Our blog will be a mouthful

By the CDHP team

The last time we checked, the mouth was still part of the body. Studies demonstrate that fact by linking oral health problems with diabetes, stroke and other health concerns. But we have separate systems for medical and dental coverage and care. And while dental coverage has increased (at least for kids -- hooray!), access to dental care remains a challenge for many. 

For these reasons and more, the Children’s Dental Health Project is launching this blog to start a conversation about oral health—why it matters and how we can improve it. Our staff will periodically blog about our work, new research and innovative strategies coming from states. We'll also feature guest bloggers. If there is an oral health-related subject you’d like us to talk about, email us at info@cdhp.org.

These are exciting times for oral health. Together, let's do some good.
