By: Marko Vujicic

This report, produced by Kamyar Nasseh, Ph.D.; Marko Vujicic, Ph.D. of the American Dental Association's Health Policy Resources Center, finds that:  

"For children, dental care utilization increased considerably in the early 2000s but has held steady from 2003 through 2011. The increase in utilization was driven entirely by gains among lower income groups."
