Children receiving dental care in the last year

This indicator shows the percentage of children (aged 0-20 years) enrolled in Medicaid (320+ days) who had a dental visit during the past year. Diseases of the teeth and gum tissues can lead to problems with nutrition, growth, school and workplace readiness, and speech. Adoption and use of recommended oral hygiene measures are critical to maintaining overall health.
