From Oral Health and Access to Dental Care for Ohioans, 2007

Oral Health and Access

to Dental Care for Ohioans, 2007

Dental Care Remains Greene County's Top Unmet Health Care

Need for Children and Low-income Adults

Oral diseases such as tooth decay and gum infections still affect a large proportion of Ohioans.

Unnecessary dental disease and oral infections are costly problems for families, employers and

government. Severe dental problems can result in poor performance or absence from school or work.

Oral disease has been associated with other serious health problems including heart and lung diseases,

stroke, diabetes, low birth weight and premature births.

Access to dental care means that people can get the dental care they need when they want it. To get that

care, a person must have two things: availability of a private dental office or safety net clinic (operated

by local governments, hospitals and community agencies) and a means to pay for the care. Lacking such

means is the most common barrier to accessing dental care. Low-income families who rely on Medicaid

At-a-Glance: Oral Health and Access to

Dental Care for Ohioans, 2007

Oral Health:

  • Cavities: Twenty-six percent of children in third grade and 28 percent of 3–5-year-old

Head Start children have untreated cavities.

  • Toothaches: One in 10 children has had a recent toothache.

  • Disparities: Disease rates are significantly higher among children from low-income families

and those from Appalachia.

Access to Care:

  • Dental care is the No. 1 unmet health care need for children.

  • Disparities: The children most likely to have untreated cavities are poor, non-white, and/or

reside in Appalachian counties.

  • Uninsured: 23 percent of Ohio children (about 670,000) are uninsured for dental care.

  • Medicaid: Only 5 percent of Ohio Medicaid consumers under age 3, and 44 percent of

those ages 3–18 years had a dental visit in 2005.

Oral Health:

  • Loss of Teeth: In 2004, 46 percent of adults had at least one tooth removed due to tooth

decay or gum disease (improved from 50 percent in 2000).

■ Including 6 percent who had all of their teeth removed (versus 9 percent in 2000).

Access to Care:

  • Dental care is the No. 1 unmet health care need for low-income adults and is second to

prescription needs for adults overall.

  • Disparities: The adults most likely to have dental problems are poor, non-white and/or reside

in Appalachian counties.

  • Uninsured: 43 percent of Ohio adults (about 3.6 million) are uninsured for dental care.

■ 38 percent uninsured among adults aged 18–64

■ 66 percent uninsured among adults aged 65+

Safety net dental care programs in ohio

Be sure to visit the Ohio Department of Health,

Bureau of Oral Health Services (BOHS) Web site at

http://www.odh.ohio.gov/odhPrograms/ohs/oral/

oral1.aspx for more information about BOHS

programs and resources.

Coalitions

Safety Net Dental Care Programs provide clinical

dental services and generally are operated by local

health departments, community health centers,

hospitals and other organizations that serve the

community. Ohio has approximately 100 programs

that provide basic dental services and 12 programs

that offer preventive care. Safety Net Dental Care

Programs offer sliding fee schedules, reduced fees

or free care to clients who can’t afford to pay a

private dentist.

This brochure lists each Safety Net Dental Care

Program in Ohio and serves as a quick reference

for making referrals to these programs. The first

section, Primary Dental Care, lists safety net

programs that offer basic dental care. Please use this

section when referring clients in need of

examinations, x-rays, fillings, extractions, partials,

dentures, root canals, cleanings and those who have

dental emergencies.* The Dental Hygiene

Programs section lists dental hygiene programs.

Referrals to these programs should be limited to

clients in need of annual/semi-annual examinations,

x-rays, cleanings and fluoride treatments.

*Not all clinics provide all of these services. Clients

should call individual programs for details.
