The study reviewed 12,000 dental screens of young children in Head Start and other early learning programs across Michigan. It calls for expansion of the Healthy Kids Dental program, which vastly improves access to dental care for Medicaid-eligible children by offering dentists a reimbursement rate to help cover their costs.
