Oral Health

Oral Health Program Description

Oral health care is a fundamental aspect of overall well-being and is especially important during child and adolescent development. According to the Pew Center on the States, Connecticut has made significant progress in achieving six of eight benchmarks to address children's dental health needs. It now ranks fourth nationwide on its ability to provide oral health care access to children. However, less than half of Connecticut children with HUSKY insurance receive dental care annually.
