  • Abstract

    The California MediCal Dental Program is an insurance coverage designed to fill the need for critical dental care for low-income patients. By analyzing patterns of enrollment and payment in healthcare services, research can shed light to the dental care that low-income patients are receiving, and will further support programs that raise the standard of care for DentiCal patients. While the number of registered dental specialists rises from year to year, this does not necessarily indicate that the providers are localized where they are needed, and might reflect a sequestration of providers in urban locations, for example, leaving more rural patients at risk.
