TrendNotes, August 2010

TrendNotes, published semi-annually by The National Maternal and Child Oral Health Policy Center, is designed to highlight emerging trends in children’s oral health and promote policies and programmatic solutions that are grounded in evidence-based research and practice. It focuses policymakers’ attention on the trends, opportunities and options to improve oral health for all children at lower cost through the best use of prevention, disease management, care coordination, and maximized resources.

This issue of TrendNotes provides an overview of the oral health provisions contained in the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA). Additionally, it discusses the opportunities presented by ACA, including how ACA builds on provisions included in the reauthorization of the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIPRA), to build and strengthen a comprehensive system of oral health for children.

    The National Maternal and Child Oral Health Policy Center is the first place that I consider when I am looking for the latest information and timely analysis on recent federal and state legislation, regulations, political deliberations, policies, and key players in public affairs impacting oral health.

    As chair of the Association of State and Territorial Dental Directors Policy Committee, I depend upon the expertise of the Oral Health Policy Center and excellent resources such as the Oral Health Policy Tool, Trend Notes, and Issue Briefs. In the fast moving world of politics and policy, the National Maternal and Child Oral Health Policy Center website is a critically needed source of timely information, technical assistance, and advocacy know-how.
