H.R. 2422 AKA the Action for Dental Health Act of 2018
I’d strongly recommend and support the passage of House H.R. H.R. 2422 bill AKA - the Action for Dental Health Act of 2018 — which would authorize $18 million in each of the fiscal years 2018-2022 for the oral health promotion and disease prevention programs at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). It’d establish a new “Action for Dental Health Program” to provide grants for oral health education, dental disease prevention, and reducing barriers to dental services. State or local dental associations, state oral health programs, dental education programs, and community organizations that help facilitate dental services for underserved populations would be eligible for these grants.
Proper dental care is important for people’s health, social well-being, and job prospects. Approximately 15 percent of the U.S. population is underserved by existing dental systems, and others aren’t able to access dental care due to poverty.
