Oral health disparities are problems that occur in the community due to a lack of a stable health system. Health care is necessary for an adequate quality of life in Connecticut and its current state is one that leaves thousands of low-income households all over the state without access to proper medical attention, especially when it comes to oral health care. There are many problems with the availability of private dentists to low-income patients due to low reimbursement rates when Medicaid is being used as a dental insurance. Many are spending more money on visiting the emergency room for dental related problems as opposed to going to the dentist for preventative care at least once a year. The main issue with the oral health disparities is the lack of knowledge about the importance of dentistry to the general public. Poor oral health can detrimentally impact the state of the body for an individual, so it should be treated as importantly as one would monitor their physical health. This information could reach many more families than it does today with the help of advocates that are not particularly dentists. This includes medical providers, legislatures, and key stakeholders because they interact with individuals that a dentist typically are unable to, they can make a permanent change that could eventually decrease oral health disparities for the better.
