Examining continuity of care for Medicaid-enrolled children receiving oral health services in medical offices.
To understand continuity of oral health services for Medicaid-enrolled children utilizing the North Carolina (NC) Into the Mouths of Babes (IMB) preventive oral health program, the researchers examined the time to a dentist visit after a child’s third birthday. They found that children with only IMB visits compared to only dentist visits before age 3 had lower rates of dentist visits after their third birthday.
