What happened to the yearly free dental clinic?

As anybody who grew up with a well-intentioned, health conscious but overbearing parent knows, diligent care of one's teeth is about more than a fetching smile.

Yet even those who make regular dental appointments and both brush and floss may be unaware of the full impact of inadequate dental care. Consider these excerpts from the U.S. surgeon general's 2000 report "Oral Health in America:"

More than 50 percent of 5- to 9-year-old children have at least one cavity or filling, and that proportion increases to 78 percent among 17-year-olds. Nevertheless, these figures represent improvements in the oral health of children compared to a generation ago. An estimated 25 million individuals reside in areas lacking adequate dental care services, as defined by Health Professional Shortage Area criteria. Despite improvements in oral health status, profound disparities remain in some population groups as classified by sex, income, age and race/ethnicity. Oral and craniofacial diseases and their treatment place a burden on society in the form of lost days and years of productive work. Animal and population-based studies have demonstrated an association between periodontal diseases and diabetes, cardiovascular disease, stroke and adverse pregnancy outcomes. Expansion of community-based disease prevention and lowering of barriers to personal oral health care are needed to meet the needs of the population.

Cavities in primary teeth - a complete guide

Do you think your child is too young to need a dentist? Early childhood caries is a specific form of severe dental caries/decay that affects infants and children 6 years or younger. Severe early childhood caries begins soon after eruption of teeth. It progresses rapidly and has a lasting bad impact on the dentition.

What causes those nasty 'holes' in the teeth?

New trend in dentistry; Corporately run chains able to shave overhead, tap into Medicaid market

Dentistry has gone corporate. Instead of hanging out their shingles and building practices or working under an established dentist and eventually becoming a partner, dental-school graduates are increasingly opting to work for corporately run chains, according to studies by the American Dental Association.

Key factors driving the trend: Soaring student debt levels; the proliferation of increasingly costly dental technology; and the need for mobility options among two-income couples, according to an American Dental Association study.

Corporate dental operations often are better able to shave overhead by bulk buying of supplies and equipment. And in New Mexico, they've also been successful tapping into the Medicaid market.

"For the single guy on the corner it's going to be very difficult to compete any more," said Robert Gherardi, an Albuquerque dentist who has been in practice for more than 30 years.
