Family Factors Increase Kids’ Dental Check-Ups and Health Equity

Because children are entirely dependent upon their parents and families to coordinate their dental care, CT Health funded Connecticut Voices for Children to conduct an analysis to better understand family factors that are associated with increased access to preventive dental care for kids covered by HUSKY (Medicaid).

This infographic hones in on three factors that greatly increase the likelihood of preventive dental care for low-income children. Remarkably, racial/ethnic disparities in utilization nearly vanish when the three factors are present, indicating that they are part of the solution for achieving health equity.
