Aug 23 DRW Supports SB 89 to Establish Dental Therapists
DRW submitted testimony in support of Senate Bill 89 which would expand the pool of professionals that can provide basic dental care, by establishing Dental Therapists in Wisconsin. Dental Therapists could help to address dental care access issues faced by people with disabilities and other under-served populations. Access to dental care is a major concern for many Wisconsinites who have a disability, resulting in many preventable extractions, a high incidence of periodontal disease, and other reduced health outcomes.
