This report considers the effect of Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis, and Testing (EPSDT) program revisions on the provision of oral health care to children and adolescents covered by the program. The 1989 Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (OBRA '89) included oral health professionals as primary health providers under the terms of the original program. The introduction reviews the background of the EPSDT program and the OBRA '89 changes. The report then considers the feasibility of using dentists and dental hygienists as primary care providers, reviews the advantages of doing so, and recommends policy changes to increase the role of oral health providers in primary care.
