This report explores the implications of changes mandated by the 1989 Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (OBRA '89) for expanding access to oral health services under Early and Periodic Screening, Diagnosis, and Testing (EPSDT). After providing a general overview of EPSDT and oral health for children from families with low incomes, the report examines the feasibility of using dentists and dental hygienists as primary care health professionals and recommends policy changes to increase the role of oral health professionals in primary care.
