This article was produced and provided by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. Not-for-profit dental insurance provider Delta Dental of South Dakota is responding to the critical need for better access to dental services by adding 24 registered dental hygienists and community health representatives to treat, educate, and coordinate dental care for American Indian mothers, young children, and diabetics. The approach is being supported with a $3.4 million innovation award from the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
