    Brighter Smiles, Brighter Lives: Alaska Native Dental Program Model for Nation


    Alaska’s Dental Health Aide Therapist (DHAT) program graduated five on Friday, bringing to 32 the number of midlevel dental providers available to serve in tribal communities throughout the state. The DHAT program, now in its 10th year, makes dental care accessible to more than 40,000 Alaska Natives in rural areas where before 87 percent of 4- and 5-year–olds and 91 percent of 12- to 15-year-olds suffered with tooth decay.
