ABSTRACT
With a guiding vision that all people should have access to good oral health care, the American Dental Association (ADA) recently released its "Future of Dentistry" report, outlining ways in which the dental profession can help make the vision a reality in the U.S. ADA commissioned an oversight committee of 16 oral health care experts and 47 panelists from specialized areas of expertise to develop the 178-page document that will serve as a non-policy guide. 114 recommendations focus on six areas, including access to care, dental workforce and practice management, financing of dental services, research and dental education. Access-to-care recommendations include expansion of public funding to provide resources that would cover basic dental services for the long-term unemployed.
