Oral health and oral health care use among able-bodied adults enrolled in Medicaid (September 2021 Article 3)

JADA September 2021

Background. Oral health care use remains low among adult Medicaid recipients, despite the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act’s expansion increasing access to care in many states. It remains unclear the extent to which low use reflects either low demand for care or barriers to accessing care. The authors aimed to examine factors associated with low oral health care use among adults enrolled in Medicaid.

Keywords. Medicaid; health policy; care use.

Marketing Your Dental Practice (While Avoiding Unnecessary Legal Problems)

Overview
Maintaining a website and a social media presence is now essential for dentists and their practices. That can be a daunting task, especially because it comes in addition to helping patients, managing staff and keeping the practice running day-to-day. In this presentation, ADA Senior Associate General Counsel Jeffrey Fraum highlights the legal requirements and pitfalls dentists face when marketing via the web and social media. As a supplementary course to the American Dental Association publication, "A Dentist’s Guide to the Law: 246 Things Every Dentist Should Know," this presentation is most beneficial when viewed in conjunction with reading the book.

This presentation covers:
• Legal limits on marketing and advertising a dental practice
• Finding reputable web designers and how to contract with them
• How HIPAA applies when designing a website and communicating with patients via social media
• Online accessibility standards
• Avoiding "drive-by" accessibility lawsuits
• Avoiding copyright infringements with your practice website and social media
• Responding to negative reviews on social media


This course is $49 for ADA members and $69 for non-members
