Ask Your State Legislator to Support SB 108: Dental Care for Pregnant Moms

Poor oral health is a significant Medicaid cost driver. SB 108 would provide access to basic oral health services and help establish good oral health habits during pregnancy. Giving a pregnant mom a solid oral health foundation can help eliminate costly and unnecessary emergency room visits and even result in healthier pregnancies. It’s also well known that the oral health of the mother is the best predictor of the child’s oral health. By establishing healthier mouths and habits for mothers, thus delaying the transmission of oral disease to the child, SB 108 could help reduce another huge Medicaid cost driver – the high expense of treating early childhood dental decay.

The dentists visiting the Capitol made a great impact spreading this important message; however, you can help further this momentum by writing your legislator in support of SB 108. Please take a few minutes to send an e-mail or make a phone call using our easy Capwiz system.
