More to Smile About in 2014: Report Charts Improvements in NH’s Oral Health Care Landscape | Print |  E-mail

New Hampshire has taken some significant steps to improve oral health through prevention, improved access and additional workforce providers, according to a new report from the New Hampshire Dental Society (NHDS). 

The “More to Smile About 2014,” report recently released as an update to “Something to Smile About” from 2010 documents changes in oral health care in the state during the last four years. NHDS’ main goals included prevention education, removing barriers to access, supporting current public/partnerships and enhancing the oral health workforce.

“We analyzed changes in oral health from 2010 until now, to see if our efforts have been successful,” said Jim Williamson, NHDS Executive Director. “Improvements have been made and new initiatives are underway. The Society is committed to working to find ways to get all New Hampshire residents the oral care they need.”

In 2013, New Hampshire was one of only five states to earn an “A” grade in a Pew Center on the States report regarding the use of sealants in preventive oral health care for children. New Hampshire currently has sealant programs in more than 75 percent of its high-risk schools. Another Pew study showed that as of 2013, only one percent of the state’s population is considered “underserved,” which is a decrease from 4.6 percent in 2011. In an additional study, 75 percent of New Hampshire adults 18 and over reported visiting a dentist in a one-year period.
