Improve access to oral health services for all Macomb County.

Why Is This Important?

Oral health is important to overall health.  Good oral health improves a person’s ability to speak, smile, smell, taste, touch, chew, swallow, and make facial expressions to show feelings and emotions.

Lack of access to dental care for all ages remains a public health challenge.  In particular adults and children on Medicaid receive less dental care than privately insured residents.
