New bill seeks improved oral health outcomes in Ohio’s most underserved communities; creating better access and jobs.
Senators Peggy Lehner (R-Kettering) and Cecil Thomas (D-Cincinnati) have introduced Senate Bill 98 (SB 98) that would create a mid-level dental provider called a Dental Therapist and decrease restrictions on the scope of practice for licensed dental hygienists seeking to improve the health of Ohioans in all communities by increasing access to dental care. The bill is supported by the Ohio Dental Hygienists’ Assocation (ODHA).
