Nevada Pilots Innovative Program to Increase Access to Preventive Oral Care for Children

This brief highlights a Nevada program that aims to target oral health care gaps among children who rely on school-based sealant programs to prevent dental decay, the most common chronic dental condition among children. The program, which officially launched in January 2021, allows caregivers of Medicaid enrollees under the age of 21 to schedule a virtual check-up with a dental professional and receive an at-home fluoride kit.
