Improving Oral Health
The Pennsylvania Office of Rural Health and DentaQuest Institute have partnered to pilot the MORE Care (Medical, Oral Expanded Care) program within the state. The goal of this partnership is to find solutions to the oral health disparities that exist within rural communities. Oral health will be introduced into primary care practices and dental referral networks will be built.
