Oral Health and Well-Being in the United States

Do adults in your state feel that the condition of their mouth and teeth affects their ability to interview for a job? Do they reduce participation in social activities or limit day-to-day activities because of poor oral health? Why do high-income adults in your state not visit the dentist more frequently?  Do people expect they will lose some of their teeth as they grow older?

Oral Health & Well-Being in the United States summarizes select data on self-reported oral health status, attitudes and dental care utilization among United States adults as of 2015 based on an innovative household survey. See the report:
