Nearly 76 million individuals are currently enrolled in Medicaid. As part of our efforts to ensure quality dental care for everyone, the ADA encourages dentists to participate in Medicaid.
The ADA Council on Advocacy for Access and Prevention seeks regular guidance and support from its Medicaid Provider Advisory Committee (MPAC). Chaired by Dr. Sidney Whitman since 2011, this committee offers tools for dental professionals who want to treat Medicaid-eligible patients. In addition, the ADA Health Policy Institute (HPI) offers webinars and white papers for professionals who want to learn more about Medicaid enrollment, outcomes and trends.
