ORAL HEALTH CRISIS IN HAWAI‘I.
2019 Hawaii Legislative Recap
During the 2019 Hawaii Legislative session, seven bills were introduced pertaining to oral health. Although bills reinstating adult Medicaid dental benefits, regulating dental assistants, and fluoridating public water failed, the oral health community made their voice heard! Great strides were made in telehealth and reducing children’s consumption of sugary beverages with the passing of SB1246 and SB549.
