    This report proposes a new approach to policy for state financing of oral health care for the 20 million children who lack access to preventive and reparative services. It explores the opportunity that the State Children's Health Insurance Program (SCHIP) presents to legislators and state policymakers to develop effective new pediatric oral health programs, reform ineffective pediatric dental Medicaid programs, and maximize the impact of public health approaches to improve the oral health of children who suffer the most oral disease.
