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.
