April 24 – Director’s Task Force on Oral Health and Access to Dental Care

Mr. Lance D. Himes, Interim Director of the Ohio Department of Health (ODH), has convened the 2014 Task Force on Oral Health and Access to Dental Care and they want to hear from YOU!

The Northeast Ohio regional meeting will be held on Thursday, April 24 at:

Kent Library
312 West Main Street
Kent, OH 44240

There will be two sessions, one in the morning and another in the afternoon. The morning session (9:30am – 12:00pm) will focus on the needs and challenges facing patients/consumers of dental services. The afternoon session (1:30pm – 4:00pm) will focus on the needs and challenges of providers, such as dentists, physicians and nurses. Participants may attend one or both sessions.

A facilitator will lead each group through a series of questions and an open discussion. There will be a focus on learning about the barriers that keep people from getting the dental care they need and ideas on how to improve access to dental care in Ohio. Affordable access to dental care has been a big concern for people with disabilities, and we strongly encourage people to attend this meeting so they can voice their thoughts and opinions.
