Why gaps exist in children’s dental health and how to close them in the Chicago area
Dental care is one of the nation’s greatest unmet health needs among kids, especially in low-income communities. A team of researchers at the University of Illinois Chicago is working to understand why that is and what can be done to reduce disparities in those areas.
Reset talks to one of the lead researchers for more details. Plus, we check in with a mobile dental clinic that’s already working to close the gap on the city’s far South Side.
GUESTS: Dr. Molly Martin, pediatrician and associate professor of pediatrics at the College of Medicine at the University of Illinois Chicago
Lori Gross, manager of the mobile dental clinic at Roseland Community Hospital
