A National Study of the Practice Characteristics of Women in Dentistry and Potential Impacts on Access to Care for Underserved Communities

Demographic changes within the dental profession including aging and gender distribution are affecting dental practice characteristics and practice locations. OHWRC will collaborate with the American Dental Association (ADA) to conduct secondary data analyses to assess the impact of demographic changes in dentistry on access to oral health services, particularly in rural areas and for underserved populations.
