CSDA, LEGISLATIVE LEADERS TO ANNOUNCE CT DENTISTS

SIGN UP IN RECORD NUMBERS TO PARTICIPATE

IN STATE’S MEDICAID DENTAL PROGRAM FOR CHILDREN

On Wednesday, January 6, 2010, the Connecticut State Dental Association (CSDA) will hold a press conference with the Legislature’s Public Health Committee co-Chairs, Senator Jonathan Harris and Representative Betsy Ritter, to announce the release of a report by the CSDA on their successful efforts to increase the number of Connecticut dentists providing care to children in the state’s Medicaid dental program. The press conference will be held in Room 1C of the Legislative Office Building in Hartford.

Since the inception of the new children’s Medicaid dental program, known as the CT Dental Health Partnership, in late 2008, more than 800 dentists have joined the program and are actively treating children in the state’s HUSKY program, resulting in a dramatic statewide increase in children receiving dental care through the Partnership.

DATE:            WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 6TH

TIME:            12:30 P.M.

LOCATION:   LEGISLATIVE OFFICE BUILDING ROOM 1C 

                      HARTFORD, CT
