Disparities in oral health
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
Oral health disparities are profound in the United States. Despite major improvements in oral health for the population as a whole, oral health disparities exist for many racial and ethnic groups, by socioeconomic status, gender, age and geographic location. Some social factors that can contribute to these differences are lifestyle behaviors such as tobacco use, frequency of alcohol use, and poor dietary choices.

Yvonne Evans-RDA, BS, TNDAA Secretary 2013-2014

The Road to Fellowship has been traveled by many others. It is based on your ability to want to learn more about your profession. I remember sitting in the rear of the room at my 1st National ADAA Conference as an Alternate Delegate. I was so impressed by the formality and acknowledgement of our ADAA members' accomplishments!
