Date:3/27/2009

CHICAGO, March 27 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Nearly 150 stakeholders from non-profit groups, government agencies and private industry met March 23-25 at a summit on access to dental care convened by the American Dental Association (ADA) to create a common vision toward improving the oral health of underserved populations.

Participants included dental special interest groups, federal agencies, health care policymakers, advocacy groups, dental industry, dental education and research communities, financing communities, including third-party payers and philanthropic organizations, safety net providers, non-dental health care providers, ADA leadership, dental volunteer leaders and state dental society executive directors.
