Critical services for our children: integrating mental and oral health into primary care.

[No authors listed]

Abstract

Grantmakers have long been interested in improving children's access to health care. Yet, a number of services critical to children's healthy growth and development--such as mental health and oral health services--fall outside the traditional primary care model. This fragmentation of services has contributed to access barriers and has compromised the quality of pediatric care. Growing awareness of the importance of mental health and oral health has resulted in a variety of innovative efforts to integrate these services into children's health care.
