Oral health progress in Kansas.

Author information

United Methodist Health Ministry Fund, USA.


In 2003, Kansas received a grade of "D+" from Oral Health America in an annual rating of the state's oral health status (Oral Health America, 2003). This low grade confirmed what advocates had been saying for some time: Kansas---at several levels--is not taking seriously the oral health needs of many of its citizens. The purpose of this article is to discuss the Kansas dental health system and the role of the nurse in oral health.
