An important part of overall health is oral health—having a healthy mouth, including teeth, gums, and tongue. Access to good oral health can be thought of like a series of doors. These doors include the availability of nutritious food, dentists who accept all different types of health insurance, and health professionals who speak the same language as their patients. Some people have all the keys they need to unlock every door, while others are missing one or all of them. If people don’t have these keys, it doesn’t matter how hard they push—without the right keys, no one can get to good oral health. To make sure America benefits from everyone having good oral health, we must make sure everyone has the necessary keys.
