The American Dental Association recently released a report that highlights the state of oral health in California during the 2015 calendar year. The report examined a variety of factors, including dental care utilization, fluoridation rates, oral health status, attitudes and knowledge of the California population, and more.
Some of the highlights from the report include the following facts:
– Only 44-45% of adults answered all of HPI’s oral health knowledge survey questions correctly.
– California has 76.6 dentists per 100,000 people, higher than the national rate of 60.5.
– 64% of the population living on community water systems receives fluoridated water.
– Low-income adults in California have a higher dental health index score than the average low-income American in general, while high-income Californians have a lower score than the average high-income American.
