“For Want of a Dentist: The Rise of the Dental Therapy Movement in Tribal Nations and the U.S., Lessons from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation”
By Wendell Potter
Since 2006, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation (WKKF) has supported Tribal and non-Native communities coming together to highlight the need for dental therapists. In WKKF’s dental therapy e-book, Wendell Potter offers a fresh look at the under-the-radar oral health crisis in the United States through the prism of an effective approach centering on equity, access and opportunity. You will learn how the growth of this community-led movement has increased access to dental care through the training and deployment of mid-level care providers known as dental therapists. The e-book is available in PDF and EPUB (Apple eBook) formats.
