Dentist Shortage

Dental therapists fall between a dentist and a dental hygienist. They can provide preventative and restorative care.

The Floridians for Access Coalition states that five million Floridians live in areas with a dentist shortage crisis.

Dr. Frank Catalanotto, a spokesperson of the Floridians for Dental Access coalition, pediatric dentist, longtime dental educator, and past president of the American Dental Education Association, joined us to take a closer look at this issue - as well as a proposed solution.
