The Washington Post is reporting that a group of dental specialists from around the country will visit Washington on Tuesday, June 17, to visit the nation’s capital and assess the health of its dentists.
Dr. David Siegel, a Washington dentist and president of the Association of Dental Surgeons, and Dr. Matthew Nisbett, an associate professor of dentistry at the University of Michigan School of Dentistry, are expected to speak at a public event at the U.S. Capitol.
They will be joined by representatives of the American Dental Association and American Derm Association, both of which are members of the Dental Society of America.
The group of dentists will visit the Capitol on Tuesday morning to observe and evaluate dental work and provide feedback on practices and procedures.
The Dental Services Corporation of Washington and Dental Clinic of Washington are also expected to visit on Tuesday.
They are a private company with a federal contract that pays for dental care for federal workers and for federal agencies.
Dental care is also provided at federal and state facilities in other locations, including for military personnel, retirees, veterans and the disabled.
The National Institutes of Health, which funds dental research, also has contracts to provide dental care at the Capitol.
In March, the U:S.
Congress passed a $5.1 billion dental assistance package that will provide free dental care to low-income seniors.
The dental assistance program was the first of its kind in the country.
“We are confident that we have the resources and the expertise to provide a quality, cost-effective service to the American public,” said Dental Secretary Lisa DeMaria.
“Our dental work is done with care and respect and that is important to us.”
The Washington dental workforce has undergone a major shift in the past five years, with the federal government and the D.C. government stepping in to cover a growing number of dental problems.
More than 4 million Americans were uninsured in 2015.
The number of people without health insurance increased by 8.2 million to 5.5 million in 2017.
Dentists, dentists alone, make up nearly one-quarter of the workforce, according to the Association for American Dentists.
The U.N. Office on Drugs and Crime says that there were 6.3 million people in the U, D.S., who were treated for dental problems in 2016.
Dentistry is the second-highest occupation in the United States after nursing, according the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
“The dental workforce in Washington, D:C.
is critical to our ability to provide quality care to our patients and provide the health care that they need,” DeMaria said.
“They are our health care workers.
They need to know that they are working with an organization that respects their privacy and wants to be a part of their lives.”
The D.T.C., which is part of the National Institute of Denture Control, is the primary dental provider in the District.
Dont’Care dental services in the city of about 2.8 million people also provide dental work.
“As we have seen in Washington over the past 10 years, there are many dental problems that require immediate attention,” said Dr. Michael Siegel.
“With the rise of new types of infections and the prevalence of new and growing infections, we need a robust dental team with the right training and resources to help prevent these infections and improve the health and quality of life of our patients.”
House of Representatives has approved a bill that would give all D.
N:C.:DENTAL professionals and dental care providers the same tax-free status as dental offices, dentistry clinics and dental homes.
