About Access to Health Services and Oral Health
Access to health care is the timely use of personal health services to achieve the best health outcomes. It impacts people's overall physical, social, oral, and mental health—and their quality of life. Oral health is essential to overall health because, without proper oral care, people can develop oral infections such as tooth decay and gum disease. Oral infections are associated with diabetes, heart disease, stroke, premature births, and low birth weights.
About Progress Review Webinars
The Progress Review webinars focus on tracking and measuring the progress of select Healthy People 2020 objectives throughout the decade.
