Dental Advisory Committee

The Dental Program is part of the Clinical Services Unit and maintains oversight of the purchase and delivery of Dental Services on behalf of the MO HealthNet population. The Dental Program develops and implements policy to insure services which are medically necessary, appropriate, and cost effective. Clinical expertise is made available to Division and Departmental staff via consultation on issues related to the Dental Program.

In 2006 the MO HealthNet Division established a Dental Advisory Committee (DAC). DAC meetings are held quarterly to discuss dental policy and procedures as it relates to the MO HealthNet population. The DAC members consist of an Oral Surgeon, Orthodontist, Pedodontist, Dental Hygienist and General Practice Dentists.
