In 2008, the Children’s Dental Health Project and Association of State and Territorial Dental Directors published the first report documenting state laws on dental “screening” of school-aged children. The report found that 11 states and the District of Columbia had dental screening laws (DSLs). The purpose of this report is to document whether DSLs have expanded and the degree to which these laws are advancing broader goals to improve dental care access and reduce dental diseases.
