Access to oral healthcare can be challenging for many patients and limited accessibility has been further amplified during the COVID-19 pandemic. Poor oral health is linked to several health complications and insurance coverage for dental care can be restrictive or nonexistent. Recent surveys show that many Vermonters of low-income status feel that their oral health is in poor condition. This project aims to review current barriers to maintaining oral health and propose potential solutions for patients during the COVID-19 pandemic at Milton Family Practice. Two handouts for patients were created, as well as one handout and a smartphrase within the electronic medical record for primary care providers to further assist with oral health maintenance.
