An oral health win for kids in West Virginia!
Good news for children in West Virginia: they’ll soon have greater access to oral health services. Due to the great work of Voices member West Virginia KIDS COUNT and its partners, that state will now encourage fluoride varnish treatment, which will help protect the vulnerable teeth of young children.
Kids between the ages of six months and three years who are at high risk of dental cavities will be able to have primary care providers administer fluoride varnish treatments to protect their teeth from decay. Primary care providers who have been certified through the West Virginia University School of Dentistry will be eligible for reimbursement from the state Bureau of Medical Services. On behalf of kids in West Virginia, great job West Virginia KIDS COUNT!
