Changes to Supervision Requirements May Ease Access-To-Care Problems in Rural NC – Dimensions of Dental Hygiene

“Living in charlotte, or the surrounding areas, it’s probably hard to imagine that we have a dental provider shortage, but 3 whole counties haven’t had a dentist in over 10 years, and more than 50 (out of 100) other counties have a shortage! That’s more than half of our states population that don’t have luxury of dental care. I love that we’re making changes so hygienists’ (who are qualified) can help this shortage. This has been a long time coming, but I love that we’re starting to see the changes!”
