Insurance is the largest barrier to obtaining dental care. According to the C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital survey, 42% of children who lack coverage receive regular dental care. That compares to 90% of children who have dental insurance and 86% of those enrolled in public coverage, such as Medicaid.
