Recently, the American Dental Hygienists' Association (ADHA) issued a position paper that supported managed dental care because of its potential to increase access to preventive oral health services.[4] However, anecdotal evidence from dental hygienists and empirical evidence from general dental studies suggest that the quality of dental hygiene care may be compromised under managed dental care plans.[5] The purpose of this study was to empirically examine whether patients insured by managed dental care plans received lower quality dental hygiene care than those who were not.
These findings, that the quality of dental care is lower in managed-care settings, may generalize to dental hygiene care, since dentist-employers often dictate office philosophy, time allotted for preventive procedures, and practice patterns followed by dental hygienists.[22] Thus, theory and prior empirical results suggest patients enrolled in managed dental care plans receive lower quality dental hygiene care than patients not enrolled in such plans, which is the hypothesis tested in this study.
49% of companies without managed dental care plan to add it in the next two years.
