Dental Check-Up

Why this is important: The American Dental Association recommends that individuals visit the dentist at least two times per year. Dental check-ups allow the dentist to clean the teeth, identify any oral health problems, and provide education on improving or maintaining good oral health.

Definition: Percent of adults who visited the dentist in the last 12 months.
