Re: Affordable Healthcare Choices

Dear U.S. Senate Health Care Committee and U. S. House Committee on Ways and Means,

I request your support in regulating the denturist profession across our nation. In the five states that regulate the denturist profession, we continue to prove our effectiveness in providing quality denture service that is safe and affordable especially for people that are ineligible for Medicaid dentures or other programs showing a needs level and for those without dental coverage in their healthcare insurance. Please consider the service; a nationally regulated denturist profession is capable of providing with the present shortfall of accessible denture service by dentist, along with the shortage of dentist across our nation especially in rural America.

Please join me at the American Public Health Association 137th Annual Meeting and Exposition where I will be presenting my presentation titled, Denturists: Alternative Healthcare Providers for Oral Health Screenings and Referral, scheduled for session 2075.0, addressing Oral Health Workforce Issues on Sunday, November 8, 2009, at 4:30 PM.

The APHA Annual Meeting is the premier public health event taking place November 7-11 in Philadelphia, PA. With more than 1,000 cutting edge scientific sessions, 700 booths of information and state-of-the-art public health products and services, this is an extremely important meeting in the public health field.

You can view my session and get more information about my presentation, detailed abstract and learning objectives by clicking on the link below. http://apha.confex.com/apha/137am/webprogram/Session27637.html
