Expanding Access to Care with Scope of Practice

Legislators in each state construct policies to define legal scope of practice (SOP) for dental hygienists in their state.

The Oral Health Workforce Research Center developed an infographic that depicts state-level variation in DH SOP.

This article discusses the infographic tool to help oral health advocacy groups, policy makers, and other stakeholders better understand the issues which impact access to care.
