About the Grant

Support to the State University of Iowa Foundation for the second year of the Dental Safety Net in Iowa (DSNI) project naturally builds from the first year's activities: completing and disseminating results from studies already in progress and instituting new activities relating to Affordable Care Act (ACA) implementation, dental and health home development and other potential changes to the public and private dental safety net. Year 2 will involve increasing the value of the data collected during year 1, as well as developing new activities to better understand the implication of the ACA implementation and other related changes to the oral health delivery system and the most vulnerable patients affected by these changes.
