Dental care in the ER: wrong place, wrong time

When someone shows up in a hospital emergency room with a toothache, it's not just the patient who hurts. Dental treatment in the ER - inefficient, costly and untimely - is a sign of missed opportunity for preventive health and a failure for coordinated care. In a better-coordinated system, as in Oregon's proposed health transformation, patient-centered teams would help steer patients toward timely preventive care, including dental checkups.
