WOMEN'S DENTAL NEEDS-REVEALED 
IN FIRST EVER GOVERNMENT STUDY 
ON WOMEN

Visiting your dentist helps you to keep your smile beautiful for a lifetime

Dental Care

While the majority (67.2 percent) of women visited a dentist during 2000, approximately one-third had not visited a dentist for a year or more. Hispanic and Black women (41.1 percent and 40.2 percent, respectively) were more likely than White women and women of other race/ethnicity (29.5 percent and 33.2 percent respectively) to have gone without dental care for a year or more. Less than 1 percent of women had never seen or talked to a dentist, though Hispanic women were more likely than women of all other race and ethnic groups never to have seen a dentist.

Women with family incomes of at least $20,000 were more likely to have seen or talked to a dentist in the last year (73.3 percent) than were women with lower family incomes (48.0 percent). Among lower-income women (less than $20,000) 50.5 percent had gone a year or more since they last saw a dentist, 48 percent saw a dentist in the last year, and 1.5 percent reported never having seen a dentist.

67.22% of all women have reported seeing or talking to a dentist within the past year, 32.1% of women reported seeing or talking to a dentist more than one year ago, and 0.71% of women reported never seeing or talking to a dentist.

 

73.3% of women with incomes of $20,000 or more reported seeing a dentist within the last year, while 26.3% have seen one over one year ago, and 0.5% report never seeing a dentist.  Of women with incomes less than $20,000, 48.0% report seeing a dentist within the last year, 50.5% seeing one over one year ago, and 1.5% report never seeing a dentist.
