A dental service is any diagnostic, preventive, or treatment service provided by or under the supervision of a dentist. The data represents dental service use among all Minnesota Health Care Program (i.e., Medical Assistance or MinnesotaCare) recipients ages up to 100 years during the calendar year (January 1 through December 31) as determined by dental claims submitted by a licensed DHS provider. Data in years 2012 through 2013 represent paid dental claims only, while calendar years 2014 and beyond represent paid, unpaid, or denied dental claims.
