Dentist Visit in Last Year

New York Finger Lakes Region and Western New York

There are significant differences in the frequency of dental visits. Within the lowest income segment (under $20K), only 56 percent of adults have been to a dentist in the prior 12 months, compared to 89 percent of adults with income at $75 or above. Urban and rural adults are less likely to have seen a dentist than suburban residents. It’s also notable that the visit rate among Medicaid enrollees (62 percent) is much lower than the privately insured population (79 percent), and not significantly different from the uninsured (58 percent).
