    Notice of Meeting

    On Thursday, March 22, 2018, the Little Hoover Commission will conduct a public hearing to examine the progress the Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) has made in addressing recommendations from the Commission’s April 2016 report, Fixing Denti-Cal. The Commission will hear from key stakeholders, including Denti-Cal patients and providers, about their experiences with the program. The hearing will begin at 9:30 a.m. in Room 437 of the State Capitol in Sacramento.

    At the hearing, the Commission will first hear from a panel consisting of family members of Denti-Cal patients, who will discuss the challenges of obtaining dental care and services.  Next, the Commission will hear from several Denti-Cal providers, including representatives from Golden State Dental Group, Western Dental Services, WellSpace Health and PDI Surgery Center, on the potential financial and procedural obstacles that may limit access to care.  The Commission will then hear from a leading oral health policy thought leader, who will discuss the importance of ensuring stakeholder oversight and delivering preventative care for Denti-Cal patients.  Lastly, the Commission will hear from representatives of DHCS who will provide updates on implementation of the Commission’s recommendations and discuss how recent reforms are striving to improve the oral health of Medi-Cal children.  The State Dental Director will describe the California Department of Public Health’s role in shaping state dental policy.

    There will be an opportunity for public comment at the end of the hearing.  Public comments will be limited to three minutes per person.  The Commission also encourages written comments. 

    Immediately following the hearing, the Commission will hold a business meeting in the lower level conference room at 925 L Street in Sacramento.
