    Notice of Meeting

    On Thursday, September 24, 2015, the Little Hoover Commission will conduct a public hearing on Denti-Cal, the program that provides dental care for Medi-Cal recipients. The hearing will begin at 9 a.m. in Room 437 of the State Capitol in Sacramento.

    As part of this review, the Commission will examine the administrative workings of the Denti-Cal program and hear from advocates for improving Denti-Cal outcomes. The Commission also will examine impacts on Denti-Cal patients due to low dental provider participation rates and consider ideas to attract more providers and broaden the availability of care.

    At the hearing the Commission will hear from two state legislators who will discuss their reasons for asking the Little Hoover Commission to review the Denti-Cal program. The Commission also will hear from a panel of representatives from the Department of Health Care Services and Delta Dental of California, who will discuss the current administration of the Denti-Cal program. Another panel will include representatives from the California Dental Association and the Children’s Dental Health Clinic, who will offer the dental provider perspective on Denti-Cal. Another panel will feature a senior director of the Children’s Partnership, a nonprofit child advocacy organization. She will speak about how current Denti-Cal difficulties directly impact children in California. The final panel will feature California’s new State Dental Director, who will describe how the California Department of Public Health is building a plan to reduce oral health disparities among California populations.

    There will be an opportunity for public comment at the end of the hearing. The Commission also encourages written comments.

    Immediately following the hearing, the Commission will hold a business meeting in the legislative counsel conference room located on the lower level of 925 L Street in Sacramento. Additional teleconference locations accessible to the public during the meeting will be: 41608 Indian Trail, Suite 1, Rancho Mirage, CA. Following the business meeting, the Californians’ Interactions with Government study subcommittee will meet to discuss next steps for the project.
