Dental Care for Massachusetts is a group of organizations united in support of SD 1005/HD 2156—legislation introduced by state Senator Harriette Chandler, Representative Kate Hogan, and Representative Smitty Pignatelli that would authorize dental therapists in Massachusetts, increasing dental access for vulnerable populations and making care more affordable.
