ASDOH vs. Midwestern Debate Topics:

1. Will dental therapists lower the cost around dental care?

There is a lot of controversy on whether or not the implementation of dental therapists will not only combat a shortage of dental providers, but also if they will act as a solution to lowering the cost of dental care overall. The Pew Charitable Trusts, a driving force behind many of the legislative battles happening across the country, seem to believe so; the ADA and state dental associations, however, have a different point of view.

2. Should online forums, such as Yelp, be allowed to review dentists and other health care providers?

We are living in the age of technology, social media, and an unlimited amount of material at our fingertips. Many patients turn to websites such as Yelp to find dentists and doctors in the area. There's only one problem: any negative reviews, including those full of slander, cannot be addressed by the health care provider due to HIPAA compliancy laws. However, if patients are barred from sharing a negative experience it may be considered censorship and a violation of first amendment rights.
