Think Tank: U.S. Dental Access Not So Great

Even well-off U.S. residents report having more trouble getting affordable dental care than low-income residents of Germany and the Netherlands, and low-income U.S. residents say they have a much harder time getting care.

Researchers at the Commonwealth Fund, New York, have included that data in a new system that lets users compare health data from 7 wealthy countries -- Australia, Canada, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States.

average incomes and below-average incomes still reported different levels of difficulties with getting care.

The difficulty rate was only 5% for German participants with above-average incomes and 11% for participants with below-average incomes.
