Oral health is vital to the well being of all individuals as evidenced by the inclusion of oral health goals in Healthy People 2010 (HP 2010). The burden or poor oral health is seen disproportionately by the low income. Oral health of women with low income is of vital importance due to the negative effects of poor oral health on themselves and their children. This study used results from the 2003-2004 National Health (n=141) and Nutrition Examination Study (NHANES) and the 2003-2004 Ohio Family Health Survey (n=365) to examine dental need and dental use by low income women at the state and national level guided by the Behavioral Model of Health Services Use. Results of bivariate and regression analysis showed that only about half of women reported a dental visit in the past year at the state and national level. Additionally, insurance status and availability of providers were found to be significantly associated with dental utilization. These findings indicate further work is need to meet state and national goals of dental service use by women with low income. Additional research is also needed to identify public health nursing interventions to increase dental service utilization by this population.
