Listen to the story here.

Oral health is an often neglected area of overall health. Recent studies have found that many people, especially in the Midwest, aren’t getting regular dental care.

On a recent segment of KCUR-FM’s Central Standard, reporter Elana Gordon talks with Kevin Robertson, executive director of the Kansas Dental Association; and Dr. John Rapley, chair of the Periodontics Department at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. Together, they discuss the importance of good dental health and the reasons why many people do not receive dental healthcare.

KCUR-FM is a service of the University of Missouri-Kansas City.
