Situated in the New England region of the United States, Massachusetts is rich in historic tradition and a leader in higher education, health care, financial services, and science and technology. Residents studying in Massachusetts will find a typical American atmosphere combined with the scenic coastal destinations of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, and Nantucket. NYU Langone Dental Medicine’s health partner sites in Massachusetts are located throughout the state. While the City of Boston established free dental programs for children as early as 1916, the first health center dental program was developed in the late 1960’s. Today there are more than 50 community health centers and satellites providing comprehensive dental services statewide. In 2010, these health centers had more than 381,000 dental patient visits. In 2013, 11.9% of people in Massachusetts had incomes below the poverty line ($23,834 for a family of four) and 7.4% of people under age 65 and below 138% of the poverty line did not have health insurance. NYU Langone Dental Medicine and its health center partners help to ensure equitable and affordable dental care while enhancing and honing the skills of postdoctoral dental practitioners.
