Arthur B. Laffer –
September 19, 2012

In this document by Laffer Associates, Arthur Laffer analyzed data for all Texas Medicaid dental patients in fiscal year 2011 and finds dental service organizations "are providing dental care to some of the poorest, most underserved segments of our society. DSOs are not only providing much needed care, but they are providing that care expeditiously and relatively inexpensively when compared to non-DSO affiliated dentists," the study concludes.
