Dentists and legislators discuss initiatives

The Georgia Dental Association held a convention in Macon to discuss dental health issues in the Macon area and throughout the state, including programs that would make it possible for rural areas to sustain dental practices.

If adopted, a tax credit and student loan repayment program would make it possible for more dentists to practice in Georgia’s rural areas.
