      Re:    Stakeholders’ meeting to address oral health care needs in Medina

Dear Ms. Johnsen:

The 1998 Ohio Family Health Survey found that dental care was the number one
unmet health care need identified for both Ohio children and adults. The 1999
Medina County Family First Council Community Health Care and Social Services
Perception Telephone Survey estimated that 51,000 Medina residents have no
available dental insurance. We think this situation is unacceptable.

The Medina County Health Department is leading the community in addressing
this critical need by bringing together stakeholders, such as you, to explore the
formation of an oral health coalition. Please join us on Friday, August, 10th from
1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Medina County Health Department, 4800
Ledgewood Drive. Please contact Rose Fini (330.723.9511, or Patricia Stevens (330.723.9688, by August 1st to confirm your attendance.

We look forward to seeing you at the meeting.


David A. Baldwin, MPH, RS
Health Commissioner, Medina County
