Methodology Notes

A Federally Qualified Health Center with an oral health component is defined by HRSA as a Health Center that has at least 0.5 FTE Dentists and/or sees 500 patients or more per year. This measure is tracked using the HRSA Uniform Data System. The Uniform Data System (UDS) tracks a variety of information, including patient demographics, services provided, staffing, clinical indicators, utilization rates, costs, and revenues. UDS data are collected from grantees and reported at the grantee, state, and national levels.
