Even though New Hampshire’s Medicaid expansion covering preventative dental care for adults doesn’t take effect until April, Dr. Steve Hoffman said Dental Health Works in Keene has already been getting calls about it.

The nonprofit is one of the few dental offices in the Elm City that accepts Medicaid, and its leaders have been discussing how to approach the expansion and the new demand expected to come with it. But Hoffman said implementing the program will be challenging unless more local dentists get involved.
