Dental Services Advisory Committee (DSAC)
A subcommittee of the Health Services Advisory Council (HSAC), this 13-member group consists of a variety of dental providers, representatives from health plans and public health, health researchers and a health care consumer. The committee provides clinical guidance to enhance the department's ability to design dental care benefit and coverage policies for Minnesota Health Care Programs. Like HSAC, DSAC uses evidence-based research to inform recommendations used to advise the DHS Commissioner on pertinent dental policy topics.
