Burton Edelstein DDS MPH is Professor of Dentistry and Health Policy at Columbia University where he chairs the Section of Population Oral Health at the College of Dental Medicine. He is also Senior Fellow in Public Policy and President Emeritus of the DC-based Children’s Dental Health Project (www.cdhp.org), a nonprofit policy organization that advances the oral health interests of children and their families. A Board Certified pediatric dentist, Edelstein practiced pediatric dentistry in Connecticut and taught at Harvard for 22 years before relocating to Washington DC to serve as a Robert Wood Johnson Health Policy Fellow and Health Legislative Aide to the U.S. Senate Minority Leader. He contributed to the U.S. Surgeon General’s Oral Health in America report, led the Surgeon General’s Workshop on Children and Oral Health, and managed a federal interagency Oral Health Initiative. He has participated in four Institute of Medicine projects, testified before Congress multiple times on dental care for children, and provided support to Government Accountability Office’s dental studies. From 2009 to 2014 he served on the federal Medicaid and CHIP Payment and Access Commission (MACPAC) that advises Congress, Agencies, and States on Medicaid and CHIP policy. At Columbia, Burt leads an interdisciplinary Early Childhood Caries prevention and innovation study and directs four federal training grants: one for pre-doctoral students that includes the DDS-MPH Scholars Program; one for post-doctoral pediatric dentistry fellows, one for faculty development, and one for AEGD Fellows in the care of people living with HIV/AIDS. His academic and consulting contributions focus on public policies that affect children’s oral health and their access to care. Through CDHP, he has helped secure legislation and regulation for dental coverage in CHIP and Health Reform (ACA) while protecting the dental benefit in Medicaid. His more than 100 publications include contributions to the peer-reviewed dental literature, book chapters, commissioned papers, and policy documents. Edelstein’s work has been recognized by associations of pediatric (AAPD) and public health dentistry (ASTDD, AAPHD, MSDA), dental students (ASDA), dental societies (ACD, CDS, CSDA, ICD); the dental research community (FNIDCR), foundations (Shils, NYSDAF) and educational groups (Maryland, Harvard, Columbia, ADEA).
