Family dentist and anchorwoman Sabino Hills says the Affordable Health Care Act will impact her family’s dental practice.
Hills is from Anchorage and works at Sabino Health, an Anchorage dental practice with a specialty in oral health.
We’ve asked Hills to share her thoughts on the Affordable Healthcare Act and how she thinks it will affect family dental practice in Alaska.
The Affordable Care Care Act requires a primary care physician to have a state-approved license.
This means that if a dentist in Alaska can’t get the license, then that dentist will be unable to provide care in a community setting.
Hills has worked at Sabinos practice for the past eight years.

Hill said she and her husband decided to leave Sabino because of the health care overhaul and the costs associated with dental care.
They have two kids.
She says that if you’re going to work in an urban setting and have to go to a rural setting, you don’t want to be a primary caregiver.
Hill is an anchorwoman for a popular daytime TV show called ‘The Family Dentist’ and hosts the popular daytime talk show ‘Sabino’s Corner’ on MSNBC.
I think the Affordable health care act is going to impact a lot of families, Hills said.
I’m really hopeful.
I think that we are going to see a lot more families come to our practice.
We are all on board with it, she said.
The Affordable Health Act is not going to affect my practice at all, she told us.
I will continue to be on the air and talk about it because I think it is a great thing.
If there is any dentists that are in my position that don’t know, that don: we would just be surprised, she added.
Do you think that the Affordable healthcare act is affecting your practice?
I don’t think so.
I am going to continue to work and keep working to provide the best dental care possible for my patients and the best value for my money.
In a recent interview with Salon, Hills was asked about the new ACA rules regarding dental care, saying that if they don’t go into effect by July 1, 2019, they will affect the dental care she provides to her patients.
She said that since the ACA requires a dentist to have an approved state-issued license, it is not possible for her to do her work in Alaska without the necessary license.
She said that she and the family dentist had been discussing this in advance with the state and were looking at options for our practice that could be compliant with the ACA.
Hills is not alone in her concerns.
The American Dental Association (ADA) issued a statement this week stating that dental care in Alaska will likely be impacted by the Affordable care act.
The ADA said that the ACA will “impact many aspects of dental care including dental care for seniors and people with disabilities, as well as providing additional protections for patients with pre-existing conditions and those with preexisting conditions.”
ADA President and CEO Robert Shulman said that dental offices that rely on state-regulated dental licensing programs may not be able to comply with the new regulations.
Shulman also said that he hopes that the ADA will provide a list of providers that will be exempt from the new requirements.
He said that while the ADA would like to see all dental practices comply with ACA requirements, he said that there will be exceptions to the rule.
There will be a few providers that we have talked to and we’ll look into that, Shulmann said.
But that’s the short list, he added.
