Alaska State Ombudsman Kate Burkhart released a report of an ombudsman-initiated investigation of the Alaska Department of Corrections Dental Services Program at Goose Creek Correctional Center (GCCC) today. The Ombudsman found that the Department of Corrections is unable to timely provide medically necessary dental health care to people incarcerated at GCCC and is inconsistent in its responses to dental care requests and complaints. The Ombudsman made 12 recommendations to improve the dental services at GCCC and statewide. The Department accepted all of the recommendations and has begun implementing them.
