Issues

Expanding dental services

In 2013, Gilmour introduced a bill to allow dental hygienists to perform duties usually reserved for dentists, including pulling teeth and adding fillings. Gilmour noted that these medical professionals are likely to be able to perform these expanded duties and increase the supply of dental care available in the state. Advocates for children's health and low-income families have expressed support for the bill, but dentists have pointed to other solutions and criticized the lack of geographic targeting in the bill.[1]

Scorecards

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.

Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of New Hampshire scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.

Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
