Oral Health Access for Disadvantaged Youth
For the week of March 30th, 2014
Many young children in Minnesota have no access to dental care. This at risk-group is highly susceptible to caries—the decay that produces cavities. When untreated dental issues grow serious, these children often end up in emergency rooms which are ill equipped to deal with oral health issues. On this week’s Access Minnesota, University of Minnesota Pediatrician Dr. Amos Deinard tells us about a new initiative to improve the dental care for kids in 41 Minnesota counties.
