Senator Tom Daschle:

"Our dental circumstances in South Dakota are not unlike any of the other parts of our health care crisis. We have only one dentist for every 250 miles. That compares to one for every 28 in Minnesota. And one out of every two miles in Massachusetts. South Dakotans oftentimes drive over 100 miles to see a dentist. But many would drive farther than that if they had one to see"
