"Dentist shortage hurts poor, rural Kansans
Poor Kansans and rural communities lack adequate dental services and the problem will get worse if the state doesn't do something, according to the Kansas Health Institute."
Tooth decay: a sad national epidemic caused by lack of dentists who care and not a fluoride need. Extensive lobbying, political maneuvering and expensive public relations campaigns by organized dentistry sway legislators to add fluoride chemicals into public water supplies, 2/3 of which already are, to benefit those whom dentists neglect. Protecting their high-salaried monopoly, dentists lobby against dental groups offering quality, cheaper fixes. Fluoride product makers benefit most.
