State must improve dental care for needy, judge rules - The Boston Globe - - Mass. - News:

"The advocacy coalition Health Care for All had argued in court that the state violated the civil rights of children by not adopting changes that would make it easier for them to have their teeth cleaned and their cavities filled. As a result, advocates have documented cases in which children of the poor wait months, even years, for an appointment."
