Green Bay Press-Gazette - Proposal aims at better dental care for Medicaid recipients:

Wisconsin is 89% fluoridated:

"11,243 Medicaid patients of all ages sought treatment in a hospital emergency department for dental problems from Oct. 1, 2004, through Sept. 30, 2005."

" poor children too often receive dental care in hospital emergency rooms because dentists don't want to accept Medicaid patients."
