Edelman Speaks Out For Children

Edelman Speaks Out For Children:

"One 12-year-old boy, Deamonte, was refused care by 26 dentists because they wouldn't treat Medicaid patients, she said. The infection in his teeth spread to his brain and he died last year after spending two weeks in the hospital at a cost to taxpayers of $250,000. Removing his abscessed tooth would have cost $80."
