Letters to the editor: Oral health crisis: Kids lack basic care :: Forum :: PIONEER PRESS :: Niles Herald-Spectator

"We are facing an oral health care crisis in our state." In Illinois, where fluoridation is required by the state "Over the last three decades funding has decreased, dental clinics have closed and the dental care gap has widened. Despite an increase in enrollment for government dental programs, millions of children and adults go without dental care."
