Bridge to Healthy Smiles |

Fluoridation has been state-mandated in Illinois for decades. But even more money is required for dental care: "The Bridge to Healthy Smiles Coalition was successful in getting $2 million to open an estimated 10 dental clinics in underserved areas throughout Illinois. Governor Quinn signed into law SB 1393 which establishes procedures for awarding grants to build public infrastructures to improve access to dental care for low income residents. $2 million to fund construction of dental clinics was included in the Capital Bill that became law on July 13, 2009." Let's see if they can get any dentists to work there.
