In Minnesota, where fluoridation is state-mandated, "Jodi Hager sees close up what limited care means: children from poor families with decay in every tooth and adults weary from driving two hours to a place that will take their state insurance."

Dentists are anti-dental therapists.

Dental therapists are being trained side-by-side with dentists to increase access to affordable dental care despite the lobbying efforts of organized dentistry against this excellent remedy. Dentists prefer to treat the water of low-income Minnesotans; not their teeth. And they don't want anyone else doing so either.
