Fluoridation Fails Rhode Island

Rhode Island is 84% fluoridated, Yet, hundreds lined up — some even camped out — for the fourth annual Mission of Mercy free dental clinic, now in its fourth year.

This weekend, close to 1000 patients were seen for a variety of dental needs: infected or broken teeth, cavities; some to have their wisdom teeth removed.

"There's just such a huge gap between the haves and the have-nots," said Dr. Ken Rudman, a volunteer who has a practice in Warwick.
