Fluoridation Fails Seniors
Florida is 78% fluoridated, Yet, "Nearly one-third of older adults have untreated tooth decay."
"The listing of dentists for basic dental
services (one to two cleanings per year, X-rays) in each plan may
include 20 dentists. But calling any listed provider reveals that
perhaps 10 percent accept adults. The rest serve only children. Frail,
impaired, under-educated and other seniors are not able to maneuver the
system to find out how to proceed."
