Dentist shortage means many live in pain:

"Monique McMillian knows what it's like to have teeth that hurt. She is 9 and lives in Rumford, in western Maine. She had to have four teeth pulled. They were black with decay. Whenever she ate, it hurt. She stopped brushing because it was too painful."

Rumford, Maine, is naturally fluoridated at 1.2 part per million (Children Need Dentists NOT Fluoride)
