Guest view: Putting the bite on bad teeth - Utica, NY - The Observer-Dispatch

Putting the bite on bad teeth: "Hundreds of children face this painful reality [extensive tooth decay]across the Mohawk Valley. Since 1996, I’ve been treating 200 to 300 Head Start children each year who had never seen a dentist before."

The Mohawk Water Authority fluoridates it's water and includes Utica. It's also mandatory that Head Start children get their teeth brushed daily.
