Recent columns in newspapers across the state specify numerous reasons why funding dental care is a smart investment for the state. Preventing dental disease saves money, improves health and keeps people away from expensive ER and hospital care. It is difficult for people to get a job if they are in pain or have obvious dental problems.
Read the columns and then send a message to legislators.
Restoring dental care is a wise decision and the right thing to do.
