Sacramento Bee

The state’s Medi-Cal chief, under pressure to improve dental care for Sacramento’s poor children, pledged this week to implement changes so kids won’t have to wait months to receive treatment for painful, rotted or broken teeth.

In response to concerns raised by Senate President Pro Tem Darrell Steinberg, D-Sacramento, Toby Douglas outlined the steps that the state Department of Health Care Services will take to ensure that the more than 110,000 Sacramento County children with Medi-Cal get “high quality and timely” dental care.
