Bill to improve dental services for Sacramento County’s poor children on governor’s desk
Sacramento Bee

Some low-income children in Sacramento County who have tried but failed to get dental care would have an escape route under a bill awaiting action by the governor.

Currently, dental managed care is mandatory for the roughly 100,000 Sacramento County children on Medi-Cal. But the program has one of the state’s worst access records and has left many children waiting months for treatment for painful, rotted or broken teeth.
