KQED Radio

Young people who don’t get the routine dental care they need find themselves at a disadvantage, studies have shown: not just in overall health but also in school performance. Now a study from the Pew Charitable Trusts finds that California is among the 10 states where low-income children are least likely to receive dental care. Almost 60 percent of children with Medi-Cal did not receive any dental care in 2011, said co-author Jane Koppelman.
