State Report Slams Denti-Cal
capital public radio

A California oversight board is calling the state dental program for low-income people “baffling, frustrating,” and “harmful.”

The Little Hoover Commission writes in a report released Friday that outdated regulations and bureaucracy create “high levels of havoc” for the 13 million Californians enrolled in Denti-Cal.

The report finds few dentists participate in Denti-Cal, and patients have trouble visiting the ones who do.
