Fluoridated USA - Caring about health

Caring about health
By GARY DEMUTH Salina Journal
Tracie Linzenmeyer was stuck with a mouthful of rotten teeth because she couldn't afford to have them pulled.

Medicaid would pay for the stay-at-home Salina mom to get her teeth cleaned, but because of the cost, it wouldn't pay for such dental services as root canals, crowns, deep-cleaning or tooth removal -- all of which Linzenmeyer needed.

"My teeth have gotten so bad that they have to be pulled, but I can't get them pulled because I can't afford it," she said during a recent visit to get her teeth deep cleaned at the Salina Family Healthcare Center dental clinic
