Is Champaign County Smiling Healthier?
Last year, AM 580 launched Smile Healthy!, a seven-month series of reports on the status of dental health in the county. The reports outlined what's available for people who may not be able to afford a dentist -- resources are out there, but many needs go unfilled. A lot has happened in the 15 months since the stories aired -- one agency discontinued, then reinstated its dental clinic, while another program for children of low-income families has expanded to serve more people. AM 580's Tom Rogers revisits the issue.
