Maryland launches campaign to promote dental health

March 23rd, 2012 by WCBC Radio

A coalition formed after a 12-year-old boy from Prince George's County died from an untreated tooth infection will launch a healthy teeth campaign today aimed at families with children who can get free dental care through Medicaid. The Baltimore Sun reported the campaign, organized by the Maryland Dental Action Coalition, will be the first statewide awareness program focused on educating pregnant women and children up to 6-years-old.

The campaign, paid for with $1.2 million in federal money, will be outlined today at The National Dental Museum.
