Posted on June 21, 2012
Dollars and Dentists, a joint investigation by FRONTLINE® and the Center for Public Integrity, examines the nation’s ruptured dental-care system, and some solutions to fix it. The film airs Tuesday, June 26, on PBS.
The film explains how many people don’t have dental insurance and can’t afford steep out-of-pocket costs for care. It cites research from the Kaiser Family Foundation, which highlights the dire state of America’s dental-care system.
