Local dental therapists featured on PBS

by Chris Ho on November 15, 2011

Part 2  of the NewHour’s look at dental access and possible solutions focused on a clinic in Toksook Bay, Alaska that makes use of dental technicians and the debate over that model.  The NewsHour’s website, http://newshour.pbs.org/health  has the story of a  42-year-old mother of three from Bethel who  quit her job of 19 years and cashed out her retirement savings to be able to afford the full-scale dental overhaul necessary to reverse her lifelong struggle with tooth decay.
