Got an email from Senator Sanders about how dental care is fucked up and bullshit in this country. Which it is. I know we're not going to achieve my free health care for all option anytime in the near future, but we really should provide a, uh, public option for basic childhood dental care in this country. No cosmetics, no non-necessary orthodontics, but free clinic for kids to get basic necessary dental care.
More generally, as the money in dentistry is in more cosmetic dentistry it seems we've decided that dental care isn't really medical care. Well a lot of it is. People need their teefers and they need to be free of pain and serious infection.
