Folks rally at the State House for lawmakers to support expanded dental care

A few dozen folks rallied at the State House Thursday advocating for a bill that would give more Mainers access to dental care.

It would allow people who make under $17,000 a year to get basic dental prevention and treatment.

The only Medicaid dental benefit for adults in Maine is limited emergency care.

Supporters say lack of access negatively affects their lives.
