Officials stress need for pediatric dental care
Death by tooth decay, it's the story of 12-year-old Deamonte Driver whose family lost Medicaid coverage, and no dentist would help him. The infection spread to his brain. "The nurses called and said Monte is not responding; you need to get up there. And by the time I got up there, he was already gone," said Elise Driver in a 2007 interview. His death in 2007 struck a chord with the University of Maryland Dental School.
