Kansas Health Foundation launches dental campaign
from The Wichita Eagle
Alice Hart of Wichita, Kan., has no dental insurance. When one of her teeth started crumbling, her dentist wanted to do a root canal and then put a crown on the tooth, for $2,000. Hart would have to pay all of it, which she couldn't do. A friend told her about the Advanced Education in General Dentistry program at Wichita State University. It offers advanced training for dental-school graduates and reduced-cost services to patients. Hart decided to have her tooth pulled there. It cost her about $200 for cleaning, X-rays and the extraction.
