Toothaches a headache for Florida EDs
from The News-Press
Hospital EDs can't fix dental problems, but they are increasingly the medical destination for the state's under-insured, a new study finds. More than 139,000 Floridians with toothaches, oral sores, cavities and related complaints sought out the emergency departments in 2012, a 6.4 percent increase over the previous year, according to the Florida Public Health Institute. The price: about $141 million.
