Sorry to hear that L. Glad you are able to get some of the help you need, but it’s unfortunate that you are unable to get help with such an important aspect of your health.
Medicaid expansion helps ensure all adults who need it are covered. Some states even offer dental to adults. Dental care is just as important as taking care of any other part of your body. We as a country need to push states like Texas who don’t provide dental and didn’t expand Medicaid to look beyond costs and think about the value of having a healthy happy population.
