Health is a big problem in Oklahoma. According to a study published in the new England Journal Of Medicine, Oklahoma ranks as the state facing the most challenged in meeting the health care needs of its citizens in the next few years. Our state doesn't have enough doctors to serve the additional 500,000 patients who will be newly-insured through Medicaid or private insurance by the year 2014. The dilemma caused by lack of doctors is expected to be especially acute in rural Oklahoma. The shortage of doctors isn't the only health care issue facing rural Oklahoma. Dentists for the disabled and elderly in need of treatment, or d-dent as it's commonly known, has been providing free dental care for more than a quarter of a century. Now that service is threatened by a lack of state funding. We with state impact correspondent Logan Layden about the work of D-Dent, and how the loss of funding is putting many Oklahomans' oral health at risk.
