Faith Matters in Maine Update – February 15, 2016
Heard every Thursday on WHCF 88.5, Hodgdon/Houlton 93.7, Presque Isle 102.7; on WFST in Caribou at 5:20 pm and WTME in Lewiston/Auburn 780 and 1450 AM at 9:29 am and 1:29 pm M-F
I’m calling on our listeners to voice their support for a very important piece of legislation that is a proven, private-sector solution to a real need of some of Maine’s less fortunate citizens. I’m talking about LD 1514 – – the Dental Therapy bill.
LD 1514 allows Maine’s newly created dental therapists to fully maximize mobile clinics allowing them to offer much-needed dental care for the elderly, veterans, and impoverished children of rural Maine.
Unfortunately, LD 1514 is being opposed by many of Maine’s dentist even though this has been proven to be a safe and effective method to increase access to dental care here in the US and around the world.
