Massachusetts has always been an historically vital part of the country. After all, this is where much of American history began, from the landing of the Pilgrims to the focus point of the American Revolution. This state was also the first in the union to mandate health insurance for its citizens. In this light it should be no surprise that residents of Massachusetts have better than average access to dental care as well. The Office of Oral Health is responsible for supplying high-risk communities with fluoride tablets. In addition, Head Start students are provided with free dental screenings through The Massachusetts Dental Society, Delta Dental and Tufts Mobile Dental Program.
While there may be some similarities, it is important to remember that these plans are not considered dental insurance.
