A new report sheds light on the state of children's dental care in America. The report by "the Pew Center on the States" shows that one in five children in the U.S. go without dental care every year. It also says that two-thirds of states do "not" have proper policies in place to ensure dental health care and access.
Pew rated states on a scale of "A" to "F". Only six states received an "A," including Connecticut, Iowa, Maryland, New Mexico, Rhode Island and South Carolina. New Jersey ranked the lowest.
