La Opinion: Piden que gobernador restaure cobertura completa de Denti-Cal (5/24/2017) Justice in Aging’s Amber Christ is quoted in this article regarding decreased Denti-Cal funding in California. The program, which covers about one-third of adults in California, suffered deep cuts amid a fiscal deficit in 2009. Many treatments required by adults are not covered. “It only includes complete dentures that really encourage providers to pull all the teeth out of someone’s mouth, even those teeth that are healthy, so that people can have the benefits that dentures cover,” said Amber Christ of Justice in Aging.
