Maryland was named the top performing state for children’s dental care, according to a recent report card among the 50 states on children’s dental health.
Maryland was the lone state to meet or go beyond seven of the eight total benchmarks set forth by Pew Center of States. Officials in Maryland said they would maintain this high level of dental performance for the children of Maryland.
This kind of dental treatment in Maryland may stem from the death of a 12-year-old boy, Deamonte Driver, four years ago. The child died from an untreated toothache.
