Ruppersberger to Welcome Jobs, Affordable Care for Families at New Dental Office in Brooklyn Park
(Timonium, MD) – Congressman C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger (D-MD) on Monday will help officially open a new dental office in Brooklyn Park that aims to provide Anne Arundel County residents with access to first-rate dental care, as well as to promote awareness of the importance of dental hygiene. The kid-friendly Kool Smiles office in Brooklyn Park welcomes military families using the TRICARE dental program, families who are part of Maryland’s Healthy Smiles Dental Program and a wide range of private insurance plans.
Congressman Ruppersberger will speak about the need to expand access to dental care in underserved communities to reduce our nation’s overall healthcare costs. Preventable dental conditions are the primary reason for more than 830,000 emergency room visits a year.
