Reading, Writing, and...Rinsing

This article is more than 12 years old.

Elementary students in some Massachusetts schools are learning the "three R's" — reading, writing and rinsing.

They're part of a new school-based dentistry program that some see as a response to problems of access to dental care. WBUR's Health and Science reporter Allan Coukell reports.

This program aired on December 21, 2006. The audio for this program is not available.
