Medical and Dental Care@100%: How we ensure all county residents can access affordable medical and dental care
Special Edition: Excerpt from 100% Community by Katherine Ortega Courtney, PhD and Dominic Cappello

Medical and Dental Care@100% details how county leaders can collaborate to ensure that a countywide system of medical and dental care is created from existing and new public and private care programs to meet the needs of all county residents.
