LARGO, Md. (AP) _ Maryland officials are getting a mobile dental office to serve needy children in Prince George’s County.
The van will be named the Deamonte Driver Dental Project, after a 12-year-old county resident who lacked access to dental care and died last year from a tooth infection that spread to his brain.
Maryland’s secretary of health and mental hygiene, John Colmers, says the van will visit local schools and publicize the need for children to receive dental care.
The state gave the county $288,000 to buy the van.
