To the Editor,

Your article on Saint Basil’s Free People’s Clinic was an excellent one [“Medical Miracles,” September 19]. Robert McClory captured the spirit of our clinic and our volunteers very well.

One cavil, however–the number of adult medicaid recipients without access to routine dental care is 500,000, not 50,000, as the article stated. This is truly a shameful situation in our wealthy state with its budget surplus of 800 million dollars.
