    BENNINGTON -- Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders is holding a town meeting in Montpelier today as part of his effort to tackle what he has labeled a dental crisis.

    Sanders is planning to discuss the lack of affordable dental care available to many Vermonters and Americans today at Montpelier High School. In a telephone interview Friday, Sanders said the crisis is growing and leading to a variety of health issues for millions of people.

    "130 million Americans"

    "Bottom line is, dental care is extremely expensive. We have about 130 million Americans who have no dental insurance. We talk often about the fact that about 50 million Americans have no health insurance," he said.

    According to Sanders, a quarter of adults in the U.S. who are 65 or older have lost all of their teeth. "A lot of folks are going around with no teeth, with dentures," Sanders said.
