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.
