Private sector solutions offer hope for underserved dental patients

For most of my adult life, I was a public servant representing the interests of my neighbors in the Gulf coast region of Mississippi as a state senator, a highway commissioner and ultimately a member of the United States House of Representatives. Serving those years in public office was both an honor and a privilege.

Once I left Congress, like most Americans, I had to enter the private sector and continue to earn a living to support my family. To be honest, I had a lot of things to learn about running a business.
