Sacramento Bee Editor: Fresh look sees flaws in kids' dental plans

Last Sunday's lead story in The Bee carried a byline familiar to longtime readers, that of Jocelyn Wiener. That familiar name, though, came to you through a new form of collaborative journalism. Jocelyn left almost four years ago to travel and live in other parts of the world. When she came home to California she began freelancing. She wrote Sunday's investigation into Sacramento County's managed care system that delivers dental care to poor children, reporting that it "has consistently produced one of California's worst records for care."
