Taking Action for Dental Health

Thinking about caring for your dental health? The Marconi Dental Plan can help.

The American Dental Association recently announced that they want dentists across the United States to take Action for Dental Health. Why is this necessary and what does it mean? Action is needed because literally millions of people in our country have untreated dental health problems that lead to serious complications. Action for Dental Health encourages dentists and communities to work together to solve these problems.

What About the Affordable Care Act?

While the Affordable Care Act does create some provisions for dental care, especially for children and the poor, since the law focuses primarily on medical insurance, and not dental insurance, millions of Americans are left without dental health coverage. As a result, people leave tooth decay and other complications untreated, until the pain sends them to an emergency room. By that time, teeth that could have been saved end up extracted and oral infections have spread throughout the body through the blood stream. Prevention of tooth decay and early treatment of gum disease and cavities are essential.

While we can still afford dental and vision through our employer (but not medical) this is good to know because so many people need options like this. When I signed up for a health plan through Covered California, I was surprised to learn that no dental plans would be included. It would seem logical that it should be though because good dental health leads to better overall health.

Myra, you are correct about the necessity of some sort of coverage for preventative dental care. The Affordable Care Act now mandates that in the State of California, kids up to the age of 19 have dental coverage. We will have to wait and see how that helps prevent some of these kids going to the ER due to toothaches and oral infections. Thanks for the comment.

Dental Care is very important! The Affordable Care Act is very limited and must cover a larger community and more dental procedures!
