The importance of having dental insurance

NADP SmartBrief | Dec 04, 2014

Oral health is an important consideration for families shopping for a health insurance plan during the Affordable Care Act's open enrollment period, writes Philip Wenk, CEO of Delta Dental of Tennessee. Although the Affordable Care Act does not require Americans to buy dental coverage, having coverage is an important factor in overall well-being. "Studies suggest that people with dental benefits are almost 50% more likely to visit the dentist every six months to get the care they need. If you have benefits, you are able to prevent dental problems or get treatment before a problem becomes more serious, and save money on your dental care costs," Wenk writes.
