December 22, 2006, Newsletter Issue #43: Not All Dental Plans Cover Orthodontics

Tip of the Week

Cameron Diaz, Brandi, and Tom Cruise are just three celebrities that have used dental braces to straighten up their smiles, and they are far from alone. According to the American Association of Orthodontists, about 75% of Americans could benefit from orthodontic treatment, including braces.

If you have a child, the American Association of Orthodontists recommends that you have your child seen by an orthodontist for evaluation by age 7, which means that you better make sure that your dental insurance covers orthodontic treatment for them! If not, you should consider purchasing a supplementary dental health plan for your family, as the cost of braces or other orthodontic treatment is pretty unpalatable without a dental health plan that covers them.
