June 9, 2006, Newsletter Issue #19: Dental Insurance May Not Be Cost-effective

Tip of the Week

All the thick steaks, candy, and soft drinks you consume can take a heavy toll on your teeth. As it is, at some point most people need to have some dental work done to keep their chewers pain-free and strong enough to bite through the toughest foods.

Traditional dental insurance policies are generally considered to be the best way to pay for these inevitable dental expenses, but may not be cost-effective if youíre paying the monthly premium yourself rather than having it provided for you by your employer. Even the most affordable dental insurance policies might require you to pay large deductibles before covering the cost of more expensive treatments.

If you canít afford the relatively high costs of dental insurance, you should look into discount dental plans as an alternative. Their membership fees are generally much less than those associated with traditional dental insurance and they do not require you to pay a deductible for any procedure.
