Discount dental plans exist to help the many Americans that lack access to affordable oral care. There are millions of U.S. residents without dental insurance, and many programs that once offered free dental care are no longer able to do so.
For example, The Ardmoreite, an Oklahoma news source, recently reported on how Dentist for the Disabled and Elderly in Need of Treatment, commonly referred to as D-Dent, is no longer able to give free dental care to the disabled and elderly population Oklahoma. This is after a 2010 decision by the Oklahoma State Department of Health to cut the program's funding completely.
"Oral health is a big problem here in Oklahoma, and we’ve gone two years without funding," said Shirley Harris, executive director of D-Dent, quoted by the news source.
According to a 2010 article in U.S. News and World Report, 45 million Americans had no dental insurance in 2008. This underscores the importance of discount dental plans, which can help individuals without insurance gain access to the oral care they need and deserve.
