ADA: Dental care should be on candidates' agenda
Updated: 10/22/2008 10:00:35 AM

ADA: Dental care should be on candidates The inability of many Americans to afford dental care has not been adequately addressed by either of the two major candidates for president, the American Dental Association has said.

Although both Barack Obama and John McCain have spoken about their plans to address healthcare, neither has specifically discussed the high cost of dental insurance, the ADA told the San Antonio Express-News.

"We just want to make sure that when healthcare is discussed, that people understand that dentistry is part of overall good health," president of the ADA Dr Mark Feldman explained.

The group emphasized that low-income families are among those who suffer the most regarding access to affordable dental care.

As always, the association promoted preventive care - such as regular checkups - as a way to prevent more serious and more expensive problems in the future.

"One of our jobs is to make people understand that it's penny-wise and pound-foolish to give up on getting … preventive care," commented William Prentice of the ADA.

Those who are committed to maintaining their dental health may be interested in discount dental plans, which can help people save between 10 and 60 percent on most dental procedures.
