Doctors and dentists team up to boost dental care

Doctors and dentists team up to boost dental care Increasingly, physicians and dentists are forming alliances to help battle tooth decay and protect children's dental health.

A report on describes how the most recent national summit of the American Academy of Pediatrics focused on how to improve children's dental care.

One of the main obstacles faced by those in the healthcare industry is how to deliver adequate dental care to children who lack dental insurance or poor families who cannot afford to pay for dental checkups or other procedures.

Dr Joel Berg of the University of Washington told the news provider that the tragedy of tooth decay is that it is a preventable disease - with proper dental hygiene - but that often it is not caught until it is too late.

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children have their initial dental checkup by their first birthday.

Families who are searching for ways to save money on dental care may want to consider discount dental plans. These plans, an alternative to dental insurance, provide discounts of 10 to 60 percent on most dental procedures with participating dentists.
