A recent national poll by FORBA surveyed 210 parents of young children in households with annual incomes of $35,000 or less and the results highlighted the unfortunate choice many parents are currently facing.

While this poll highlights a very serious issue, what many faced with this decision fail to see though is that preventive dental care is usually far more affordable than emergency care or major procedures that result from neglected every day care or skipped checkups and cleanings.
Fortunately, there’s another option for families struggling to afford regular dental checkups and cleanings. offers families an alternative to dental insurance: discount dental plans. These dental care savings plans start at just $129.95 per year for families and they allow families to save 10% to 60% on most dental care procedures during their year of membership. Further, all new members get three additional months of membership free.
