I think everyone is entitled to dental health care.

I have just paid $795 for a partial plate-after several visits it still doesn't fit-I was just told that it had to be made all over again-I need these teeth for proper chewing of my food-I can only hope that this does not mean more money-I'm a senior.

Dental diseases make you feel crumby and they do really bad things to your future.

There are people in my own family who hae not seen a dentist in years. Their teeth are rotting and they are at risk for serious consequences. I hope and pray that there is an answer to this crisis. I saw the Frontline report and it was very scary. It has cost me a fortune - even with dental insurance - to take care of my own teeth. Thank God, I could afford it even if I had to pay it out over two years.

This is an important public awareness issue that should be addressed and not put to rest until every American gets the right for medical and dental insurance.
