Not only in dental, but all health care!

I have had an infected tooth for a long time because my dentist says the health insurance should cover it and the doctor says the dental insurance should cover it and NEITHER DOES! STOP THIS NONSENSE NOW PLEASE.

I do not have dental insurance or make enough to pay it myself and I do need dental work done.

My own teeth have mostly rotted out because I can not afford the 8500.00 the dentist wants to fix them. I am disable and only make 1200.00 a month. I can't even afford health care and can not get Medicare till 2014. Medicaid says I make too much in Social Security to qualify. But we keep allowing illegal to get free health care. I have worked and paid taxes over 45 years though.

I would definitely sign this petition however it does not indicate who is going to pay for this additional coverage. The tragic death of that young man is very sad and heartbreaking.

Greed runs the country now, eveyone rich or poor would help each other years ago, we have become greedy and care only for ourselves.

Even though some of us have health insurance (BC/BS govn't plan) plus an additional FEDVIP plan, dental care is a luxury.

Agree with Anita. Even with dental care it costs a fortune. Last time I went to the dentist I was told I needed atleast a couple of hundred $ up front. How do people with large families afford this?

Back in 2009 I went through breast cancer and even with health insurance I'm still paying off bills. During the years off breast cancer I lost my job that payed this insurance.

Also Mitt Romney wanted this in his state until his now running for office then, he changes his mind. This is what Republicans do, say anything to win and only raise taxes for the poor and praise the rich with no taxes at all.

Let’s pressure lawmakers to pass this important measure passed to ensure that all Americans have access to affordable dental care.
