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.

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.
