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.

They Need to raise dental coverage period! On all plans. It's been the same for over 15 years...REALLY!

My granddaughter is 6 years old and is on United Health Care, Kid Med through Medicaid. Her Mother works but doesn't have health or dental care. She needs to go to the dentist, but we can not find a dentist that will accept a 6 yr old for Kid Med...they stop taking kids at age 4. Now, does that make sense to ANYONE? Most dental problems for children don't start until after age 4 and that's the cutoff age! Someone please explain this!

Thank you so much for this petition. I have wondered for quite awhile what is going on with the lack of dental care in this country. I see so many people missing teeth.

I used to have a denist who would take payment plans and then stopped doing it even when I never missed a payment and always paid my bill off.

I have to laugh when I think about teeth in red states. It's even hard to find a date with all their front teeth in Republican areas of Colorado.

just like medical care, dental has been corrupted as a result of capitalism. Its all about the money, not the human life in our country. Only certain classes of individuals have access to quality healthcare and they are a minority.

Like all our Congress men and women, the ones who decide what the rest of us get. By the way, taxpayer dollars pay for their care. Insane!

The dentist told me, "It will cost you $14,000 for me to fix your teeth." I'm glad he had the training he did--but I paid that much for a graduate degree and can't find work--or get my teeth fixed at those prices.

We are in the same boat. Masters Degrees, deboted pur lives snd careers to helping other people, but my husband has painful, horrible teeth. Yhough he works with the public, he is too embsrassed to smile. It is not fair that good Americsns can't afford to get thrir teeth fixed.

Why don't we have access to dental care via insurance as we do medical care?
