How often do you visit the dentist?

Tooth decay is on the rise:
According to a National Health and Nutrition Survey, the amount of cavities have increased in the following ethnicity's: Mexican Americans approx. 35%, Black, Non Hispanic appox 25% and White, Non-Hispanic, 20% from 1999-2004.

7/10 people are either under insured or uninsured.
Currently offering affordable dental plans for $19.95 per household per month

I know, for me, going to the dentist can be a pain. I cannot stand someone else's hands in my mouth. My son does not like to go, either! What about you and your kids?

  • We go once a year for a cleaning and then if we need other things done we look into that. We dont have insurance, well dental, so we have to pay out of pocket for things. But we do go for once a year cleanings. Im weird about our mouths and hate bad breath so.......
