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., for more info!

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

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?
