The Truth About Dental Care.
I had the privilege of growing up in a household with two working parents; both of whom had great insurance, including dental. That being the case; they were able to help me and my sister secure braces, and eventually, retainers, to give us that desirable straight smile which; once you think about it, is very much an indication of wealth.
If you had issues with your teeth, and your family had the money to fix them, you’d come out of the dentist looking, and feeling, like a different person. But the truth is: not everyone has that luxury. I’m sure there are thousands of Americans that wish they could make a dentist appointment; regardless of the extent of work needed. This, of course; becomes a much larger conversation about poverty and the state of healthcare — which if it were up to Republicans, would cost upwards of 24 million people their coverage.
