Dallas, TX (PRWEB) October 22, 2005
Results of an independent poll conducted on-line at a new website which provides low cost dental plans and health insurance alternatives -- http://www.USPowerBrokersTeam.com/special.html -- indicate many Americans are going without regular visits to their dentist for routine dental check-ups.
With 9667 participating in the poll, more than 70%  said the single biggest obstacle which lead to delays in making routine appointments was the lack of a dental plan and the high cost of dental care, and 19% (1863) blame limits associated with dental insurance as the number two reason why they do not regularly see their dentist.
Mack Marconi, an independent health benefits broker in Dallas, TX, and author of the free eBook, "An Insiders Guide to Quickly and Easily Slashing Your Health Insurance Costs by 50% to 70% and Saving Thousands of Dollars on Your Healthcare...” said the results may surprise some people, but “it doesn’t really come as a surprise to me that such a huge number of the people who participated in this poll cited high cost as the biggest problem they face with their dental care.”
Most people just don't have dental insurance, and those who do, face a long list of limitations and / or exclusions, and that means they're paying full price when they visit the dentist.
"But," he continued, "It doesn't have to be that way nowadays. There really is a better way, and it's called Consumer Driven Health Care benefits or CDHC for short. It's very affordable, and these insurance alternatives will flat out save Americans thousands of dollars."
And just as important is the fact that regular dental check-ups play a significant role in one's overall health. From early detection of gum disease and certain cancers, to the reduction of headaches, sleep disorders and risks linked with heart disease, the association between overall wellness and routine dental care is a major factor in preventative medicine.
Marconi added, "Each year more than 2 million workdays and school days are lost because of oral health problems, many of which could have been prevented all together by routine dental exams if more Americans were covered through an affordable CDHC dental plan available to individuals, families and businesses nationwide."
During National Dental Hygiene Month, we encourage everyone to become educated about dental health and schedule a regular dental check-up to help prevent health problems before they begin.
The importance of preventative care has become increasingly affordable to all Americans as CDHC dental plans are easily available on-line as well as through independent health benefits brokers across the country.
And taking the lead so more people can get in to see the dentist is companies like AmeriPlanUSA(R) who is offering special half price CDHC benefits plans all this month, making it affordable for anyone to obtain a quality dental plan for themselves, their family or their employees, and start a regular routine of visiting their dentist.
Marconi finished by saying, "We recognize people are looking for affordable options as they are forced to deal with increasing health care costs, and Consumer Driven Health Care benefits
plans provide a customized solution which allows you, the consumer, total control over your health and dental benefits for pennies a day."
