For more than a century, dentistry and medicine have been two of the noblest professions. Both have been blessed with great respect in our communities and the honor of treating people to cure and prevent disease.
Nearly 70% of physicians believe that health insurance protocols are having a crippling effect on their practicies. Almost 95% say that these restrictions have a negative impact on their ability to properly treat patients. Patients have become accustomed to medical insurance paying most – if not all – of their physician’s bill. These same people become perplexed that dental insurance never does, except for preventive procedures and puts severe limits when it comes to substantial treatment. This system puts cost controls on dental services because it puts treatment decisions where they belong – between the patient and the doctor.
