Rise of Dental Care
The steady rise of the cost of dental care has affected the majority of Americans. Some Americans without dental insurance haven't been to the dentist in 3 years while surgeons recommended twice a year visits. Statistics show that 77% of those without dental coverage have delayed regular dental care due to the cost. This has become a major issue because lack of oral care has been linked to diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. With as much as it costs to go to the dentist nowadays, some people are simply skipping out on their suggested biannual check-ups. As with any service, companies are inclined to provide an incentive to choosing their product. For example, Brighter.com has "pre-negotiated rates that is says are 20% to 60% lower than typical prices, says Winebaum." This is a glint of hope for customers who are looking for the best priced services in the economy today.
