Nearly 200,000 dentists are listed on, and the dental care they provide is important to many patients’ overall good health, along with the benefits of the oral care they provide.

Research has linked the incidence of some types of heart disease and strokes with the presence of gum disease – and it is good self-care, along with regular dental visits, that may prevent more serious conditions. Other medical problems that dentists may detect early include osteoporosis and diabetes.

Proper dental care is especially important for children. Tooth decay is more prevalent in children than asthma, according to one research study, but pediatric dental care also includes teaching about proper nutrition and dental hygiene while building lifelong habits. The implementation of the Affordable Care Act is expected to improve access to insured pediatric dental care.

Like vision care, dental coverage often is sold separately by companies like Delta Dental and Cigna.
