With all the talk about “healthcare reform”, it seems we hear precious little about DENTAL … why?
kpk02, you make an interesting point about oral health. ideally the scenario you illustrated would be the ideal and a parallel can be drawn as far as folks going to the doctor for quality checkups of their cholesterl and such. thanks for the food for thought

Most democrats have already lost their teeth. It’s from drinking cheap malt liquor and boxed wine.

  1. This is just a guess on my part but since medicare does not cover dental and in most states medicaid does not either I don’t think the new government plans will either.

  2. None of the plans cover dental, ears and eyes are covered for children. Please read the details of what’s being proposed. What is presented in the news is only one side.

  3. My health care coverage from work has always just included dental, so I guess I never have thought of it as a separate coverage option.

    However with teeth, proper care and a couple of cleaning visits would be enough for the majority of people. That’s a small cost even out of pocket, but more importantly it can keep dental care costs relatively cheap so those who do run into issues could have minimal costs if they have a plan.

  4. Harder to bite the hand of Big Brother that feeds us if this mess goes through.

    Some insurance does have dental, or you can get an additional policy as I did to cover dental. Shop around there are many out there. Med Life and United Concordia are two I know of.

  5. It won’t matter what is included or not if they pass government run healthcare. You will be waiting a year for services that require immediate attention and then they can decide as they do in other countries with this silly system that you are too old or you have bad habits and they won’t provide the healthcare to you.

  6. Dental health often affects general health and well being. An infection in the mouth can cause other very serious health complications. I think that doctors are simply not trained to understand that.

    But the available dental plans are not very useful. They are very expensive, have long waiting coverage before serious coverage kicks in, and favor cheaper methods like the use of mercury based amalgams rather than the newer plastic ones. People are still having the mercury based amalgams put into their mouths in the U.S. when some other countries have outlawed them.

    I think that the medical community and the public both have too limited a knowledge about these matters.

  7. Because dental treatment does not save many lives.

    First of all, too many people do not know that Obama wants to make insurance more available to all.

    Second, of course universal health-cover sucks. That is why we in Western Europe have it. We think, hmm, our healthcare system sucks. I know, lets keep it. I guess that is the same with Japan and Canada as well.

    FACT – the USA spends more on healthcare PER PERSON than any other nation on the planet.

    FACT – the US has higher death rates for kids aged under five than western European countries with universal health coverage.

    That means that a dead American four year old would have had a better chance of life if they were born in Canada, France, Cuba, Germany, Japan etc, all of which have universal health coverage.

  8. Very nice interview. It's always nice to hear validation from the band members that they intended you to hear what you heard. In my case, what I keep coming back to in this record is the fantastic interplay between the guitar and drums, so it was neat to hear Ian affirm that they wrote those pieces with an intentional ear for counterpoint. “Mounds of Ash” is definitely on my short list for best of year so far. Cheers.

  9. Dear Todsah, If I hear a phone ring ten minutes before closing, I specifically fight to answer that phone. If the first thing out of the persons mouth is not “I’m really sorry for calling so close to closing”, I will purposefully write down the wrong toppings. I will fight to deliver it so that I can shake the box. I take it out of the heating bag so that it’s cold when I get to your house. Then, when I get back, I will take your inevitable complaint call, posing as the manager, assuring you that it won’t happen again. And as long as your fat ass doesn’t force everyone in the store to stay late again, it won’t. Sincerely, Every food service employee ever.

  10. I teach high school in Louisiana and I see kids like Precious everyday. They come in many different races, incomes and from extremely abusive homes. Precious gives students and adults hope. That hope and the compassion of teachers and classmates, in many cases, is the only thing that keeps them going. If a character like Precious can make it, young people can believe that is possible to make it as well. Kudos to all who worked on Precious. This show is a godsend.

  11. Wayan Rendah skillfully creates this sculpture in suar wood. The horse in Bali is seen as a symbol of power and in many ways this piece was inspired by that belief. One can almost hear the galloping steps of the horse in transit and the sheer freedom that is felt in the presence of this wonderful work. This is an excellent piece for the study or for any lover of horses.

  12. Abhishek is reasonably good looking, has an impressive height, a great baritone voice…the only thing he lacks , you guessed it, acting. A care for the way he looks, yes, but more than that, acting. He has got a good body language, god timing..what he lacks is any kind of FIRE. He appears so casual. No fire in his eyes. When he speaks a line, it does not look like he MEANS IT. Not at all. Thee have ben wooden actors like Jeetendra, but they had charisma, style and a little more willingness to invest in the character compared AB jr. I like him immensely as a person and wish him all happiness. But si9nceely, I have no hope, none at all, that he can improve much as an actor. He can at best improve his box office performance by choosing films wisely.
