Every year, health insurance companies pay millions for emergency room visits for complications caused by preventable dental disease, as simple as gum disease.  Periodontal disease is also a major contributor to heart disease, so prevention and earlier treatment could mean less major heart disease! Let's join together to redirect this money by getting our government to ensure health insurance will cover exams, cleanings, x-rays, and sealants at the dentist.  DENTAL HEALTH IS MEDICAL!!!  Oral germs ending up around our heart is a medical/general health problem! By being able to care for the mouth, the gateway to the body, our overall health will be improved, problems will be diagnosed earlier, and lives even saved.
