Dental InsuranceAccording to an NADP Consumer Survey, most consumers claim to be aware of the connection between dental health and overall health, but those with dental benefits or access to affordable dental care are 28% more likely to rate their oral health as excellent or very good.

Those without dental benefitsdental insurance. or discount dental plans – were 2.5 times less likely to visit the dentist than those with dental benefits.

Among people with periodontal disease, which has been linked to numerous health complications, including heart disease, 48% of those without dental benefits had not received treatment.

"Our survey found that people with dental benefits were more likely to have a regular dentist, visit the dentist more frequently, and receive dental treatment than those without,” says Evelyn F. Ireland, NADP Executive Director. “This included children's dental visits. When parents don't have dental benefits, the number of kids seeing a dentist twice a year drops by over 20%."

More than 6,000 consumers responded to the NADP Consumer Survey.
