Obama’s Health Plan silent on Dental care - Mexican Dentists are Dancing in the Streets

Mexican Dentists are Dancing in the Streets Over Obama’s Health PlanSeptember 30, 2010 (Washington Bangla Radio / Free-Press-Release.com) -- Mexican Dentists Should Be Dancing In The Streets Over Obama’s Health Plan.
Obama’s Health Care Plan doesn’t make dental care more affordable for the average person in the US. Not much has been said in the press about this. Bottom line: It will be business as usual for American dentists. The Obama plan calls for millions of dollars in oral hygiene education, fluoridation and federal subsidies for dental schools. But, millions of uninsured AND insured Americans will still be unable to afford expensive dental treatments such as multiple root canals, crowns, veneers, implants, cosmetic dental makeovers etc.
