Tonight (June 26, 2012) at 10 p.m. ET, PBS network's FRONTLINE will feature an investigative dive into dental health care in America. The show, "Dollars and Dentists", will explore the importance of dental health and why it seems so out of reach for many people.
FRONTLINE is also giving folks a chance to ask questions and make comments about the report. You can find out more and get a direct link to the live chat HERE .
We hope you'll be able to watch the show and take part in the discussion about it. And, be sure to come back here to pose your own dental health questions to our board experts.
This looks really interesting - I still don't understand why dental health is placed in such a different category from "medical" health with respect to insurance and the provider-patient relationship. Thanks for letting us know about this!
Thanks for your Reply!
