The Cost of Dentistry-A Different Perspective

Having worked in the dental benefit industry for 23 years, one of the most common reasons I've encountered for people to avoid seeing a dentist is the expense. Let's face it, dentistry is costly, and the cost just keeps rising. Well, I came across a website that offers some dental trivia facts and it really put things into perspective with regard to affordability.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I did!


*The average amount of money spent each year on DENTISTRY is $50 Billion.

Now, compare that to:

*The average amount of money spent on PET FOOD each year, which is also $50 Billion!

*The average amount of money spent each year on HAIR CARE - $100 Billion!

*The average spent on legal GAMBLING each year - a staggering $300 Billion!!!

It would seem that we really have no excuse to put off a visit to the dentist, based on these facts!

Keep Smiling!
