Dental health is public health
Dental healthcare is critical — but right now it's also unaffordable. There is no reason that dental should not be publicly funded. Poor dental hygiene can lead to serious chronic disease and illness. Include dental in Medicare now.
Why is this important?
Poor oral hygiene can lead to dental cavities and gum disease, and has also been linked to heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. Healthcare is a right, not a privilege. Access to dental care should not depend on your bank account. Sign this petition for equitable access to dental care.
