Study Shows Many Dental Insurances Wasted


Brea, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/14/2014 -- According to the new study conducted at the University of Maryland School for Dentistry, people who own dental insurance are not using it when necessary. This only means that people do not thoroughly understand the importance of dental health, which leads to poor over-all wellness.

One of the lead authors, Richard J. Manski, who is also a professor at the University of Maryland School for Dentistry, said that the study, which was published in the American Journal of Public Health, can be a baseline in promoting the importance of dental care to the public. Together with his research team, they gathered people who own and do not own dental insurance. The analysis confirms that people who own dental insurance do not use it for dental care, and one of the factors affecting it was age. Also, the reducing employment and the over-all status of the economy play an important role on people seeking dental care.

The study also confirms of the possibility of changes to one’s attitude on health. Creating a positive impact on the way a person sees the importance of dental care can make a big difference.

Good thing, this is now being implemented by many dentists who take advantage of the power of internet to create an awareness of the importance of dental care. One of which is Grant A. Burdick, a famous dentist in La Habra and Brea.

With his efforts to reach out to many people, he established a website called that focuses on delivering a positive impact to dental care. Such impact is done by means of publishing different blogs to keep people well-informed about the causes of different dental problems. Also, the website provides comprehensive information about the different services offered in their dental clinic.
