In recognition of American Diabetes Month, online dental savings plan marketplace DentalPlans.com is raising awareness about the oral-systemic health link.
DentalPlans.com, which is part of Henry Schein One, is sharing information about affordable dental care options, including dental savings plans, to help people access oral healthcare that is essential to maintaining good overall health.
Currently, there are about 34 million people in the U.S. who have diabetes and another 8 million who have prediabetes. These patients are at greater risk of oral health problems but sometimes face barriers to care. By enrolling in savings plans, they can get discounts of up to 60% on dental services, according to DentalPlans.com.
