Houston, TX, October 11, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- OrthodonticAmerica has launched a new website to help consumers gain access to orthodontic insurance.
"So many Americans go without dental and orthodontic insurance each year. With so few Americans even having general health insurance, dental insurance falls by the wayside. That's why our new website can help educate people about the need for good dental insurance," says Karen Childress, owner of http://www.orthodontic-insurance.net/.
OrthodonticAmerica's new site has several articles about the entire orthodontic health experience. Prospective patients can learn about finding an orthodontist and choosing quality orthodontic insurance coverage.
"A study done by Business Week on November 9, 2008 showed that the average dental insurance policy stopped paying at $1,500. With braces costing over $5,000 in many cases, we feel like patients are often surprised by the total cost," said Childress.
Childress says they are busy adding dental and health plan information to site: "We are currently exploring all the options health-care consumers have access to. When we are done, our site will be the top destination for vetted dental insurance information."
Plans call for the ability for visitors to search local insurance providers, as well as an orthodontist search feature.
Childress also added "Dental health is simply too important to ignore."
