There's something fundamentally wrong with a health care system that encourages the uninsured to forego preventive medicine then treat hospital ER's as their primary care providers.

And in case SP isn't looking, this is coming from conservatives, not liberals. My son has been off our health insurance for two years so we sprung for a trip to our dentist this week to find out what's the matter. $165 for a cleaning to also let me know that he needs $1,600 in wisdom tooth removal and cavities.

Now my dentist of 15 years gave us a pre-filled cost sheet he uses, no discounts for five people coming to him for those years. I should say our ex-dentist.

Look it up. There is nothing that creates poor health faster than bad teeth. We're lucky enough to have the resources to shop around or even go to the Dental College for DS. What's everyone else to do?

Not sure I'm interpreting Phil right, but I think it's time this issue has a reasonable national discussion.
