Kids needing braces is nothing new. Parents are never really surprised when they hear that their kids need braces, but the biggest problems aren’t always the need or the finances, it’s the scheduling. Getting their children in for the screenings, follow-ups, application appointments, and so on can be a significant pain. Not to mention the adjustment period a kid has to go through. So how is anyone expected to get this done?!
Dental insurance is one of those things that you try your best not to think about. It seems really important when you’re first choosing your plan, and then again once every six months or so. In the interim, you probably don’t even think about it!
