A Personal Story: Savings Wiped Out – Kate, South Strafford

Kate, 39, is married with two children and living in South Strafford, Vermont. She takes her children to get their teeth cleaned twice a year, she goes once a year, and her husband goes more often: “He’s spent a lot of time at the dentist in the past few years.” Although the kids have dental insurance through Dr. Dynasaur, Kate and her husband pay for their care out of pocket. Kate’s husband had to have a lot of dental work done over the past three years: “It’s a hit. All his root canal stuff was probably a couple thousand dollars. But I feel like if we’d been paying dental insurance for ten years we would have paid that.” She and her husband paid for his dental work from their savings: “It wipes out the savings, and then we don’t fix the barn.”
