A Personal Story: Teeth are a Good Investment – Susan, Chelsea

Susan and her husband Phil and their family live in Chelsea, Vermont, and have had dental insurance through her teaching job for the past eighteen years. Although they’ve never had high incomes, Susan and Phil and their children always made sure to get regular dental care: “I’ve always felt like taking care of your teeth was a priority, even when we felt like we had no money.” The dental insurance they had paid for cleanings and most of the cost of the two crowns Susan had to have. One of the crowns was five years ago and the other was two years ago, and Susan was able to pay off what the insurance did not cover in two or three payments on a payment plan. Susan and Phil’s two children are both grown now and no longer covered on the family dental insurance plan. They both pay out-of-pocket for their cleanings, but still make sure to get their teeth cleaned at least once a year. “Our whole family has just put a really big emphasis on healthy teeth…it seems like a good investment.”
