Hubby and I have decided to get a dental insurance for the family. Kuya Bogs milk teeth are loose and since they are still strong teeth and has not shown any cavities, it has to give way to the new set of teeth. We also have Job who will soon lose his baby teeth and a trip to the dentist is so costly here!
We have looked into the Blue Cross stand-alone dental insurance for families which will cost us about $86 for month and will cover at least $500 for dental procedures. We know that there will be frequent visits to the dentist because of Kuya Bogs’ milk teeth and it will be very expensive for just a visit alone. It is the exact opposite of our privilege back in our homeland where our dentist’s visits and procedures are FREE! Thanks to hubby’s cousins who are dentists, but here, we have to pay more than a hundred bucks! Whew!
But a dental insurance is really important since we have growing kids (and I have problem teeth too). So even if we shell out about $90 per month for our dental insurance, it will still be worth it. By next week, we will send out our application form for the dental insurance and hopefully get approved and will be able to save a lot in our future dentist visits.
