It’s time for Medicare to cover dental.

I understand how important oral health is to overall health. I know the link to heart disease, to diabetes and to strokes. I know we pay into Medicare our entire working lives. That’s why I believe Medicare should cover every part of our body, including our mouths.
Count me among those willing to tell Congress the time has come: Medicare should include dental coverage, an approach that could actually save money by preventing more expensive health issues later on.

Signed. I've always thought it's so bizarre when dental isn't covered (be it medicare or any other plan). It's like if they said your fingers and toes aren't covered. Though most people need dental work much more often than having an injured toe or finger.
