Keeping Dental Problems Out of the Emergency Room

Keeping Dental Problems Out of the Emergency Room.

We are in need of more community dental clinics across our nation. Corporate ADA has power and money to change the current dental care delivery system for the better if Americans would speak out against the American Dental Associations deceiving and pacifying public relations campaign for a better public image.

The American Dental Association’s lack of leadership, mismanagement, and decades of irreversible trends, some being history while others continue today; is the leading factor for unmet dental needs in our nation. These trends and policies include racial and gender discrimination, unnecessary extractions and placement of dentures as a treatment plan, mandated and excessive use of fluoride, the use of mercury in restorations and ADA policies which prevent Americans from receiving oral healthcare by suppressing qualified competitors that provide oral health services to those with disparities.

The American Dental Association works against its own vision and mission statement by suppressing competition that has been trained and educated in providing oral health care services to those that are unable to pay the high prices charged by dentist, leaving Americans without needed dental care.

The American Dental Association’s waste of time and money, spent on lobbying and ADA’s strong arm tactics against competitors such as denturists, dental health aide therapists, and independent practices of dental hygienists needs to change for better production in meeting the oral health needs of Americans.

 This wasted money could be used in further educating the professions ADA fights against in alleviating ADA’s bogus public safety concerns. Corporate ADA could take portions of the millions of dollars it uses for lobbying and fighting against its competitors and instead, send each state, grants to compensate dentists who except Medicaid recipients. The American Dental Association could provide grants for dental programs in community healthcare centers across America. This would greatly improve our Nations oral healthcare concerns and unmet dental needs.
