There is a major children's dental crisis currently going on in this country. Millions of children are not going to the dentist because their parents can't find affordable dental coverage. That is a shame because basic periodic checkups, cleanings, flouride applications, and sealants can prevent early tooth decay in children. Early checkups and education programs for both parents and children is the best way of eradicating tooth decay and gum disease in children.
As of January 1, 2014, most Americans will be required to have dental coverage for their children. The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is charged with defining what the benefit plans look like, and what the age limit will be, but has not yet done so. Denali Dental and IHC Holding Group have recommended a scientifically supported plan design to (HHS) that is intended to do the most good for the most number of kids.
Denali Dental is a benefit rich dental insurance program which includes three cleanings per year which is crucially important during the early years of childhood. The more your child see's the dentist the better you will be able to avoid large dental bill down the road. Another huge reason to choose Denali Dental is for the children's orthodontic benefit which is included in the Aetna PPO version of the plan. Orthodontia is expensive and Denali Dental pays out more than other plans because of its high annual maximums.

**Denali Dental is not a child only dental plan. This plan requires the main applicant to be at least 18 years of age to be eligible for coverage. Minor children between the ages of 0 and 17 may apply for coverage, as long as a parent or legal guardian is enrolling in the dental plan.
