:DentalPlans Launches Online Consumer Dental Information Center

New Section Designed to Educate Consumers on Importance of Oral Health

PLANTATION, FL--(Marketwired - March 10, 2015) - Ever wonder what to do when a tooth gets knocked out? Or how to take care of your teething toddler? How about how to finance emergency dental care? :DentalPlans aims to help solve these and other oral health concerns.

:DentalPlans' new Dental Information Center contains articles and videos addressing the most critical and common dental and oral health issues. Topics covered range from stained teeth, dry mouth, life with dentures, teething troubles, snoring and sleep apnea to advice on how to finance necessary dental care.

The Information Center will also have a comprehensive "How To" section, with articles on how to prevent tooth decay, maintain good oral health, clean teeth with braces, and many other relevant topics.

":DentalPlans is dedicated to educating the public about prevention and the essential role that oral health plays in overall health and well-being," said Bill Chase, vice president of marketing for :DentalPlans. "This is just one way that we can bring interesting and timely information to our members, and in partnership with their dental care provider, help families make confident, informed decisions about their oral health care."

All of the content featured in :DentalPlans' Dental Information Center is written by partnering with Dear Doctor -- the nation's premier content provider for oral health education.
