Could you imagine if you had a dental emergency and the person you were trying to schedule a dental appointment with didn’t speak the same language as you?
According to the Hispanic Dental Association (HDA), language barriers have been identified as negatively affecting Hispanics’ pathway to health care. In addition, Hispanics have had the lowest levels of dental visits in the United States while twice as many Hispanic children are likely to have untreated dental caries as are non-Hispanic white children.
To remove some of these barriers and provide a path to oral health services withaffordable dental care for Hispanics, DentalPlans.com re-launched the Spanish-language version of its full-service site PlanesDentales.com.
The updated site features a fresh design and improved search tools for Hispanic individuals and families in the U.S. to easily find alternatives to dental insurance, locate a nearby dentist participating in discount dental plans and maintain their oral health.
