A Surprising Number of Us Haven’t Seen a Dentist in Years
If you’ve skipped a few dentist visits during covid, you’re not alone.
But this goes back a lot further than that: A new poll found close to one in four Americans haven’t seen a dentist in over FIVE YEARS. And for some of those people, it’s closer to ten.
22% of us haven’t been to a dentist in at least five years, including 7% who said more than ten . . . and 2% who’ve NEVER gone.
You’re supposed to go twice a year, but it sounds like most people don’t. Only a third of us have seen a dentist in the past six months.
