If you’re searching for a dentist anywhere besides Delaware, head to our homepage click here.
Delaware is often proud of being considered the “first state.” Meaning that they were the first state to ratify the Constitution. However, where do they rank when it comes to
dental statistics? Well, we can admit that Delaware has a very unique situation when it comes to oral health. We have dedicated this page to teaching you a few things. First off, we want to make it very clear that we are here to help you find a 24 hour emergency dentist immediately. Of course, in order to do that we figured that it would be a good idea to teach you a little about the great state you live in. Also, we want to make sure you are prepared insurance wise before you step into your emergency clinic (more on that later.)
Let’s get started!
State Statistics In Delaware
As a general rule you would be right to assume that the more dentists that are in the region the better the overall oral health of a state is. However, Delaware only has 419 registered dentists within it’s borders. That’s not a lot when you compare it to a state like California where the total dentists is around 30,000. However, with it’s small amount of dentists, Delaware actually does a pretty darn good job of keeping it’s teeth clean. They rank above the national average in the following categories:
- People who keep their teeth clean by visiting a dentist in the past year
- People who have had to have all of their teeth removed (the percentage is low)
(Our research was done using statehealthfacts.org.)
Are You Prepared Insurance Wise?
It’s an age old question when it comes to walking out of the dentist.
How much did you pay?
Well, chances are that if you don’t have insurance you are going to be paying a pretty hefty fine. We don’t need to sit here and tell you that dental insurance can save you a ton of money. The fact of the matter is that you are most likely here because you have a dental emergency. Not having insurance can further add to the pain because dental emergencies aren’t always cheap (we do try to locate the cheapest emergency dentists but we are limited sometimes.)
Actually we are going to take a step back and commend you. Delaware is one of the best states that we have come across with regards to the percentage of uninsured. At only 11% they are well under the national average of 16%. Nevertheless, we want you to be prepared so if you don’t have dental insurance you may want to perk up because this next part is going to be important.
