Insurance covers medical but rarely dental patients/victims of violence/stress

Hello, I'm a DV advocate and have many clients that have TMJ. Bruxism. Gingivitis, broken or missing teeth from trauma.  Dental insurance rarely covers most of the treatment, exams, x-rays, appliances . This seems to be a problem with the coding and the care being called medical or dental. I am wondering if any of you reading this has encountered clients needing care by a dentist.  A nightguard  is one basic appliance that is too costly to pay out of pocket for most of my clients.

Thank you,

 

Dian
