Why does a simple thing like a root canal cost so much?
Imagine earning $800-$3,000 an hour...
Root canals have to be one of the dentist's highest profit margin treatments - it's pure labor by the dentist - takes about an hour, and US dentists get $800 - $3,000 vs. $450 from a dentist in Mexico.
Many countries require a year in public health care service from the doctors in return upon graduation thus enhancing the Public Option and helping keep a lid on the cost of Private Care reasonable via competition. The net result is that eventually, the country eliminates the ‘Doctor is God’ myth, bringing respect and compensation for the medical profession more in line with that of engineers, architects, business managers etc. The medical and dental professions are applied sciences – technical trades if you will, and the doctors need not be treated as or compensated like rock stars.
Dentists in Mexico should be dancing in the streets over Obama’s new health care reform bill, as the majority of the medical and dental treatments received by Americans in Mexico fall within the areas that will continue to be denied coverage by American insurers, Medicare, and Medicaid.
Obama Care does nothing to address the high cost of dental treatments...
The Health Care Reform plan like most dental insurance plans does nothing to address the high costs of dental treatments in the US. It allocates money for dental schools, equipment, computer record keeping systems, allows more low income onto the Medicaid program which essentially allows for extractions of bad teeth rather than restorations. It also allows the insurance companies to keep charging premiums while permitting one crown or root canal a year. Good job ADA and health care insurance company lobbyists!
