One out of three Americans didn’t visit the dentist in the last year.
This information comes from Gallup Well-Being. The rate was basically the same in the previous year and in 2008 as well. Women were more likely than men to go for a dental checkup, based on this study.
More than 178,000 Americans were interviewed for this study this time and more than 354,000 people were interviewed prior to the 2008 study. The focus was to determine what factors impacted whether or not someone visited the dentist.
It’s important for every person to visit the dentist at least once per year.
