Our Daughter Needs Braces

I've never had braces.  My husband has never had braces.  We had really hoped that our kids would not need braces.  Because "your child needs braces" is something that no parent ever wants to hear.  We all know that braces are expensive.  And from what I've heard from almost everyone I know ..... is that insurance very rarely covers them either.  After checking around with a couple of orthodontists and talking to our insurance company, we found that to be true in our case as well.  We were Read more [...]
