West Virginia Ranked One Of The Worst In The Nation For Dental Health

WalletHub, a personal finance website, just released a report of states with the best and worst dental health. According to the report, West Virginia was ranked the fourth worst in the nation in 2018. This is based off of diet, smoking habits, dental treatment costs, and frequent check-ups.

Dentists here in Raleigh County said it's a shame we are on the list, but one of the main problems is a lot of people are scared of the dentist. 

"The big thing is just getting people to come in and visit the dentist and the importance of six month regular recalls, and with the techniques that are available out there that the fear of being hurt is not there," Dr. Kurt Reiber, said.

Dentists in our area recommend looking into getting frequent check-ups.
