As you were planning for retirement, you probably thought a lot about making sure you would have enough income to cover your medical expenses. However, dental care during retirement is an often-overlooked expense that can take a serious bite out of your hard-earned retirement income.

Medicare supplement plans don’t include dental insurance either. And although some Medicare Advantage managed care plans offer dental benefits, both the network and the coverage could be very limited.
