BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Insurance a top reason people don’t see a dentist


Lack of insurance ranked after fear and apathy as a reason people avoid the dentist, according to a new survey from invisible aligners company, as reported by USA Today.

Nearly one in three Americans haven’t been to the dentist since before the COVID-19 pandemic began, according to the article.

Even before the pandemic provided people with a solid reason – fear of getting COVID-19, for example – to avoid the dentist, some Americans delayed care “for years.” Mostly because of fear, according to USA Today.

Overall, 59% said dental care is too expensive, 44% said they just don’t want to go, 39% worried about needing a procedure and 34% said not having dental insurance has kept them away.
