    Possibly... I was unable to find any conclusive reason for the origins of the segregation between dental maintenance and medical health from the perspective of insurers.

    Yup. I can't figure out the logic but no dental insurance I know of will pay for cleaning, but will pay for endless cavity fillings. Just like no drug insurance plan I know of will pay for quit smoking aids but will pay for very expensive COPD, heart and cancer drugs.

    Dumb IMO but they must have the actuary data to show it pays out in the end.
