Usually D schools require you to purchase there own health care, or waive the fee by purchasing you own health care that matches the quality care they expect. Does this mean that we can waive the fee for D school by simply staying with our parents until we are 26?

I think dental school still waive the insurance fee if you're still under your parents' plan (at age 24). I don't think this healthcare bill does more than that - other than extend the age to 26. Plain and simple, if you don't have insurance, dental school will provide that at a "small" cost...That's all.

Yep! When you fill out the waiver just fill it out with the info from your parents' policy

That would be a good idea, but I think that there are now reports that those benefits are not going to kick in until 2014 because of some errors.....not sure though
