Thank you for your question. Please permit me to assist you with your concerns.
'Medical' generally does not include 'dental' unless there is a medical necessity to the procedure (such as removal of a tooth that is impacting the health of the child). Both dental and vision are generally treated separately, and are required to be added to the decree as special assessments. But until that takes place, you can withhold payment and demand that the courts 'clarify' as to whether or not those expenses were intended.
