I am looking for good travel insurance that includes dental. Not "accidental injury to natural teeth" but insurance that will cover a visit to the dentist for a toothache/cavity etc. I will be out of town for two months and do not want to be stranded without dental care in case of severe pain.

The best solution is usually to go for a check-up that includes x-ray and get all possible treatment right before you leave. If you don't have any caveties when you go you won't be in any pain and you won't need any dental work on the road.

Agreed, however, I do have a cavity and everywhere that takes my insurance is booked solid before my trip. Ultimately I'm not too worried, just a little paranoid after hearing someone tell me about being on a flight with a cavity and the pressure and pain, etc. That scarred me and now I am a bit paranoid :)

Hmm, where are you headed? There are some countries where you don't need to worry too much, either bc treatment is free as a rule, free in emergencies or very cheap.
