How deduct self-employed health insurance premium deductions in addition to 1095-A?

When I enter my self-employed Form 1095-A medical premiums via Business Deductions and Credits>Self-employed Health Insurance Paid, TT directs me to enter1095-A since my medical plan was purchased through marketplace. However, it does not allow me to enter additional premiums that are not listed on the 1095-A, specifically my dental premiums. TT support asked me to delete 1095-A, enter dental premiums via Sch. C then re-enter 1095-A. Does not work, continues to force only 1095-A premiums. Forced to override total health insurance deduction on 1040 Ln. 29. Any solutions or workarounds?
