Are there secrets to affording dentistry when you don’t have insurance?
Breck T. – Missouri
I don’t know about secrets, but there are some things that you may not know about. Dental schools will often do cleanings at a discounted fee. Some for as little as $25 a cleaning. You could see if there is a local dental school in your area. However, they don’t always to other procedures, such as crowns and fillings (depending on the school).
Also, many dental offices offer their own “insurance” plan in order to make your dentistry more affordable.
However, the best piece of advice I can give you is to be honest with your dentist. Let him know your financial circumstances. Many dentists are willing to work with patients.
