Tips on Cutting Dental Costs

Dr. Art Ulene’s Tips On Cutting Your Dentist Bills

 

  • Brush & floss your teeth daily—it really WILL make a difference.
  • Have dental checkups and professional cleaning every 6 months.  If you see your dentist regularly, any dental problems you have can be treated in their early and less expensive stages.
  • Compare dental fees in your area.
  • Choose a dentist before a dental emergency.
  • Negotiate payments and costs with your dentist upfront.
  • Contact your local dental society for information on dental programs for which you may qualify and for referrals to low-cost dental care centers such as public health clinics and dental school clinics.

THE SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT STEP IN CUTTING YOUR DENTIST BILLS IS PREVENTION!
