Dental Care – Budget Options

According to a study, 79% of low income people without dental insurance are not aware of any affordable options for dental care.  The good news is there are affordable option,  you just have to know where to look.

These low-cost dental care resources may be available in your community:

  • Dental schools. Many dental schools offer low cost dental work at a reduced cost.  The dental care is provided by the students, under the direction of a trained professor.
  • Community health centers. Some Cities have community programs that offer low cost or in some cases even free dental care.  These programs are run by volunteers that want to help give back to the community.  So check with you local municipality to find these community programs.
  • Discount dental plans. These plans are usually less expensive than dental insurance.  Discount dental plans are a very inexpensive option to get a lot of savings on your dental bills.  These programs work by giving you access to a network of dentists that have agreed to work at a discounted rate, in exchange for more business.  These discounts can range from 20-60% off and normally cost as little as $5.95 a month.

Certain dentists will take payment plans, so if the above options are not enough you can call around to find a dentist that will do the work with just a little money up front.  You then can agree to make monthly payments to pay for your work.

Managing Out-of-Pocket Dental Expenses

Having a strict budget may be very cumbersome especially when health issues arise unexpectedly. Trying to spend a fortune on your dental health may not be a very good idea if you have a tight budget. It would be best if we had an inexpensive dental plan in order to cover most of our bills. The problem is, these types of dental plans are often very rare and expensive.

Most of us have a strict budget and do not have extra money to spend on dental health. Unfortunately, dental issues often seem to arise at the least opportune times, catching us off guard and negatively affecting our finances. Fortunately if your only option is to pay out of pocket, you will be pleased to know that there is a product known as a discount dental plan, that will reduce your out of pocket expenses up to 20% off your dental.

So besides signing up to a discount dental plan to get your dental done at a discounted rate, the other things you can do is to focus on having a good preventative maintenance routine. This is important not only at home, but also at the dentist. You should set up 2 scheduled appointments a year for a checkup and a cleaning. This is important because it is a relatively small cost for this and by doing this he can address minor issues while they are still minor.

It is important to have a good relationship with your dentist. He can help you plan and budget for future expenses, by letting you know what to expect and budget for sometimes years in advance. Some dentists also have payment plans to further help spread out the costs.

No matter how tight your budget is, there is always room to adjust. You can always sacrifice a portion of every part of your non-fixed expenses. Dental health is a very serious matter, so do not neglect it.
