Tips for saving on dental care
Updated: 8/12/2011 11:00:35 AM

Tips for saving on dental care A significant number of people in the U.S. do not visit the dentist for regular check-ups. For many, the reason is often the expenses a dental appointment can incur. To make dental care a more viable option for children and adults alike, there are a number of practices that may be able to lower the costs considerably, according to CBS MoneyWatch.

The news source reports that dental insurance may be the option that is most difficult to take advantage of, as approximately 50 percent of Americans lack oral health coverage.

Parents can inquire at their local dental practice to see if family discounts are offered, possibly reducing charges by 10 percent or more.

Additionally, some dentists will offer deals or discounts for new patients, including free exams or price reductions on costly procedures. To find the best deals, prospective dental patients can shop around and compare different offers, requesting a copy of treatment plans to learn full details of services offered.

Discount dental plans are another option worth considering, offered by providers partnered with various dental practices. Those with children will want to explore every choice available, as the National Association of Dental and Craniofacial Research states that 23 percent of U.S. children 2 to 11 have never seen a dentist.
