How Can You Find an Affordable Dentist

Posted By: wpadmin | November 14, 2016

Healthcare has been a major topic this year as many Americans continue the search for more affordable options. Primary health care is usually the priority of most health plans, but it is possible to also find an affordable general dentist in Peachtree City. Check out some of these affordable options from Parkside Dental Practice.

Dental Schools

Local colleges, universities, and vocational schools are always looking for patients for dental students to practice on. They offer a wide variety of services including endodontics, oral surgery, orthodontics, and pediatric dentistry under the direct supervision of certified dental professionals. Services are usually very affordable because the school absorbs most of the standard operating costs. Keep in mind that some schools may have limited hours of operation and only accept a limited number of patients. Check out the American Dental Association’s website for a list of approved dental schools in your area.

Low-Cost and Free Clinics

Your local health department offers a variety of health services at a low cost to residents on a budget. Costs are usually determined on a sliding scale based on your yearly income. In addition to regular check-ups, family planning, and yearly vaccinations, public healthcare clinics also offer basic dental services. Depending on your area, you can get yearly preventative care like cleaning, fillings, and crowns.

Some offices also offer more comprehensive services like root canals or they can refer you to a local dentist who works with the county for advanced dentistry. Free clinics are usually made up of local dentists and dental assistants who practice on a volunteer basis in their community. Free clinics usually have limited hours based on the number of available volunteers but they are a great option for basic dental services.

Discounts and Promotions

Some practices will offer discounts to local students and families on a budget. These discounts will be specific to each office and will require some calling around to find an office that will work with your specific situation. Promotional discounts on basic services like x-rays and cleanings are more common at offices that are a part of a franchise. Also, be on the lookout for promotional discounts during the summer and fall when students are getting ready to go back to school.

  1. My sister is planning to get a dental assessment, that is why I am hoping to find one that specializes in general dentistry. Since she needs one as soon as possible, it’s good that I came across your article as my guide. Perhaps, I shall then consider checking out the American Dental Association’s website so I can go over the list and find ones that are near our area.

  2. Today, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive
    a thirty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know
    this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
