There are a couple ways to save money at the dentist. First of all, be sure and see the dentist regularly and keep up with your teeth.  It costs less to fill a tooth than to have to have a crown or root canal.

If you don't have insurance, tell them, and ask for a discounted rate.  You should be able to pay the same price as those with insurance.

Second, think about having work done at a dental school.  No one likes to go to the dentist, and it may make you feel uncomfortable, but for the thrift conscious, it is a good way to save money.
