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.
some more frugal tips for the dentist.

using them to rip open anything.

always brush and floss afterwards.

to remove food during the day.

and if it is covered by insurance.
