The availability of affordable dental care is an issue that affects everyone, especially those without dental insurance. Places that offer inexpensive dental care will most likely not be as fast or as experienced as regular priced dental service. You should be prepared to wait for need be for several hours at a clinic. It is likely that many clinics will ask for proof of income and residence (for local city and county clinics).
Call your local county or city health department and ask if they provide any affordable dental health clinics. If they do, set up an appointment and bring along any documentation that the clinic requires.
Call the nearest school of dentistry and ask if the school provides a cheap or free student dental clinic. It is likely that many schools will provide such a clinic because it provides their students an opportunity to practice dental work before they graduate.
Call local dentists if the first two options fail and ask if they perform probono (services donated without charge) or reduced price dental work for people who cannot afford the full-price work. It is plausible that some dentists will offer up to a 50 percent discount of their services if they can verify of income.
Determine if you have any dentist friends as a last resort. Ask them if they can set you up with reduced price dental work where they work. If the friend is close personal friend, then it is likely they will help you out.
Apply for low-cost health insurance such as Medicare, Medicaid, or Children’s Health Insurance Program for children under 19.
