Save money on dental care

According to this story on MSN you can turn to student medical personnel and save money on medical bills.

I am not too sure about some of the procedures but there are a few things you can do to save. I get my teeth cleaned by dental students all the time. They are not full fledged dentists but they perform the work under the supervision of real dentists.

I also get my x-rays done and this saves soooooooooo much money. I think for simple things like a cleaning or x-rays you can take the student since the job is so simple.

Now when it comes to having a filling put in I would really want someone with more experience.

The same goes for getting hair care from an apprentice. I would let the trainee wash my hair or even just do a trim on the ends. When it comes to a complicated process like getting highlights or a relaxer then I would want the person who has more experience.

I say go for it…they need the experience and you need the lower price that comes with having a trainee take care of you.

  1. I can confirm the dental cleanings thing. My wife is in dental hygiene school, and she can do cleanings for 20 bucks. The appointments can be up to four hours because the students have to be checked, but it can be a good savings.

  2. Hey Michael thanks for the info. Spread the word. I have never had any problems having the dental students use me as their guinea pig….and the certified dentist always comes to double check…so you KNOW your mouth is clean. All the best to your wife.
