Dental insurance: If you can't afford treatment, try a dental school in your city or a public clinic. Some dentists will work in clinics once a month pro-bono.

Care Credit & Others: Many times dental offices will have their own insurance programs, offer 0%-interest credit options for a period of time, and offer discounts for cash. Not to mention, dental tx can be phased into several smaller visits to allow finances to play a smaller role in the overall picture. In summary, talk to a few dentists in your area and see what they offer, they want to treat you well : ).

Dental treatment: All healthcare comes with a cost because doctors have many costs involved in running their practices. Talk to Dentist. They may offer you a discount and/or a payment plan. There are 3rd party payers that will absorb your debt and then you pay them back over time--again, talk to your Dentist. See your banker for a loan. Dental Schools and social service clinics have reduced fees.
