About a year and a half ago I lost my company paid dental insurance. Prior to that I would schedule a teeth cleaning including a thorough exam and full mouth x-rays once a year. The approximate fee of between $200 and $350.00 would only cost me the $40.00 deductible. Since I lost the insurance I have been putting off the procedure due to the budget busting cost. Here’s how I solved this budget problem — and you can too!

Many local community colleges have dental hygiene certification programs. Locally, I found College of Lake County has a certified dental hygienist school. You can schedule the exam with them including the full mouth x-rays FOR FREE!! The cost of the cleaning is $15.00. I went for the exam and x-rays a few weeks ago. What a pleasant surprise!! I was led from the reception area to a brightly lit state of the art examination theater. All the equipment appeared to be new and white glove clean. There were a number of examination stations each with a student nearing completion of the program and heading towards their board certification — all supervised by a licensed dentist and certified dental hygienists. Everyone was super friendly, enthusiastic and upbeat. My ‘hygienist’ was also very gentle and polite. I highly recommend this for anyone who lacks dental insurance. For an individual you will save from $200 to $335/ea visit for a family of 3 that’s $600.00 Do the math and see how much money you can save.
