Seeing the words “cheap dentist” doesn’t automatically have you reaching for the phone to make a dentist appointment, but perhaps it should!

One of the main reasons people forego dental care is because of cost, and at Penn Dental Medicine we don’t want you to jeopardize your dental health because the cost is too steep. Even the American Dental Association recognizes that the financial barriers to dental care are causing adults to bypass it all together.

The Benefits of Low-Cost Dental Care

Cheap DentistA cheap dentist benefits your smile and your budget. Here are a couple of important reasons why receiving low-cost dental care benefits you:

Preventative Care

Having the option for cheaper dental care allows you to receive preventative care. When you see your dentist regularly, you and your dentist are able to stay on top of any potential issues, giving you a better chance at keeping your smile healthy and avoiding corrective dental procedures in the future.

Also, being an active participant in your oral health helps keep your smile happy and healthy. Staying consistent with your oral hygiene routine by brushing, flossing, and eating a healthy diet lowers the chances you’ll need restorative care.  

Budget-Friendly Care

Low-cost dental care benefits your budget and your smile. As mentioned by the American Dental Association, many adults choose to opt out of dental care because the cost is simply too high. Even those with dental insurance choose to wait until they absolutely need to utilize their insurance to do so. About 40% of those with dental insurance don’t feel the need to see a dentist because they aren’t in pain. A third of respondents surveyed avoid the dentist because they believe that prior neglect is going to significantly increase the cost of their visit. Cheaper dental care provides reassurance that you’re caring for your smile and not breaking the bank.
