Dental Insurance

When I changed jobs in December, Mr. M and I decided that I would go on his insurance due to the infertility issues. Because of this decision, we somehow decided not to get dental insurance which I forgot about until I went to the dentist last week. Hello surprise $160 appointment fee! I guess as a bonus prize, my dentist found a cavity which I need to get fixed. So now we need the insurance and I’m shopping around. Any suggestions?


  1. Ouch. Those are always unpleasant surprises. Sorry, but I really have no idea how to go shopping around for these kinds of things. Does your or his workplace offer a specific carrier? Even if you did not elect it, you can inquire with the same company.

  2. Go to the dental school in your area, they usually have the best care at rock bottom prices, and the students are supervised by very experienced dentists with access to the most technologically advanced procedures. Here I go to NYU for all of my dental care, including cleanings. The appointments are longer, but are well worth the extra time.

  3. Hi,

    Great site! I'm trying to find an email address to contact you on to ask if you would please consider adding a link to my website. I'd really appreciate if you could email me back.

    Thanks and have a great day!

  4. In times like this, having a dental insurance plan would come in handy. Some dental plans can cover many types of dental procedures at a reasonable price. You can try and search the Internet for dental insurance near your place. And don’t be afraid to ask questions about their services and coverage to make sure that you know what you are availing of. I hope you’ve already found by now a good dental plan that can fit your needs.
