Saving for a Change: Tip #17

It’s been said that good health starts with your mouth. Dentists recommend that we brush regularly and floss often, and every six months get a cleaning. A visit for a cleaning doesn’t have to cost  a lot of money and insurance is not required. For the past few years our family has had our dental cleanings through the Dental Hygiene Clinic at a nearby university.Initially, there was a little apprehension because of being unfamiliar with the clinic, but the clinic was highly recommended by a friend and after the first visit we felt at ease. Students studying Dental Hygienists perform dental services on patients as part of their grade, while their work is monitored and reviewed by their instructors. The services offered at the clinic may vary from school to school but the common services are: evaluations, cleanings, x-rays, teeth whitening, scaling and polishing, as well as preventive services and all at reasonable rates. At the end of the visit we are given little goodie bags with travel size toothpaste, mouthwash, a toothbrush and helpful dental information; leaving the clinic with a brighter smile and some change in our pocket.

Casually speaking and all the best,
