Dental Resources

There is a huge demand for affordable dental services in the Tucson community. If your dental need is the result of an accident or medical condition, contact your primary medical provider first to determine if any dental services are covered by medical insurance. Be sure to practice due diligence as an informed consumer before engaging in extensive and expensive dental work. Check out the professional affiliation, background and references of the dentist or clinic you select. Ask for recommendations from friends or relatives whose judgment you trust. It is a good idea to ask about payment plans. Some dental offices offer discounts for cash payments, some offer discounts for older adults, and others offer monthly payment plans.

Low-Cost Dental Options

Dentistry is expensive, especially for older adults. Dental care is not covered under Medicare, and therefore many older adults end up paying astronomical out of pocket prices for dental procedures. Additionally, because the cost is so high, many older adults also skip routine preventative check-ups, leading to more serious health outcomes. These low-cost options can help to bridge the gap and provide dental services.
