Is your budget preventing you from getting the dental care you need? Well, it shouldn't, and it certainly doesn't have to. My name is Frances, and I've struggled through dental emergencies on a tight budget. Along the way, I learned lots of different strategies, and I want to share them with the world through this blog. In this space, we're going to talk about how to find an an affordable dentist, how to ask for a dental payment plan and how to find assistance paying your bill. We're also going to look at pain minimisation strategies. If you can't afford to see a dentist until payday, the posts here are designed to help you get through those days easily and relatively painlessly.
