Cheapest Dentist in Houston

Dentistry can get pretty expensive. From braces to deep cleaning to crowns. Dental work is not cheap even with insurance! The question becomes: where can I get quality dentistry at a price I can afford? I have dental insurance and have gone to a few dentists and after getting the bill my teeth were not the only thing that was hurting. Someone mentioned going to the Dental School in Houston but I didn't feel like being some dentists guinea pig. I spoke to a neighbor who was in the UT Health School of Dentistry and he explained that the professors were around to check all the work and they would have 30 + yrs experience. I decided to give it a try and my wallet thanked me. You should expect things to take a bit longer as paperwork needs to be filled out and their work needs to be looked over. It is time well spent in my opinion as even after most insurance your cost will be 40-60% less. If you are having some major dentistry work you could be saving thousands of dollars. To apply as a patient you need to fill out a form and they should contact you to schedule a x-ray for an evaluation. Update 2014 the school is totally redone with better equipment and everything is state-of-the-art.
Prices have gone up a bit but you can be sure it's still cheaper and a great deal.
