Does anyone know of an affordable dentist in the Utica area that will see someone without insurance and wont charge them an arm and a leg?

I don't have insurance either. It only costs me about 100 dollars for my regular 6 month check-up and cleaning. I see Dr. Fanelli. A Dr. is not something you should shop around for. He is a reputable dentist.

Dr. Mike Fanelli was my dentist for years, when my job cut my insurance he acted like he didnt want to know me. When I asked if he took medicaid he straight up said "no they only pay $0.50 on the dollar" & wouldnt even think about billing me & letting me pay the difference! I was a patient of his for years and it din't mean diddly to him. Personally I always liked him & he does excellent work but he aint cheap and doesnt care about your situation.

It is illegal for a dentist to accept cash from a patient they are treating under medicaid. The dentist must take only what medicaid pays and that is so little that it doesn't even cover the cost of the treatment.

I had no insurance and in an emergency dental incident about a month ago i went to south Utica dental group on the corner of Genesee st and Amy Av. I was very pleased with the Doc and assistant, both were very helpful and it only cost me $75 for the visit.

Dr Passalacqua is a great dentist and his prices are reasonable.
You can also go to St Lukes Dental clinic.
If you need just a cleaning call the Dental Hygenist program at MVCC in Rome. I beleive they have their students work on patients are part of their clinical training

I went to Rome, where the dental students are training to become hygenists. They were all excellent! The best cleaning i've ever had. Very pleasant, clean, and thorough. I'll surely be going back next yr. You'll never find a cleaning like this in a denist office!!

No insurance or medicaid, aren't there any new dentists that could use a few great references? Or willing to help a girl out? Or service with a discount for cash payment? I need my smile. Thank you in advance

They will keep giving you pain pills rather than cure the pain. While the scum sit on their asses and enjoy free health care.
