Why don't you make a trip abroad? After paying the plane ticket and the treatment bill, you've still saved your money!
The quality of dental practice and the materials used are the same, but the price of the work that dentist does is much lower. It takes you an hour or two (by plane, take low cost flight) to come to Croatia. Croatian dentists are known to practice western dentistry at eastern european prices.
This is an excellent modernly equiped dental clinic (has it's own lab and radiology) with over thirty years of experience in Umag (Croatia) that I would sincerely reccommend, go visit their site (you can phone or Skype them, they are all very good in English, they also arrange your whole accomodation and give a free treatment plan estimation)

Oh, yes and by paying the bill in the clinic I've mentioned you get a 2 to 5 year quarantee as well as free chekups (they also do pediatric dentistry)!
Croatia is only 1,5hour away by plane...think about it!
For sure

Well it does not cost much to brush your teeth. Parents, if you are going to have kids, this is one of your responsibilities to your children. Lets she to by a candy bar or tooth paste.

Kentucky's public water systems are 99.6% fluoridated, the most fluoridated state in the country. Kentucky has the worst teeth in the U.S. and one of the highest, if not the highest, oral cancer rates. Fluoride harms teeth, it doesn't stop decay, it causes it! There are more dentists and they make more money in fluoridated areas.

"Fluoridation," said Dr. Albert Schatz, Nobel Prize winner, " is the biggest fraud ever perpetrated because it's been perpetrated on more people than any other fraud."

Cancer goes up about 5%/year more in fluoridated areas compared tor non fluoridated areas. Bone cancer rates (osteosarcoma) among young boysare up to 7 times higher in fluoridated areas (Harvard study).

Dental fluorosis (stained teeth) rates in fluoridated areas are now over 60% among children. Fluorosed teeth are MORE susceptible to decay and particularly prevalent among the poor. Continental Europe has banned it.

Fluoridation is not about saving teeth, it's about saving millions for fertilizer and aluminum mining companies who need to get rid of their toxic by-product, rated "Extremely Hazardous Waste" by the EPA. It's untested, contaminated and radioactive.
