I never heard of this Dental office before, but hope it really works out for them this time. It would be nice to hear of more Dental offices like this that are affordable to families that have no dental coverage. I have tried finding help with dental for my children before with no help. Were not rich nor do we qualify for any type of assistance but it really sucks when you work and can't afford something like having your childrens teeth taken care of. When any teeth need pulled or filled it's always $200.00 who can afford that? I feel middle class income families do without alot of their needs because they just can't afford the high prices and it would be great if there was help for them, not just people who qualify for welfare.

Can you imagine having a company, providing services or products to customers and not billing for those services or products. They would be broke too!
Our tax dollars hard at work again!!!

Ladybug call Small Smiles on Exchange St. I work for a social service agency and we do referrals to them all the time. They only take children, except medicaid and also work on a sliding scale.

Alot of this problem would be eliminated if dental were part of medical plans. I don't understand why this hasn't happened yet because according to dental experts, dental disease if untreated, causes all kinds of major medical problems.

Ya ok, someone is going to pay rediculous amounts of money every three months instead of the standard six months or more for a cleaning and or dental exam because they are lazy. One would have to either be a total moron or someone who doesn't go to the dentist theirself to not know why one would get their teeth cleaned every three months...hint number one, it ain't out of laziness.

There are actually several discount dental programs available. It is not insurance, but it does provide substantial savings at dentists that accept it. Just do a Google search for 'discount dental plans' and start comparing.

well at least the thugs will be able to have a nice clean white smile about them as they pull their guns out to collect the hoodie tax!
just think with whiter teeth perhaps we'll be able to see at least part of their faces under their criminal tool they call a hoodie!
outlaw hoodies, or let the clan start wearing their hoodies again, maybe that will start the hoodie wars, and we can get rid of both those groups at the same time, or at least thin their ranks.
hey can i have a discount on my hoodie tax, i've already paid to keep your teeth clean. ka-ching $$$$$
The Hoodie thugs go to the flea market and get a gold grill or to the corner store. I never seen the hoodies at my dentist office.

UHC would avoid the need for this hit or miss dental care. Vote for the Dem's in the November 2008 elections so we get UHC in the richest country in the world.
WAKE UP! UHC eventually will not pay for dental. We have one state here in the US that mandates health insurance for all. And guess what, after year TWO the projected surplus money will run out and premiums will need to rise. Families barely making ends meet are forced to pay for health insurance, and if not they are fined by the state. A double whammy, Thank you Democrats. And the families that can prove financial distress if they had to pay, well they don't need to buy into a plan. That means, once again, people are without health insurance. So much for government programs. The only way to get more affordable health plans is for the government to get OUT of health care. Let the free market force rates down, and insurance supppliers to get creative in policies. Your buddy Hillary was on the Wal-Mart board. Did she ever suggest providing decent benefits for the Wal-Mart employees? or did she just sit back and envision how the government could provide the benefits, allowing more profit to Wal-Mart ?????

With ObammyCare, I hear May Fong is setting up a dental practice @ Fong Farms in Deerfield. I understand she learned her trade on those prison ships.

Name, rank, serial number, and your IRA account.
