What Our Patients Say

“At my first experience at the Penn Dental Medicine clinic, they were on time, personable, and exceptionally thorough. The medical history they took was the most thorough I ever had at a dental visit. They were patient and willing to answer any questions. I was assigned a dentist (student) who was friendly and concerned about all my worries. If the rest of the procedures go this well, I will feel that I have made a particularly good choice.”

– John

“I couldn’t have been more impressed with the quality of care and knowledge of the student dentist who I saw. She put me at ease and made me feel comfortable with the procedures being performed at every step of my care. I usually am nervous about going to the dentist, but am actually looking forward to my next appointment.”

Offset Aging with a Low-Cost Option from Your Philadelphia Dentist

  • Penn Dental Author Penn Dental Medicine

As many as 37% or more Americans don’t have dental insurance. What happens when you suddenly have to pay for a huge operation? Aging causes your teeth to become weaker and more susceptible to decay. Old fillings can weaken your teeth and previous operations may not hold the way they once did. Getting older is, by no means, the time to stop regular visits to your Philadelphia dentist. Yet many people in their 50s and 60s—the baby boomers, which constitutes the largest proportion of the American population—don’t have dental insurance, either because they’re working part-time, they’re contracted rather than regular employees, or they’re self-employed. Medicare won’t cover the basic costs of dental care that folks need to maintain healthy teeth. That means cleanings, fillings, dental plates, dentures, tooth extractions—you name it—are not included in Medicare coverage.

And though you can buy it in every state except Washington, that’s only if you are also buying a health care plan through the marketplace. Here is a breakdown from Healthcare.org, if you are considering buying dental insurance this year.. If you’re in your 50s or older and don’t have dental insurance, don’t panic. Though this can be financially challenging, there are other options out there for you. How to Pay a Philadelphia Dentist First: if the cost is high, then ask your dentist if…
