Smile bright, thanks to the nation’s best.

According to the College Board, the average cost of tuition and fees per college year is $31,231. That number drops with public schools to $9,139 (in-state) or $22,598 (out-of-state). So the average American pays between $36,556 and $124,924 for a 4-year degree.

The average cost of a wedding is $26,444.

What is the average cost of a dental check up? Too much. The percentage of Americans between the ages of 18-64 who visited the dentist in the past year is 61.7%. That means that 38.3% of the population is not getting the recommended, proper dental care.

That’s no surprise, given the fact that the median wage per person is $26,695; it can be hard to make room for a visit to the dentist.

There is another way! Penn Dental Medicine offers the opportunity to be treated in the top teaching dentist environment.
