Save more on dental care

Dental care is expensive. Crowns and root canals can easily run into the thousands of dollars!

If you're lucky enough to have dental insurance, it only covers a small part of that. Money Expert Nathan Bachrach shares a few ideas on how you can save:

  • Make sure you're signed up for the flexible spending account at work.
  • If you need a lot of work done, see if the dentist will give you a temporary crown, and then push the permanent work off a bit until you've saved for it.
  • Dental insurance should cover regular exams and cleanings.  

And remember what your mother said…keep those appointments, and the dentist will spot problems early before they become really expensive!
