Need help finding dental insurance for individuals

Posted on Wednesday, Mar. 17th 2010 3:10 PM by Dental Plan Review in Dental Insurance, Dental Plans 5 Comments »

A friend of mine has no dental insurance and has bad teeth issues.  Last night when we when out to eat he broke a corner of is back tooth off.  He also has had a filling that fell out a long time ago so he just has a hole in another back tooth.   He can not afford dental work with out insurance and does not get dental though his job.  I told him he should be able to get dental insurance on his own but he does not think so.  Is there insurance he can buy if he wanted to ?

    Yes there are many different types of dental insurance as well as dental discount plans that your friend could get for himself in order to help with his dental needs.

    All he has to do is go on line. Here is a website that he could start with http://www.insurancecompany.com. He can go there and check out the available plans.

    Well all the current dental needs your friend has he may want to get a dental discount plan since they start right away and do not have any long term waiting periods the some dental insurance plans do.

    Either way it seems like he should try and do something about his teeth. Suggest that he find a dentist that is willing to work with him on a payment plan and treatment.

    Having extra money in hard times can be very hard. I hear where your friend is coming from. The problem he may run into is that having bad teeth and continually doing nothing to fix them can cost him more the just a few teeth.

    Bad teeth have been link to serious health related issues. Such as heart disease to name only one. Even with hard financial times there are many programs or places to go to get the dental help one needs. I took some time and found an old blog that was posted by JoAnn that may help you help your friend

    Sounds like to me your friend does not want to go to the dentist so he is making up reason why he can’t. See what he tells you when you give him all this information on how he can help himself.

    I bet he will still come up with a reason why it will not work for him. I have a friend like that and I realized it is up to him to do what is best for himself. So good luck on your efforts.

    Be careful of good intentions. Sometimes friends do not want to hear your good advise regardless that you are trying to help. Seems like he may not want to go. Unless you are sure that it is only about money and needing help I would not pressure him about it.

    It is easy to say that he can get an affordable dental plan but then again we are not his wallet. What we think of as affordable may still not be for him. Unless you are going to pay for his dental work let it go.
