There are close to 60 dental schools in the country that offer quality care at a fraction of the cost of private dentists. I used them for years. An $800 crown can cost you only $200. Sure you get a senior student, but you also get a professor who is better then most private practitioners. Most also offer payment plans.
can be available from your local dental school. When I lived close to a school I used to use dental schools programs all the time. You get a student to work on you but they are senior students working under the watchful eye of a professor. Most importantly you get the latest in technology rather than old technology you may encounter in an established office. You can save a bundle. Find your nearest dental school
