Dear 100 Hour Board,
BYU's health insurance doesn't cover dental. Are there any dentists in the area that offer discounts for students so that uninsured students can still get their x-rays and cleanings?
My choice of dentist is Roseman Dental, a dental school of Roseman University with a location in South Jordan. What you'll pay is 50-70% lower than average dental care costs.There's no trade-off in quality, but it may take may take slightly longer, because the dental students are in a learning environment.To ensure safety and quality, each procedure is approved beforehand by and checked afterwards by the dental professors in the room, who also answer questions, stop by, and assist as necessary.
It's easy to get an appointment, (unlike the University of Utah, which can take months for intake), and they're flexible with timing.
Something I like about the clinic is that they tell you beforehand what your treatment options are and how much each thing will cost specifically beforehand, then ask you what you'd like to do. I also like that they're similar to me in age, which isn't a priority, of course, but it's awesome for a sense of rapport, and I look forward to seeing my dentists. I've had great experiences and would recommend them and the clinic unreservedly.
P.S. You can save an additional 20% on the cost of treatment by using their $12/month dental plan, which I use, since I don't have some other dental plan. The screening visit, checkups and cleanings are covered by this plan.
