FREE Denal help in Asheville, NC August 2012

Dr. Mac,

You and I agree on your innovative solution to eliminating much of the expense in healthcare, especially dentistry. As a matter of fact, it is included in the MPACT position paper.

However, as you well know, you are ahead of your time. While it would be wonderful if we could change the way the economics of our profession operates, there are many many politics involved. Please post professionals that provide your solution for others to see.

FREE Denal help in Asheville, NC August 2012

No doubt, nothing is free. For many years, me and colleagues have financed our work without accepting a salary from the organizations we've led. However, I have always understood it was for a reason. For example, a nationally recognized free dental organization is now fully funded and led by our dental society.

This was simply a stepping stone in addressing access to dental health care.

Should there be emergency dental care available?

This question was in regard to a dentist available in a hospital ER. This came up among colleagues after the organization had been approached by patients that had received inappropriate treatment in the ER, via physician assistants. Considering how many people seek treatment after normal business hours in ERs for emergencies, what possible solutions might be available to address this present access issue?

Common services provided includes extractions, fillings, cleanings and panoramic x-rays.

Don't forget to show your appreciation at these events since this motivates the professionals to volunteer again in future events.

GO EARLY! Not only does it increase your chances of being seen, you are in the first group of patients getting treatment.

Bring something to do, eat and drink. No matter how you look at it, there will be a waiting period. It is the nature of these type events. While you will likely meet new people and be distracted in some communication, it helps if you prepare yourself for the wait. Otherwise, it can be very tense to sit among many hungry, thirsty, tired people.

Should there be emergency dental care available?

One of the greatest issues in access to dental care is a need for emergency help. While there are a number of obstacles to dental ERs, they could provide much needed relief and treatment.

WHAT DO YOU THINK? Should there be emergency dental help available?

How to get over $300 in dentistry for about $20

How to over $300 in dentistry for about $20 bucks

 

           When you are going to the dentist for treatment, some of the upfront cost can be avoided by using alternatives.

In order for you to receive the care you need, you will have to have x-rays.

  • A single x-ray runs about $20,
  • a set of bitewings (4 molar view) about $55,
  • a full mouth x-ray about $160 and
  • a panoramic x-ray $150.

A dental exam is about $65, but some office have a visit fee of about $150 that covers the exam. If your gums are very healthy, a cleaning will cost about $60. However, if you require periodontal treatment, the cost is significantly higher, at about $1300 for full treatment. A dentist office charges roughly $20 for fluoride treatment. All of these services are available at dental hygiene schools and unlike dental schools, they are plentiful. You can expect to pay about $20, which covers any of the above treatments. Plus, other services are likely available. You can go to the education page of the American Dental Hygienist Association and find a list of schools around the country. Many of the schools may house other programs in which provide other dental treatment.

Tax Season: A break for the poor and a way to pay for dental treatment.

Many people fret tax season since it usually means writing a fat check to the IRS. However, this is one break that poorer people get. The lowest income brackets qualify for refundable credits that could mean a sizable refund in the early part of the year. While some write a check for thousands, others receive refunds for thousands.

Could this pay for your dentistry? Yes. Sure you have other needs......the money is fairly spent before you get it. But think. When else might you have the lump sum you need to rid of the nightmare of dental disease.

Did you know?

You can receive your tax refund very quickly (in less than 3 weeks) without paying outrageous fees? The IRS offers free electronic filing with forms online. Some online tax services, like Turbotax, provide services for free for certain income brackets.

Have you been paid for services that are "under the table" (a phrase I hate----it means 'it seems like I am doing you a favor, but I am cheating you out of up to 7.65% of your income')? Doing contract work in which you are paid a specific dollar amount for working is taxable. When you file (using self-employment forms--Sch SE and Sch C), you will pay the full amount of your social security and medicare taxes (known as FICA). However, if you are in lower income brackets, you will offset this with credits. Not only do you likely receive a refund, you get your future benefits paid.

Tax credits aren't just for people with kids....poor people without children can receive Earned Income Credit and there are refundable credits for students.

Taxes get a bad rap. It is important that members of society pay in to support this country.....it is expensive to be America. For poorer Americans, it means a refund because they tried.

Get busy and file those taxes. And if you dental care, now is the time. MPACT helps people get the dental care they need. If you need low cost or reduced fee dentistry to help you stretch your tax refund, use the contact page and we will assign you a dental health mentor to put you in the right direction. If you have questions about filing your taxes and receiving your refund, ask them here for others to see.

Very affordable dentistry in SC

Since I never want my motives to be questioned as it pertains to my desire to help people, I don't usually refer to dentists or offices unless they specifically work with MPACT to meet those needs.

However, after pondering the point, I want those of you in SC (Florence) to know you have some very affordable dentistry nearby. It should be noted that this is a genuine recommendation and I am not being compensated by this office in any way. The Sexton Dental Clinic offers substantially lower fees than are customary.

Here is a link to the price list. To give you an idea of a few things that had me smiling:

  • Complete upper and lower denture (with extractions) $180
  • Exams $20
  • Simple extraction is $39/tooth ot $18/tooth with denture purchase.
  • One day crowns (caps) $500 (usually $1000)

I venture to say that those in Georgia, Tennessee and North Carolina would find a trip to Florence, SC to be well worth it.

 

Remember, if you are having trouble getting your dental needs met, there are volunteers at  MPACT that will coach you along the way and advocate for you when necessarily.
