The following Everyday Savings Tip comes from, Vickie:
We do not have dental insurance, so I save money by going to the local college's dental hygiene clinic for cleanings and x-rays once a year. When I go to my dentist for my annual check, I take my x-rays with me. I'm only getting charged for the annual cleaning and check-up from the dentist.
The cleanings are the most thorough cleanings I have ever had, and it's free. You just have to give up time, between 4 and 5 hours, but it's worth it.
