Saving money on dental care may depend greatly on your status; students, seniors and low-income individuals are often first in line to receive help. According to Tim McDonough, executive director of Finance & Operations at Boston University's Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine, programs vary a great deal based on the funding available for specific programs.

If you can get an appointment at a dental clinic, McDonough estimates that the average patient finds substantial savings. For example, one student plan offered by Boston University provides patients with two annual cleanings, x-rays, fillings, emergency treatments and exams for a flat fee of $299. However, it's very hard to say how much most patients will save because of the myriad programs and the variation in dental costs around the country, McDonough says.
