I have dental insurance, but my girlfriend of 8 years does not. We dont live together. She has had some shaddy work done to her teeth and its starting to show. A recent infection caused swelling and is going to be 1700 bucks out of pocket (with a 20% discount).
I dont live with her and I think my insurance only allows family and spouse to be covered.
Is there any insurance companies that someone can recommend that I can sign up for dental coverage? I COULD pay the 1700 out of pocket but it leaves me with nothing, especially when they want the payment in 2 weeks.
I like this location, as we got an exam done by them. Very nice and honest.

I don't know anything about dental work but we go to Nobel Dental on Fruitridge. They are nice people too. Maybe you can call them up and see what they can do for you. But I would at least call your insurance company first and see if they can pay some of it.
you should get more than 20% off. Mine gives me 50% for cash payment. Doctors hate insurance companies as much as we do
Mine also offered to do a 3 payment in-house payment plan with me when I had to do a root canal and crown

You could try CompBenefits . com Not an insurance but more like a discount type. We've got it and it's not too bad.

Here's to our wives and sweethearts - may they never meet.
If you agreed with me we'd both be right.
Like NWA said - they are not gonna cover her if she's not already on the policy. And it's very doubtful that she is going to be able to get coverage now for a pre-existing condition that she's going to have worked on in the near future. That's not really how insurance works.
Did some homework today. The company I want to go with doesnt want to hook it up at all. They said 2 payments in 2 weeks thats it. So perhaps I wont go with them.
Called western dental and they had a financing option with zero down, zero financing, and 99 bucks a year. Then I read 5 pages of bad reviews online with people saying that they charge 4x as much as normal. Thats with typing in "western dental good reviews". So scatch that.
I now have to look at delta dental.
If im going to pay a SUPER HIGH PREMIUM that western dental wanted for their services I might as well open another credit card and go with the company I have now.
I DO want dental coverage for my girlfriend. I think she needs it. She has some cavities forming to. Im glad I didnt purchase a new car like I planned lol.
WEll I found a company that offers a discount but only to certain places.
Careington 500 is not an insurance plan. Its a discount plan. I can save an additionall hundred bucks over the school discount. So its not bad.
But I called again and she said that she can do a payment plan but I cant have the school discount in place. But she did say that I can do the cleaning and the build up, and then do the crown later...that really helps !
I looked up delta dental and it seems it will work out. However it wont be active till over a month from now. So she said, for now fix the infection and pay 718 with the current discount insurance company. THen in 2 months, come back with your delta dental and I will only have to pay around 160$ instead of 789$.
So this is what I may do. The fee is 90 bucks for careigton 500 a year. I have to pay the fee of 718$ up front but that I can definitly do. Then in 2 months when the delta goes through, ill be set. She needs LOTS of dental work. Perhaps the cap will be done at my old dentist that accepts delta dental.
Now I got to decide if I want to put it on my credit card, open another credit card to up my credit, or just pay cash.
credit card charge 20% interest, you wanna pay that on 800 dollars? haha..
That means even if you pay off the next month you owe extra 13 dollars. take 6 months to pay off and its extra 80 dollars, a year and it's 160 dollars... And that's assuming you are disciplined enough not to purchase anything else on the card in the meantime!
Always if there's a choice of credit over cash, take cash!
