  • Do you have insurance?

  • High if you're also insured.

    cleanings here so far have been around 40-50 I'm insured. Visits are also inexpensive.

    I'd recommend you call around.. go to yellowpages.com look up local dentists, call their offices or email them asking for rates.
    You could save a load of money doing this.

    Good luck!

  • I live in the FL panhandle and I just made my appt. I have no insurance and have to pay $168 but that is with x rays. My sister said she just paid $98 without xrays. She lives in Alabama

  • Honestly, no. That is just about average without insurance. Keep in mind that the price does not include any fillings or additional work that may be done.
