Article source for : Has anyone ever used a local dental school for simple dental work?
I've a very old filling that is giving me indications that it should be replaced. Since it's so old (almost 30 years), it occurred to me that I could save money by seeking out a procedure at a local dental school. UT doesn't seem to have one, despite the addition of the UTMC, but according to this list:
... the only local offerings are "hygeine" and "assistant" programs. The closest actual dental schools are:
Case Western Reserve, School of Dentistry
University of Detroit Mercy, School of Dentistry
Ohio State University, School of Dentistry
University of Michigan, School of Dentistry
I'm interested if anyone has ever sought dental work in this manner. Do I have to seek out an actual dental school? Are old fillings something that dental schools like to show to students? Is it cheaper?
