At the same time, you should not limit your search to the dental practices in your area; look further and you might a dentist offering the same services, with the same competencies at a fraction of the cost. This might be especially true if you start looking for dentists in the suburb who might be cheaper than city tooth doctors because of their geographic location.

Practices who have recently opened their doors might offer discounts on specific procedures to attract and retain patients. You should also approach dental schools and ask them to recommend graduates who have shown promise while working alongside and being mentored by more experienced dentists.
