RE: [webdesign-501] Group Dental Discounts/Insurance?

Hello Lonnie,


If your dental situation is extreme you may be better off to go to Thailand and get some work done there.

I know of several people that do this as a way to get good work done (Western Trained often) at much more reasonable prices.

Airfare is in the $800 range and then the cost is likely in the 30% of US fees area.  You would have to have a prognosis of $1500 to break even and any more tips into the direction of a combo vacation and dental visit.

Also, if you go this way make a way that it is a tax deduction by meeting with clients that are prearranged or web designers so you can get some money back from taxes.


Mexico could be another solution too and is closer.


Other options are to find a dental college and be a test subject.  Ouch.


Or a Web Page for Dental work barter.


These are just some ideas off the top of my head…I am fortunate to have a dental plan via my wife’s job.


Good luck on this,


Steve Perrott

Subject: [webdesign-501] Group Dental Discounts/Insurance?


Hi Everyone,

Lately a serious dental issue has put me through some pretty agonizing times. I have discovered the incredible lack of dental help in the surrounding areas and cannot believe how badly a situation can get if you don't have dental insurance! This has all made me think very hard about the need for something for those that are not on a dental insurance plan of some type.

Although I cannot make any guarantees as to what we can do about this as a group, I am willing to try!

Please let me know if any of you would be interested in either Dental discounts or Insurance as a group member. There is a very good chance that we would be able to pool our resources as a collective group to make things affordable for insurance or discounts.

If you are at all interested please respond to this message to express your interest and if you have any input or thoughts at all.

Thanks for your time everyone!
