Lincoln Dental Clinics:
Affordable Dentistry

We know and understand that finding affordable dentistry is important. So, we’re here to help. In our article, we’ll cover these topics:

  • Financial Information From Our Lincoln Dental Clinics
  • Flexible Financing and Payment Options
  • How We Can Help You Afford The Dental Care You Need
  • Commonly Asked Questions About Affordable Dental Care and Payment Options

With three children of my own, I understand how quickly time can pass and how busy life gets. It can be easy to put things like doctor visits and dental checkups aside when you’re not experiencing any discomfort. Unfortunately, what many do not realize is that to maintain affordable dentistry, and overall good health, preventative treatment, and proper home care are imperative to prevent a dental emergency.


Cavities don’t hurt, and a common dental disease like periodontal disease can be a “silent killer” to your teeth. Because of this, when your teeth do reach the point of causing you discomfort, it can mean there is a more serious problem that can lead to a dental emergency.


Regular dental cleanings and exams can prevent problems before they begin. A problem with your teeth can mean a significant financial investment as well. Visiting an affordable dentist, such as Coddington Dental, that offers affordable family dentistry and dental office payment plans, can help with the cost. However, many times, emergency dentistry leads to root canals or extractions, which lead to costly dental implants or other large expenses.

I see many patients who have stayed away from the dentist because of fear, finances, or lack of insurance. Preventative care is the least expensive dental care you will ever receive. Whether or not you have insurance, if you come in for your biannual checkups, it gives us the opportunity to keep your teeth clean and detect any potential issues before they cause you discomfort or become a major financial burden.

We offer affordable dentistry with no dental insurance necessary and dental payment plans available for your convenience.

In the end, no matter how affordable dentistry is or what payment plans are available, taking care of your smile from the get-go is a great way to save money on the dental bill. Sometimes dental emergencies are unavoidable, but a toothache or periodontal disease could be caught or even prevented just by visiting us at least twice a year.

Here are some commonly asked questions about finding affordable dentistry:

Is dental work cheaper at a dental school?

Receiving dental care from students located at a dental college can be cheaper in some cases. Dental colleges, however, tend to have a longer wait before you can get in to get your work done, or the work you need done may take longer to complete. While there are licensed dentists on staff, typically, students are completing your work. The reason behind this is so that the soon to be dentists have an excellent understanding of the dental field once they have finished dental school. To find an excellent dental college near you, contacting a local dental office such as Coddington Dental can offer excellent advice and guidance.
