Article Body:
For those who cannot afford high-cost dental treatment, there are a
number of avenues open for them in New York. Various dental plans and
community services are in operation so that the poor are not deprived of
necessary treatment.

Take for instance the NYU College of Dentistry. The college provides
nearly 230,000 visits annually to the most multiethnic, multicultural and
desperately poor patient population in the United States. They include a
large numbers of Medicaid recipients who account for approximately 60,000
patient visits annually. Many other patients are treated free of charge
because they are unable to pay for care, uninsured, or ineligible for
Medicaid. The College provides more than $30 million annually in free
care.

There are a few thousand network dentists participating in different
dental plans in New York. There are also clinics that provide free or
cheap treatment to those who cannot afford expensive treatment.

Lutheran Medical Center Dental, New York City Technical College, New York
University David B. Kriser Dental Center, and Sunset Pediatric Dentistry
are some of the places where dental treatment can be received at a low
cost.

Moreover, there are a number of dental plans that offer poor patients an
opportunity to receive treatment at a low price. Some of them are Aetna
Dental Access, GE Wellness Plan, Patriot Plan, and UNI-CARE 200.

Some of these plans are not dental insurance policies and they do not pay
directly to the providers of dental services. The plan member is
obligated to pay the dentist for all dental care services that he or she
receives. But the member will receive a pre-negotiated discount from the
dentists listed as providers in the network, in accordance with the
specific pre-negotiated discounted fee schedule.
