Hello all,
I was recently accepted into the unc school of dentistry to become a patient there. Just wondering if anyone else has done this before? My name was drawn for their monthly lottery and I didnít know what to expect. I am hoping to get a crown put on there. I know itís done by students. Thanks!

I haven't done this, but I know people who have been involved in this kind of program and their results worked just fine (no problems that I know of). And UNC's dental school is top notch.

Also, the dental students aren't given free reign. They are under pretty close supervision by experienced dentists to make sure the procedure is done correctly. The down side would be that it takes longer than going to a dentist who has done thousands of these procedures.

Best of luck!

Thanks!! I heard it was significantly cheaper but it just takes longer. I have no problem with that though. I donít need extensive work. I have a chipped tooth and thinking Iíll need a crown. My dentist was going to charge $2800. Ouch.

$2800 for one crown??! Wow. Unless you need a root canal too that's about the most expensive I've heard of. They're usually in the range of about half that or less for just a crown.

They quoted me for a crown and root canal but wasnít sure if I needed the root canal. I was pregnant at the time and they didnít want to do X-rays until I talked to my dr. I kept putting it off.

Okay, then I can see this costing that much for both (unfortunately), which is a lot to have to deal with, I agree!

The cost is more painful than the procedure and some dentists tend to be more overzealous than others so it doesn't hurt to get a second opinion.
