    When we lost dental insurance, we found that individual plans did not pay enough to make the premiums worthwhile. We have a good relationship with our dentist and worked out a discount for paying at the time of service for cleanings, plus a discount on repair work, if needed. He was willing to make this "deal" since he is paid up front and doesn't have to accept insurance reimbursement, or wait for his money.

    This arrangement costs us approximately the same amount per year as we were paying for premiums, so we break even.
