A Personal Story: Quality She Can Afford? – Patricia, Hanover

quality_she_can_afford

Patricia lives in Hanover, New Hampshire. Patricia and her husband had dental insurance when they owned their own company, but since the company closed they have been uninsured. Patricia’s goal is simple: clean, healthy teeth. She had a good dentist, but she stopped using him because she could no longer afford him without insurance. She changed dentists hoping to save money but ended up not getting adequate quality of care. Patricia was really unhappy with the work of the new dentist and will not go back. Consequently, she has not seen a dentist in one and a half years. She continues to floss and brush diligently; but currently, she is not sure how to find quality care she can afford.
