Deciding to go to the dentist without insurance means you’ll be paying for your service at the time of the appointment. If you’re writing a check or paying by cash (and no credit card fees are involved,) most private practices will include a courtesy discount of around 5-8%.

Seeing a dentist without dental insurance is quite similar to fee-for-service dentistry, where the patient pays for their appointment and is then partially reimbursed at a later point directly by their insurance carrier.
