I just signed my father up for the dental plan through AARP. It's ~ $550 a year for insurance coverage but it's a good plan. AARP is good. Also, many of the companies that offer Medicare Supplements also offer Senior Dental Plans. Here in California Blue Cross has a good plan. To find companies in your state that provide dental insurance or dental discount plans, go to the National Association of Dental Plans site ( which has a directory of companies that offer dental insurance. The directory can be searched by state and you can select "individual" and get the list of just those companies that provide individual dental insurance in your state. The listing also tells you if the company provides dental HMO, dental PPO, dental indemnity (traditional insurance without a network) or a discount plan (not insurance but a discount off the dentist's fees who are part of the discount network).

A dental bur isn't going to affect an elderly person in any different way than a younger person, provided their teeth are in good condition.

Elderly Insurance is usually more expensive than the average insurance for a healthy and young person. Some insurance costs as little as $0.35 a day but it can vary.

Private health insurance companies generally avoid the elderly. If an elderly person currently does not have medical insurance, their best bet is to find a job that will grant group insurance regardless of their age, or to apply for Medicare.

NHS would be your best bet Ask for a HC form- you may be entitled to reduced treatment or free treatment.
