Make $ with Arts and Crafts time for Adults

    In the past crafters have had to slug it out at craft fairs and farmer's markets, often meaning long hours and little profit. All of that has changed in the last few years as a number of online marketplaces have opened that allow amateur crafters a forum to sell their goods. Crafters can now have their goods seen all over the world without leaving home, which is not only great for convenience, but wonderful for keeping a low overhead. Before you pick up the glue gun and start buying pipe cleaners in bulk, here are my top tips to selling your crafts online:

How to get free dental care

    Dental care is important, and with many government and employer cut backs, getting the dental care you and your family need can be more expensive than ever! Even if you do sign up with an insurance carrier, many policies require a 6 month waiting period before benefits begin. Dental care is a part of health care, and therefore non-negotiable. So here are our methods for getting free dental care:

1. Clinical Trials:

    In a clinical trial (also called an interventional study), participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or changes to participants' behavior, for example, diet. Clinical trials may compare a new medical approach to a standard one that is already available or to a placebo that contains no active ingredients or to no intervention. Some clinical trials compare interventions that are already available to each other. When a new product or approach is being studied, it is not usually known whether it will be helpful, harmful, or no different than available alternatives (including no intervention). The investigators try to determine the safety and efficacy of the intervention by measuring certain outcomes in the participants.

    For dental care, this usually means testing new cleaning equipment, however each trial is different and will explain out the details and risks (if any). Most trials include all needed dental care, and some will even pay for braces and other highly expensive dental procedures.
    Some tips to remember with this method: There are far more people who want free dental care that people willing to give it, so this method does take a little effort. There are many companies who's job it is to screen any applicants to join these clinical trials. The big secret is to sign up with multiple companies, this will allow you to apply for the most trials in your area. Also the further from home you are willing to travel, the more likely you will be accepted to a trial.

    Here are some sites where you can get started signing up....and remember none of these companies will ever charge you for applying, or being accepted. Some will even pay you a few dollars if there is anything time consuming they need, like extra questionnaires or video testimony.

2. Have old work repaired


    If you find yourself needing dental help due to faulty work, or work redone, your old dentist may have to pay for your treatment, or provide treatment for free. Many states malpractice laws are complicated, so make sure you consult with a professional. Luckily for us, many of those professionals will provide a free consult. Check out:

dentalnegligence.us - Has a search function for dental malpractice

3. Schools:

    Dental schools can be a good source of quality, reduced-cost dental treatment. Most of these teaching facilities have clinics that allow dental students to gain experience treating patients while providing care at a reduced cost. Experienced, licensed dentists closely supervise the students. Post-graduate and faculty clinics are also available at most schools. Dental hygiene schools  may also offer supervised, low-cost preventive dental care as part of the training experience for dental hygienists. Check your local yellow pages. Now how do you make this free? When you call and find out pricing...ask if they take any kind of discount plan or insurance. Many of these clinics will not charge you your co-pay.....thus making your visit....free. Here some sites where you can search for local schools:



4. Government:

    Just in case you have not tried to apply for free dental care through your local welfare programs, here are a few programs to get you started:

Bureau of Primary Health Care

The Bureau of Primary Health Care, a service of the Health Resources and Services Administration   (1-888-Ask-HRSA), supports federally-funded community health centers across the country that provide free or reduced-cost health services, including dental care.

Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services   (CMS) administers three important federally-funded programs: Medicare, Medicaid, and the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP).

    Medicare   is a health insurance program for people who are 65 years and older or for people with specific disabilities. Medicare dental coverage is limited; it does not cover most routine dental care or dentures. Visit: dentalplanmedicare.com

    Medicaid   is a state-run program that provides medical benefits, and in some cases dental benefits, to eligible individuals and families. States set their own guidelines regarding who is eligible and what services are covered. Most states provide limited emergency dental services for people age 21 or over, while some offer comprehensive services. For most individuals under the age of 21, dental services are provided under Medicaid.

    CHIP   helps children up to age 19 who are without health insurance. CHIP provides medical coverage and, in most cases, dental services to children who qualify. Dental services covered under this program vary from state to state.

CMS   (1-800-MEDICARE) can provide detailed information about each of these programs and refer you to state programs where applicable.

5. Charities:

    The United Way  may be able to direct you to free or reduced-cost dental services in your community. Local United Way chapters can be located on the United Way website. 

Also check dentalcharity.info

6. Discount dental plans:

    No, this is not free, however, if you asked around in step 2 (schools) and found a few that would take the discount program, or managed to combine this with #3 or #4 (or all of the above) you can end up with free health care. Need some super low cost dental plans? Check out:
