  1. CA is one of the most expensive places on earth. First, make sure you come with a very reliable car, you’ll be using it a lot. Then, you need 3 months rent on day one, first, last and a security deposit. A cheap apartment in an iffy area will be minimum $1000/mo. It would be much easier to get your dental training somewhere cheaper and move to CA when you have a job.

  2. Typically we start seeing them at 3 for their first clnnaeig/exam ( m a dental hygienist). Unless they have some sort of cavity, that is the average age for their first dental apppointment.The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends children have a dental home by 1 and an exam. But to be honest, I have never seen a patient younger than 3 in the office and that is usually not the norm.

  3. Currently LASIK is not fully covered by any iuarnsnce. Some will cover up to $1500. Usually with that LASIK centers will have you pay the full amount up front and will give you a receipt to submit to your iuarnsnce company for reimbursement. LASIK is still considered elective surgery. Most centers though offer financing plans (there are some that do 18 months interest free).
