  1. I don’t spend a lot on my tooth.

    price depends on how greedy the Dentist is

  3. Funny, but here in Canada I guess it is. Dental is not part of the state run health system. Neither is optometry, come to think of it, so I guess they are both “luxuries” from a political stand point.

  4. it seems a luxury to those who cannot afford to go…

  5. Unfortunately, ANY dental care other than a toothbrush and some toothpaste is a luxury for many people in our country.

    If medical care in general was more affordable to those without insurance I am sure it would be utilized more often. Did you know there are THOUSANDS of people in our country that DIE every year of treatable ailments because they could not afford medicine or care? Pretty sad for a “civilized country” don’t you think?

  6. Luxury good…depends on the work being done: whitening or veneers vs. cavity repair and root canal, the first two being luxury and the last two being necessity.

    Usually the quantity of dental care demanded is very responsive to a change in price. People will have less done the more it costs, unless they can afford it.
