Free Dental Clinic Resources

Frugal Tip Tuesday is a weekly
series here at Frugal Farmhouse.
I want to share easy tips and tricks
to help you along your frugal journey.

All over the country there are free Dental clinics, medical clinics, etc. Dentists in my area hold free Dental Clinics for the public a few times a year. Sometimes it is just for children other times it is for everyone. I've found these are not very well advertised. They post it in a few places around town, and let word of mouth do the rest. Once in a while, they release it to the local news, but not often. To find these in your area, check all the nooks and cranny's of your local news paper, bulletin boards in area business, etc.

Also for free medical clinics and free dental clinics state by state check HERE.
*I have not researched all links, only local ones, so PLEASE research fully before making a decision :)*

There are so many resources available no one should go without the care they need.


  1. I'm looking into this! Thanks for the tip!

  2. I have heard of clinics like these but never found one in our area. Heaven knows I could use one since I haven't been able to go to the doctor in over two years. Thank you for posting Brandi! I will have to do more researching.


  3. Wow thanks! Never knew about these. Dentists are sooooo expensive, even with insurance!

  4. I'm shocked that a country as rich as the US (richest country in the world) can't share its resources with the poor, it's supposed to be a christian country????? we have free health etc here! and free dental for seniors, disabled, unemployed people, pregnant women, children, students in full time education and the rest of us have subsidised dental - £15 per treatment/per tooth. So I earn 45K per year and still only pay £15 to get my teeth polished and whitened and my kids had full orthodontist work, braces, straightening and five years of treatment each and it was free. my daughter is 18 and at college, so it's still free until she graduates. It's no wonder people break the immigration rules to get to the UK!

Barn wood reindeer

I was  recently invited to an ornament exchange. We were instructed to create 12 of the same ornaments. We then wrapped one of the ornaments and put the other 11 in a box. We passed around the wrapped ornaments and opened them, sort of like a white elephant exchange. That way we all got to oogle and google  each others ornaments.

I made reclaimed barn wood reindeer. I think they turned out super cute. What do you think? Anyone want a tutorial?

How to Make Buttermilk From Regular Milk

Frugal Tip Tuesday is a weekly
series here at Frugal Farmhouse.
I want to share easy tips and tricks
to help you along your frugal journey.

How many times have you started making something only to realize that little container of buttermilk you bought 6 months ago is expired. Has it really been in there that long?

Here is a quick way to make buttermilk out of regular milk.


-Milk (just under 1 cup)
-1 Tablespoon White Vinegar or Lemon Juice

Put the vinegar (or lemon juice) in the bottom of a liquid measuring cup. Then fill it up to the 1 cup line with milk.

Let it stand about 5 minutes. Then you have Buttermilk! It gets kinda chunky, this is normal. Now you can use it in any recipe just as you would buttermilk.
