I doubt it – but check with Social Services to see if there is a Rural Health Network dentist in the area – they go on a sliding scale basis (or free) OR check to see if there is a dental college in your area. That is the new place for people to be going to get their dental work done – it’s done by students, supervised by the dental professor, and it’s way cheaper than a regular dentist. Don’t worry, the students have already gone through their learning, it’s just a little practical experience they need. You won’t know the difference between a dental student or the regular dentist.

There is really no way to answer this without knowing specifics such as the vehicle year/make/model, what coverages you have, her GPA, and if your particular insurance company gives discounts for good grades, driver’s education, TeenSmart (check out Adept Driver’s program), etc. There are too many variable, but in general look for a $ 600-1200 yearly increase depending on your particular insurance provider.
Also, unless she’s over 18, most insurance companies won’t allow her to have her own policy because she must legally be an adult to enter into a contract. She would have to be added to whichever parent she resides with (or shares use of a vehicle)/
