| New York City College of Technology: Good for basic dental cleanings and optometry. They do dental cleanings and x-rays for ~$15, and provide a report listing any work (fillings, etc) that need to be done, decreasing the chance of being overcharged for unnecessary work at dentists. They also have an optometry program with low-cost glasses.
