Managing Cost For Dental Care

added on: August 3, 2012

A healthy, attractive smile is a major player in your well-being. It affects your appearance, self-esteem and self-confidence, and even impacts your overall health. Eating, smiling, speaking, laughing and even your quality of sleep are all related to your oral health.

According to a survey that asked readers to describe the dental health and cosmetic treatments they received in the last five years, cost was given as the biggest reason for delaying care. According to the survey, conducted by the Consumer Reports National Research Center, cost was cited as a barrier by 43% of readers who delayed treatment.

Some of those with insurance coverage said they had put off a treatment because they had used the maximum amount their insurance plan would cover for the year. Twenty-four percent said they delayed treatment because insurance wouldn’t cover the procedure.

Although dental insurance is designed to help you manage typical requirements for dentistry, most plans are not structured to cover treatment that will prevent problems from getting worse later or from occurring altogether in the future. Rather than allow dental insurance to dictate how you attend to your oral well-being, we have several payment options that are easy to manage for most budgets. Plus, there is no down payment and no interest charged for the first year.

If you have dental needs now, remember that oral health problems tend to require more treatment time and greater expense the longer treatment is delayed. Let’s discuss your overall oral health needs and determine the fees, insurance coverage (if applicable), and a payment plan that will work for you. Through this, you can enjoy a healthy, appealing smile now while easy payments are made over time.
