The recommended investment in ones dental health can vary greatly. Determining factors include: the treatment plan, insurance, and desired time frame to complete therapy. Our philosophy is to do all we can to ensure finances do not unduly influence our patients’ treatment decisions – affordability should never get between patients and the care they want and deserve, which is why we have assembled a dedicated team who are able to offer a payment solution to meet your unique needs.
The more common dental plans cover preventive services such as regular exams, x-rays, consultations and prophylactic cleanings. Sealants and fluoride treatments are typically covered for children under the age of 16. Standard fillings, simple extractions and mouthguards for patients with grinding and clenching disorders are also covered as these procedures are considered medically necessary to ensure the patient’s welfare. Some insurance providers may forward the payments to us for the following procedures:
- Posterior root canal therapy
- TMJ treatment
- Scaling and root planning (deep periodontal cleaning to improve the vitality of gingiva and retention of the teeth)
- Posterior crowns and bridges
- Crown lengthening procedures
- Anterior region porcelain laminate veneers for severely stained teeth due to trauma or medical conditions
Traditional dental plans do not cover the following procedures:
- Behavioral management
- Nutritional counseling
- Crowns, bridges and veneers for cosmetic purposes
- Whitening treatments
- Gold restorations
In most cases, we are able to begin the dental treatment immediately as we offer affordable financing options often with no up-front cost to the patient. We encourage you to ask questions and choose the financial plan that will best suit your needs. Our team is always available to help you with insurance claims and paperwork.
Making Dentistry More Affordable with Quality Dental Plan
We are proud to offer Quality Dental Plan (QDP) – a dental savings plan for both our new and current patients. Because traditional dental insurance premiums are expensive with extremely limited benefits, we partnered with QDP to create a comprehensive and customized membership program that covers all your preventive care such as cleanings, x-rays and exams, at 100% in our practice. And QDP members also receive valuable benefits on restorative care, like fillings, crowns and implants…even cosmetic dentistry!
In today’s economy, we know that paying out of pocket can be prohibitively expensive, so we have forged this alliance to ensure our patients have access to the dental benefits they want and deserve.
Now, you can take care of your smile – without breaking the bank.
