If you are like most people, you want to be smart about how you spend your money on health care. Here are a few tips to help you make the wisest decisions when it comes to your dental needs.
1. Dental Insurance
If you are fortunate enough to have dental insurance through your work, be sure to thank your employer! However, unlike medical insurance, most dental plans are designed to assist in paying for dental treatment like a scholarship helps pay for college. It’s there to assist, it’s there to help, but it doesn’t typically cover everything. Know your policy and take advantage of everything it has to offer!!
2. Payment Plans
If you don’t have insurance, or if your dental needs are not covered very well by your dental plan, there is another option to make your financial responsibilities much more affordable and convenient! We work closely with Care Credit, the country’s top provider of health care financing. Often CareCredit can be utilized interest free!! So, if you find yourself needing extensive dental work to stay healthy, or restore your health, know that there are options to have your health and your financial security too!!
3. The BEST Way To Save Money On Dental Treatment!
Believe it or not, the absolute best way to be smart about your dental health care is to commit to taking care of your teeth and gums in the best way possible! Proper brushing, flossing, and regular dental cleanings and examinations will save you more money in the long run than anything else you can do!!
According to The American Dental Association advisor Dr. Matt Messina,
“The absolute cheapest way to make your own dental experience better is to commit to brushing, flossing your teeth and eating a healthy diet. Those are pennies a day that breed dollars of savings later on. The cheapest cavity is the one you never get.”
