Optimal Dental Health Program 2018
We are excited to announce our 2018 Optimal Dental Wellness Program! Please take a moment to review the information. Our team is available to discuss which program may be appropriate for you.
We strive each day to maintain the highest standard of care for our patients. As a member of our dental family, we recognize that you made a conscious choice to maintain your dental health. What we are seeing is that dental benefits are becoming a barrier to achieving optimal dental health. Insurance companies continue to add restrictions and limitations on what they will approve as covered treatment. Therefore, we made a conscious decision to not have our care influenced by insurance companies and have them dictate our patients’ treatment. While insurance companies continue to change their parameters of coverage to be more profitable; we cannot change our philosophy of providing superior dental care for our patients. We value our patients who are committed to their dental health.
Our Optimal Dental Health Program is designed to show appreciation to those patients who share our philosophy for preventive and continued dental health. When problems are detected early, we can be conservative in our care and cost. This savings plan extends a courtesy to those who find routine maintenance and early detection important to their well-being. This prepaid yearly plan offers a mutual understanding that you are committed to our mission and we will continue to be committed to you and strive to provide the latest, unparalleled dental care.
Our intention is to offer a service that serves most of our patients. We understand that these plans may not be for everyone. Other financial options are available for those who may not see a benefit in our supplemental savings plan.
We offer five different programs designed to fit your dental health needs. our team will be happy to review your options.
