Most people depend on dental insurance to cover most of the costs of dental treatment. But as many have found , dental insurances are either not covering enough of the costs or are excluding their treatment from reimbursement completely due to pre-existing conditions. Premier Smiles Dentistry recognizes the important role dental benefits play in improving access to our patient population and we strive to work with your dental insurance to make sure you get all the benefits you are entitled to . Most plans will cover up to 50-80% of your total treatment costs.
However, we know that costs and insurance should not be the determining factor when deciding to have a much needed dental service. Neglecting even a routine professional cleaning appointment can lead to progression of gum disease, cavities and even oral cancer.
Some ways we try to make dentistry more affordable are:
Minimally Invasive Dentistry : this involves using the latest technology in order to identify a decay on a tooth and restoring it as soon as possible before it needs more extensive treatment like a larger filling or a crown.
Phasing Of Treatment : that most urgent needs are prioritized over ones that can wait.
Offering third party financing: we are contracted with three companies, Carecredit, Chase Financial and Springstone Financial, which can help finance dental treatment and in some cases without interest.
Using Flex Spending : we try to get our patients to plan ahead so they can set money aside for future dental work with their company flex health accounts.
Specials : Our office offers many specials for new patients and/or returning patients. These can typically save you hundreds of dollars off some of our services. Just call and ask what specials we are running .
Discounts : our office offers lower fee programs for those without insurance. Just call us to find out more.
Free Dentistry : once a year, the week before Thanksgiving, our office puts on a free dental clinic for the community. It’s a first come first serve basis and we take care of one pressing dental issue a patient has, at no fee.
