Regular access to preventive care is one of the best things you can do to protect your smile for tomorrow. Why? Because waiting until a problem pops up could mean that it has had quite some time to advance to a more involved stage. Fixing it could be time-consuming and costly.
Through preventive care, you and your dentist are able to pinpoint concerns before symptoms even develop. This gives you a wider range of options to correct the problem or reverse it. For instance, mild demineralization of your enamel can be solved by using a prescription strength fluoride and modification of your tooth brushing habits. But waiting too long would mean you have to get the tooth filled.
Most insurance companies pay for two preventive cleanings, exams, and necessary x-rays about twice each year (or every 6 months.) After that, they offer partial coverage on things such as crowns, fillings, extractions and dentures, just to name a few.
But what if you don’t have dental insurance?
Going to the dentist when nothing is wrong may seem like you’re throwing your money away. Fortunately, the patients at Marconi Dental Group have a better option – even if they don’t have dental insurance – thanks to our in-house dental plan.
Our in-house plan works just like a private dental insurance policy without all of the bothersome claims and paperwork. If you don’t have a policy or find it difficult to afford one, then our private plan is an excellent option. Plus, with regular access to preventive care, you’re able to limit the amount of restorative treatment your smile needs in the future!
How does it work?
It’s simple. For one annual fee, you access the same preventive benefits of a private insurance plan, like:
- All necessary x-rays
- 2 cleanings per year
- Fluoride treatments
- Complimentary tooth whitening kit
- Free emergency exams and x-rays
Now, let’s say for a minute that you do need to have some work done, either due to lack of insurance or having spent quite some time away from the dental office. If this is the case, Marconi Dental Group plan members also receive an additional 30% off of any treatment (or 10% off of orthodontic care.)
There are no waiting periods or pre-approvals, phone calls to be made or predeterminations – it’s just a plain and simple plan to make your care more affordable.
You might even find that it’s worth dropping your dental insurance plan! Most of our Sacramento area patients save over $500 or more a year by adding the Marconi Dental Plan to their account.
If lack of insurance has kept you from getting the dental care that your smile needs – there’s never been a better time to schedule your checkup with us! Marconi Dental Group is happy to work with you to arrange an individual or family membership with our Marconi Dental Plan and answer any questions that you might have.
