Dental Membership Plan

Thank you for your interest in our Dental Membership Plan! This is an exclusive, in-office membership plan being offered to both our patients without dental insurance and patients with dental insurance who would like to consider making a change. What is a dental membership club? Like Sam’s Club or Costco, members pay a membership fee for the ability to purchase a product (or treatment in this case) at a reduced price, which gives patrons an opportunity to enjoy added value in a particular business or office by getting the same products you could find elsewhere, but at a more affordable price. With the Dental Membership Club, your membership fee will include 2 cleanings and exams and 1 set of bitewing x-rays to be used in a consecutive 12 month period, plus any fluoride treatment should your provider deem it necessary. Thereafter, should you need or want any other treatment during your active membership, you will pay the reduced fee of 85% of our normal fees rather than 100%*.

How is the membership club different than purchasing a dental insurance policy? There are many differences that set us aside from a traditional dental insurance plan. First, you will receive the care that both you and your provider decide is best for your health, not the care that an insurance company dictates. Our country’s health insurance industry is forcing more and more patients to “settle” for a lower quality of care because they are unwilling to provide benefits that are in their clients’ best interest. Furthermore, many insurance carriers list services that they will cover, but have many “loopholes” that will allow them to not have to pay for these same services. Many insurance companies “bump down” or reduce the benefit they will pay for a procedure if there is an alternative treatment available, regardless of how your smile will look with this lower quality and/or out dated treatment

Second, you will only pay for what you use, and it will be at a reduced rate! You won’t be paying insurance premiums “just in case” you might need dental treatment other than preventive care, which will save many patients quite a bit of money each year. Third, there are NO deductibles and NO waiting periods. Many patients take out dental plans only to find out that they must wait 3-6 months or even a year before they are allowed to have certain procedures covered. We never know when a tooth is going to need immediate attention, and very rarely can we wait even a week, never mind 3 months to a year to have treatment just so our dental insurance will contribute to the cost.

There are many other benefits of the Dental Membership Plan, including:

-NO “pre-existing conditions”
-NO pre-authorizations for any treatment. You’re treatment WILL be covered and you will know exactly what it will cost with NO surprises
-NO benefit maximums; most insurance plans will only pay out a maximum of $1,000 per patient per contract year.
-NO “loopholes”, such as missing tooth clauses, white fillings being paid at the lower benefit of silver fillings, bridges being paid at the lower benefit of a partial denture, etc., with patients paying the difference in the cost of procedures
-NO limits on periodontal treatment
And again,

-NO deductibles and NO waiting periods!

How much are the membership fees? We’re glad you asked! Our current, full price fees for 2 cleanings, 2 exams, and 1 set of bitewing x-rays is $292.00 per adult. However, because we are bundling these services into one simple fee, we are reducing that price to $248.00 per adult, and $198 per child. So as an adult, you will pay $248.00 for your membership for your preventive care, and should there be any additional need for treatment that may arise, you will receive the benefit of getting those services at the reduced rate of 85% of our normal fees (including any cosmetic procedures!).

Extended Membership Fees are:

Adult $248
Adult & Spouse $467
One Child $198
Each additional child $186

We are so very excited to offer this opportunity to our patients! We hope you will take advantage of this chance to save on your dental health needs. Please spread the word! We are accepting new patients and they, too, may take advantage of these savings!

*Reduced prices do not apply toward any retail products such as electric toothbrushes, mouthwash, toothpaste, etc., as we already offer these at our actual cost as a courtesy to our patients. Also, senior citizen discounts are not offered in conjunction with the Membership Plan.
