As the past few months in politics have proven, health insurance is not an issue to be taken lightly. Amazingly enough, in the countless discussions that have taken place over healthcare, dental insurance has never been mentioned as a concern. This is despite the fact that poor oral health can lead to rapid decline of overall physical health and wellness. Millions of Americans each year struggle to obtain the dental care they need due to a lack of insurance or coverage, but the good news is that many different dental offices offer payment plans and discounts for patients paying out of pocket. This makes it possible for all people in all insurance situations to seek the help they need.
At Obrochta Center for Dental Health, no patient gets left behind thanks to the Smile for Life Plan. This dental discount program makes it possible to pay one simple annual cost in order to receive up to 100 percent discounts on all major dental services.
The Costs and the Benefits
One adult only has to pay $340 per year to be enrolled in the Smile for Life Plan. That’s a flat fee, so you never need to worry about deductibles, hidden fees, yearly maximums, or waiting periods. Any child under the age of 14 is only $199. For this low cost, you are able to enjoy 2 regular dental cleanings per year, 2 oral exams per year, 1 fluoride treatment per year, a full-mouth series of x-rays once per 3 years, bite-wing x-rays once per year, diagnostic periapical x-rays as needed, emergency exams, an oral cancer screening once per three years, and consultations at a full 100 percent discount! Two periodontal maintenance cleanings are offered at a 50 percent discount, and more complicated procedures like crowns, bridges, prosthetics, veneers, periodontal scaling, and root planing receive a 15 percent discount.
The importance of dental health cannot be understated, so if you don’t have access to dental insurance, this plan can keep your mouth health in an affordable and reasonable way.
