No Dental Insurance = No Appointment?

Are you avoiding the dentist due to lack of insurance?

Dental-Plan-BenefitsA study from the Institute of Medicine shows that people who do not have dental insurance are 2/3 less likely to have visited a dentist in the last year than those who have dental insurance. This same study shows that most people are aware that their oral health is closely related to their overall health.

So why do so many people avoid going to the dentist?

Not surprisingly, it turns out that cost is the most commonly cited reason for those that do not have dental insurance. But statistics show that the less you go to the dentist, the more it ends up costing you in the long run. It turns out that those being seen less often, by the time they did go in due to pain or infection, the treatment was much more intensive, and costly.

Smile Savers Dentistry in Columbia, Maryland offers several payment options for those in Howard County with and without dental insurance plans. Accepted methods of payment include major credit cards, cash and checks. Low- and no-interest financing options are also available at Smile Savers Dentistry through Care Credit, Springstone Patient Financing and Prosper Healthcare Lending.

If special arrangements are needed for your dental care, please talk to our office manager, Summer Andrade, prior to receiving service. We want to help you get the oral health care and treatment that you need to keep your teeth and gums healthy for your lifetime. Schedule a dentist appointment today in our Columbia dental office at 410-730-6460.
