Don’t Have Insurance? Consider a Plan from a Dentist in Duncanville!

If you don’t have dental insurance, you should know that you are not the only one. In 2016, about 74 million Americans had no dental coverage. This is alarming because those who have dental insurance are more likely to go to the dentist, according to the National Association of Dental Plans. Furthermore, those without dental coverage report higher rates of incidences of illness, including heart disease, osteoporosis and diabetes.

However, that doesn’t mean you can’t benefit from an in-house membership plan at Glow Family Dental. Learn the details from a dentist in Duncanville!

What is a Membership Plan?

A membership plan is a commonly provided alternative to dental insurance. For just one flat annual fee, you can gain access to a wide variety of treatments specifically designed to help you maintain long-term positive oral health. These preventive treatments are considered necessary by dentists and dental professionals alike, and receiving them is as simple as showing up to the office for your scheduled appointment!

Membership plans are an excellent way to save money on the services you need if you don’t have any dental insurance. What’s great about these types of plans is that they are designed to cover not just adults, but children as well. That means getting your whole family covered is a simple and affordable process, not a headache every time you want to see the dentist.

Is a Membership Plan the Same as Dental Insurance?

Membership plans are not the same as dental insurance. For one, membership plans do not make use of co-pays, premiums or deductibles. There’s no annual maximum amount to keep in mind, nor are there any insurance companies to negotiate claims with. Membership plans keep the process of paying for your dental care inside the office and directly with the dentist.

What Do the Plans Entail?

Since Glow Family Dental’s plans are meant to cover the entire family, there are different plans designed to meet those needs. Additionally, those who need periodontal therapy can also take advantage of a plan that caters to their treatment. Take a moment to consider the differences and the cost you pay annually below:
