Dental Membership Plans to Keep You Smiling

membership plans to keep you smiling - Dental Reflections DublinDental Membership Plans at Dental Reflections

Is the lack of dental insurance keeping you away from seeing a dentist every 6 months? We have a solution for you! We are now offering our dental membership plans that give an option of paying upfront or month to month for your yearly dental care needs. In addition to 30% savings when you sign up, you will receive an additional 10% off of restorative dental services needed.

Preventive Care

Dentistry is all about preventive care. We know it is important to see a dentist, but most of us don’t because our teeth “feel fine.” This is the misconception most people have. A cavity or gum disease typically do not display symptoms until they are bad, really bad. At this point, you are now going to have to spend more time and money in the dental chair to play catch up. If a cavity is caught when it is small, it can be fixed easily with a one or two surface filling. This means less money, less time in the dental chair, and less chance of post-op sensitivity. The same goes with gum disease. This is when the foundation or bone around the teeth that hold and support them becomes affected. Lack of regular dental cleanings, genetics, and poor oral hygiene can all contribute to gum disease. This is why preventive care is SO important. It will save not only your teeth but money in the long run. Tooth replacement is so much more expensive than preserving and maintaining what you have. Our goal as dental providers is to give you all of the tools necessary to do just that.

Why a Dental Membership Plan?

It is estimated that 60% of Americans do not have dental insurance. This means a large percentage of that 60% probably do not see a dentist. Sure, you could go to one of those offices that sends a coupon in the mail and says cleaning, exam, and X-rays for just $69. The worst part is that for this price, the office is trying to see as many patients they can in a day to make up for the discount they are offering. Keep in mind, they need to make a profit to operate effectively. Unfortunately, in most of these cases, the dental care is sub-par, and they are not as focused on building rapport with a patient or providing the best dental care they can but seeing as many patients as possible to attempt to make a profit after practically giving away their services.

We operate differently here at Dental Reflections Dublin. From the moment you walk in the door, our goal is to create the best experience possible for you. This means a friendly greeting by our front office, no wait times in the waiting room, not rushing in the treatment rooms, and really taking the time to address your dental needs, questions and concerns. We are committed to provide comprehensive treatment to all of our patients and give them the best dental care they deserve. The ease of signing up for a dental membership plan and the option of month to month payments for the year makes it more affordable than ever to see a dentist.

Are You Getting the Most Out of Your Dental Benefits??

dental benefits expire - Dental Reflections DublinAre You Getting the Most Out of Your Dental Benefits??

As the end of the year approaches, we tend to think of everything that needs done before the new year comes. Our schedules tend to get busier, and things more hectic with the holidays right around the corner. Your health remains important all year long but is sometimes put on the back burner. Do you have dental benefits remaining for the year you have not used?

Why You Should Use Your Dental Benefits

In 2017, studies show that 1 in 4 Americans who have dental insurance say they haven’t been to the dentist in the past 12 months for regular checkups or cleanings due to cost. Did you know that preventive care, which means your cleaning, exam, and x-rays are typically covered at 100% with dental insurance?! That’s right, 100%!! This means no out of pocket for you at your first visit. If you have fillings or other dental work that needs to be done, you will have to pay some out of pocket. Here at Dental Reflections Dublin, we will tell you what that “something” is because we do complimentary insurance benefits check to see what your coverage is for all the services we offer. That means there are no surprises.

Get the Most Out of Your Dental Benefits!

If you are paying for dental insurance, there is no reason you should not be taking full advantage to maximize those benefits each year. In January, everything resets. That means if you do happen to need a lot of work done, we can maximize you out for this year then start over with new benefits at the start of the new year so that your out of pocket is much less. Listen, we are on your side. We don’t like delivering bad news or going over financials, but it is a necessary evil. We just don’t want you to literally flush your money down the toilet by not using a dime of your benefits you paid for all year long. Call us today to get on the schedule in 2019 if you haven’t been to see us yet!!

No Dental Insurance? No Problem.

One of the biggest limits of access to care for dental treatment is no dental insurance. If your employer doesn’t offer it or you don’t qualify for it, what are the options? What about if you are self-employed? Dental treatment can be very expensive and it is typically one of the most common forms of healthcare to be put off until there is pain involved.

Your dental health is the key to your overall health.

We had a patient tell us a story about a family member that was very ill and they couldn’t figure out what was wrong. She was losing her hair and her health was going downhill. She had seen a doctor and they were unable to pinpoint anything specific. She decided to see a dentist and found out she had an abscessed tooth that was causing an infection throughout her entire body. Once she had the tooth fixed she stopped losing her hair and her health significantly improved. This is just one of many examples that could be used to show the value in dental health.

Other payment options

Our office put together a dental savings plan for those without dental insurance to allow for the opportunity to still see a dentist at an affordable price. Additionally, it covers 2 cleanings, X-rays, 2 exams and all of our additional record collecting we do at each visit. The plan is good for one year after the date of purchase. We have separate savings plans for kids, adults, and those that require special maintenance cleanings if they have gum problems. An additional 20% off is given for further dental treatment needed like fillings and crowns.

Our hope is to give everyone the access to dental care that they deserve. You can find the prices to the different plans under the insurance tab on our website – then click reflections savings plan. Call us today to schedule an appointment or to ask any questions that you may have. 614.799.5576

Don’t forget to use your dental benefits before the end of the year.

We know it’s a really busy time of year for everyone. The last thing on your mind in-between holiday shopping, parties, family gatherings, and break from school is scheduling a dentist appointment.

Of course we’re big fans of regular dental check ups and great oral health care. But we don’t expect everybody to be as passionate about dentistry as we are. However we still want to talk to you about your dental benefits and why you should use them before the year is out.

The way that most dental insurance companies operate, is they give you two free teeth cleanings per year. If you don’t happen to use those cleanings, you lose them. That’s right, they don’t roll over into the next year. Once they are gone, you can’t get them back. So if you think about what you pay for dental insurance each year, and calculate the value of a dental cleaning visit, you’re more than make your money back with just one dental cleaning. The fact that your insurance carrier gives you two per year, it’s a no-brainer.

If you live in the Dublin area and are looking for a dentist that’s in network with your insurance provider give us a call at dental reflections. Our friendly staff will be happy to find out what insurance provider you have and let you know if we are in network.

So what does in network mean?

A good way to explain what in network means is to first tell you what out of network means.

Here is an example:

Let’s say you visit your Dublin dentist and the total charge for a cleaning x-ray and exam is $400. Unfortunately you won’t get a discount because the dentist you are visiting is out of network with your insurance provider. What happens is your insurance provider will pay a portion of that visit maybe $200, however you are then responsible for the rest of the bill.

If you’re Dublin Ohio dentist is in network with your insurance provider, can you schedule a dental cleaning, exam and x-ray. The cost will still remain the same, a total of $400. The benefit of being in network is your dentist and insurance provider have worked at a discount on top of The amount your dental insurance covers. Often times this covers the entire visit at no charge to you.

If you’re still not sure whether or not your insurance provider is accepted with Dr. Rudi, don’t worry, you can simply give us a call and will be happy to take the information on your insurance card and let you know whether or not you are in network and what your out-of-pocket cost will be. Or you can call the number on the back of your insurance card and they’ll be able to tell you as well.

So what are you waiting for, you’ve got three weeks left make that phone call use your benefits and come get those pearly whites ready for the new year!
