How to Save Money on Dental Care

If you are like most people, you love to save money! And we all know that health care can be expensive.
But, skipping the dentist’s chair, like skipping the doctor’s office when
you’re sick, to save money can have major repercussions on both your health and your wallet.
Even if you have dental insurance, your copayments and deductibles can quickly add up. But putting off dental care can lead to bigger problems. Left untreated, a small cavity can eventually lead to tooth loss, an abscess to a major infection. Finding ways to get affordable dental care now will save your mouth and your money in the future.
Our patients often ask us how they can receive the highest quality care in the most cost-efficient manner. Here are some suggestions for you.
Dental Insurance:
If you are fortunate enough to have dental insurance, be sure to thank your employer! However, unlike medical insurance, most dental plans are designed to assist in paying for dental treatment, not cover most or all of it.
At Petaluma Dental Group we will work closely with you and your plan to maximize your benefits and give you the best estimate possible. Our front desk team will be glad to assist you with any questions you have and help make your dental care as affordable as possible.
Payment Plans:
If you don’t have insurance, or if your dental needs are not well covered by your plan, we are glad to offer you monthly payment options through Care Credit, the country’s top provider of health care financing. Many times we can offer payments that are interest free!!
We also offer an in-office preventative care plan called Plan for Health.
We have several plans that allow you to keep up with your oral health at a price you can afford. Please ask us for more details.
The BEST Way to Save:

The number one way to save money on dental treatments…a commitment to great oral hygiene! Proper brushing, regular flossing, and eating a healthy diet are key. Together with regular cleanings and exams will save you the most money in the long run!
