’Tis the season for New Year’s resolutions. According to one poll, half of Americans are focusing on shoring up their finances by cutting back on spending when possible. At Ocean View Dental Care, we want to help you meet your financial goals. One way to reduce your healthcare spending is by joining our Dental Membership Plan.
The exclusive plan gives you access to preventive dental care at no additional cost. Corrective services are discounted 10%. Members of our plan enjoy no waiting periods, no benefits maximums, and no burdensome claim forms to file. Read on to learn how you and your family can enjoy cost savings in 2020.
Benefits of Dental Membership Plans
Our low-cost membership plans are easy to use and understand. Individual plans are $285 per adult per year. Individual + Spouse plans are $495 per year. Families can add additional children (14 and under) for $125 per child. Older children (15 to 26) can enjoy this plan for $165 per year.
Once you’ve made your annual payment, you can enjoy preventative care throughout the year for no additional cost. Those savings can add up when you consider the out-of-pocket expenses non-members pay. These treatments are included in our membership plan.
- Exam ($128 regular fee)
- X-rays ($294 regular fee)
- Adult cleaning ($108 regular fee)
- Child cleaning ($88 regular fee)
Exams and x-rays for a family of four would run $1,688, based on our fee schedule. You can see how quickly a membership plan can lead to serious savings. If you do require treatment, you can enjoy a 10% discount for all your procedures with no maximum cap on benefits.
What about dental insurance?
Dental insurance and membership plans are similar in some ways and different in others. Insurance plans require monthly payments and include maximum benefit caps. If you plan on moving, dental insurance may be a good option since you won’t know who your next oral healthcare provider will be.
If you live in or around San Clemente, our affordable dental membership plan is the better choice. By handling all of our benefits in-house, we are able to provide greater savings than dental insurance plans can. Insurance providers have to pay for staff and overhead. We use our existing dental team. Our membership plan allows our patients to access preventative treatments at a reduced rate. By preventing future dental problems, our membership plan can save your family hundreds or even thousands of dollars.
How can I get the most out of my dental membership plan?
Once you sign up for our exclusive and affordable dental membership plan, one of our team members will schedule your twice-a-year cleanings as well as your exam. If we see any dental problems during your visit, we can address those issues as they arise. Minor cavities can usually be treated for a low fee. The key is early detection and prevention — two areas that our dental membership plan focuses on!
In between visits, we ask that our patients brush at least twice a day using a soft-bristle toothbrush. Flossing and therapeutic mouthwash are also great preventative measures. If you experience a toothache, let our office know. If your goal is to save money in 2020, it’s important to remember that early treatments are always more affordable than putting off dental problems.
