We have all been there. You go in for a routine cleaning and checkup, and discover that there is a significant dental problem that has been lurking in the dark. Now, while significant dental treatment may not be something you are afraid of, the cost that comes with it can often catch you off guard.This is especially true of families where one person may need a filling, and another needs braces. Add onto those expenses the diagnosis of the significant dental treatment you need, and you may be wondering how you will afford the treatment to keep your entire family in good oral health. Dr. Michael Walton and the team at Walton Family Dentistry in Bardstown, Kentucky, understand this, which is why they offer affordable dental membership plans.
In recent years, many dental offices have been looking into how they can make dental care more affordable to individuals and families alike. One method that dental practices have started providing is the in-house membership program. Think of other membership programs, such as Amazon Prime, which offers a slew of benefits for a simple monthly (or yearly) fee. Dental practices that offer memberships are working under this same model. Dental patients will receive a certain array of benefits for a simple monthly (or yearly) fee. These benefits often include preventative care (cleanings and exams), fluoride treatment, oral cancer screenings, periodontal screenings, necessary X-rays, and a discount on restorative treatments. All of this is covered by the fee that is paid.
These dental membership plans are beneficial for patients who do not have dental insurance. Patients can access simple, comprehensive dental coverage at a very affordable price point without having to put off treatment until it becomes more severe and costly. For this reason, patients tend to be more regular, and have better experiences while at the dental office. It is a win-win for the patient and the dental practice.
