Good oral health is essential to your patients’ overall well-being. But, unfortunately, many Americans struggle to cover the cost of maintaining a healthy smile because they don’t have a dental benefit to help them with the cost of quality dental care. These individuals and families without dental benefits tend to visit their dentist less frequently than those who do. As a result, they ultimately miss out on chances to take advantage of preventive care measures before oral health issues arise.
Here are the facts:
- People without the security of dental benefits are more likely to have dentures and undergo extractions.
- They’re also less likely to get the help they need for issues like gum disease.
- In addition, patients without benefits are 67 percent more likely to have heart disease.
- Also, patients without benefits are 29 percent more likely to have diabetes.
Regular dentist visits are crucial to your patients’ oral health.
Getting proper preventative care is the key to taking care of your oral health and staying within your healthcare budget. When you prioritize regular checkups, you can treat minor problems before becoming major issues that are costly, uncomfortable, and inconvenient.
So what’s stopping people from prioritizing routine care? Cost of care is the top reason why people don’t visit their dentist regularly. A dental membership plan can help you get back to visit with your provider on a more consistent basis. You’ll finally be able to see your dental provider so that you can take care of yourself and your smile. Patients with a dental membership plan can use it as often as they need. Unreasonable restrictions or maximum usage limits don’t hold back plan members from getting the care they need.
