In-House Dental Plan At Smile Brighter Willoughby Hills – Dr. Michael Stern
In-House Dental Plan at Smile Brighter Willoughby Hills is explained in detail by Dr. Michael Stern in this video. If you are someone looking for In House Dental Plans near Willoughby Hills, OH, Dr. Michael Stern is who you are looking for.
Our In-house dental plan is a great option we started it many years ago and we felt was a lot of patients just because they didn’t have insurance they couldn’t come to the dentist.
What we have seen now is that the dental insurances are a pain so little or so many stipulations and patients get frustrated with them so with a lot of people working at home or for themselves we are finding that this In-house plan is gaining in popularity.
We have numerous patients on it and out of everyone that is on it we have seen only one or two of them over the years who have not resigned. About 90% of people are resigning and their family members are joining it to because there is no waiting period and limited exclusion of options. We are at least providing them care covered 100%.
With this plan, you get two cleanings anytime in the year, unlike standard insurance, a lot of them have a 6 months clauses in there. You get exams again two per year anytime. You get your cavity detecting x-rays and even diagnostic x-rays which some insurances do not cover them at 100%. You get full mouth x-rays which we call panoramic x-rays.
Also, get fluoride which again most insurance standard plans do not cover it for adults. Fluoride is important for decay reductions and cutting down on those cavities that you have to come back for.
In addition to that, you also get 15% off practically all our other fees. The only exclusions are cosmetics likes veneers, even Ozone you get $500 off. So it is a really good benefit that has all included.
