The cost of dental treatments can be incredibly high, even in Dunedin, Florida. That is why the team at Lepore Comprehensive Dentistry can help you maintain your smile with wellness dentistry, in cooperation with our dental savings plans. We want patients to obtain quality dentistry services to improve their oral health and wellness and not be limited by what their dental insurance plans may or may not cover. The cost of dental treatments with a dental savings plan through Lepore Comprehensive Dentistry ensures patients get the care they need without the limitation and barriers of specific benefits often outlined in dental health insurance plans.
Understanding wellness dentistry
Wellness dentistry is another term for preventative oral health care. It includes the treatments you obtain to keep a healthy smile healthy. This includes dental cleanings, examinations, and proactive dental care that is done on a routine basis. Not only does this allow the dental team to catch dental health issues early on for successful intervention, but it builds a lasting relationship between both dentist and patient.
What is a dental savings plan?
A dental savings plan is a specialized annual membership that helps patients pay the cost of dental treatments. Dr. Ryan Lepore and Dr. Erin Dougherty of Lepore Comprehensive Dentistry in Dunedin, Florida, offer two unique membership plans that ensure customization and better coverage than most dental insurances.
Why choose dental savings plans for wellness dentistry?
With dental insurance, many patients experience coverage limitations and maximum allowances each year. While preventative care is controlled by the insurance company and what they will cover, often denying the best care options for a patient’s unique oral health concerns, our dental savings plans ensure you get the care you need for current or pre-existing conditions. We can ensure you get the custom-tailored care you require without the limitations provided by most dental insurance plans.
How much does a dental savings plan cost?
At Lepore Comprehensive Dentistry, we offer two types of dental savings plans, including our standard plan at $429 and our wellness plan at $729.
What is the difference between dental insurance and a dental savings plan?
Dental insurance plans provide full or partial coverage for necessary dental work. In contrast, a dental savings plan reduces or eliminates the cost of needed work and can provide additional coverage or reduce out-of-pocket expenses even for cosmetic treatments–which are elective procedures not covered by most dental insurance plans.
What procedures are covered by a dental savings plan?
The type of dental savings plans a patient obtains will determine the kind of procedures covered. We offer two plans, including our standard dental savings plan and our wellness dental savings plan. The wellness dentistry plan covers more, providing discounts or full cost coverage for some of the following services and procedures:
- Annual salivary testing
- Dental examinations
- Standard or maintenance cleanings
- Oral cancer screenings
- Fluoride treatments
- Dental x-rays
- Take-home whitening kits
Any other procedures not covered or discounted through the dental savings plan can be reduced with a percentage off when completed at our office.
Can I use my dental savings plan at any dentist?
Unlike traditional dental insurance plans, the dental savings plan offered at Lepore Comprehensive Dentistry is only valid at our practice location. We encourage patients to build a lasting relationship with a single dental provider to ensure consistent care and monitoring of one’s oral health and wellness with time.
