How to Save Some Green at your Dentist!

savegreenNo matter what you’re spending your money on, making your money s-t-r-e-t-c-h is important to many families.  We’ve put together a list of tips to enable you to save money at the dentist.

  1. Make sure you maintain regular appointments with your dentist and hygienist.  Doing so can help your dental team spot small problems before they become more serious –  and more expensive.
  2. If you benefit from dental insurance, know what your plan covers and provide this information to your dental office.  Although your dental health care provider will opt to treat the patient (and not the insurance plan) they can help you maximize your coverage based on your specific needs.
  3. Ask questions!  If your dentist is recommending treatment, inquire if there are any other treatment options.  Occasionally,  there may be a less expensive option that could produce a similar result.  Either way, you’ll be more informed on your treatment.

Lastly, take good care of your teeth!  Preventive care such as brushing twice daily and flossing at least once daily will help prevent bigger problems.
