When you don’t have dental insurance, it can make paying for dental care significantly more difficult and expensive. For some, it can make treatment completely out of reach, even for the most basic forms of care. Long-term oral health requires routine exams, cleanings, and X-rays, but that doesn’t mean you should have to break the bank in the process. Not only can you afford the most basic services with a dental savings plan, but you can even save on other treatments, including those not typically covered by traditional insurance.
What Plans at Larry Young Dental Offer
At Larry Young Dental, we offer what is called a “VIP Membership Plan.” In this plan, you can control the cost of your dentistry for just one low annual fee. Not only are you guaranteed all the preventive care you need to stay healthy throughout the year, but you don’t have to deal with deductibles, annual maximums, or authorizations.
Simply put, you have three plans to choose from:
Black Plan – $480/yr – includes two regular cleanings, fluoride treatment, routine exams, bitewing X-rays as needed and 15% off basic dental services
Teal Plan – $680/yr – Includes everything from the black plan plus up to four cleanings (regular or periodontal) and 20% off basic dental services
Gold Plan – $880/yr – Includes everything from the teal plan plus $500 off Invisalign and snore appliances
With these plan breakdowns in mind, those with and without insurance can benefit.
How It Helps Those Without Insurance
While dental insurance can make treatments more affordable, it may still not be cheap enough for others. If you find yourself struggling to pay a monthly premium or you have a high deductible, our VIP Membership Plan can work to reduce the weight of costs off of you and your family. Plus, you don’t have to deal with the traits that come with traditional insurance. Keep in mind that our VIP plan is not a form of dental insurance.
When you’re guaranteed a certain set of treatments, it makes your long-term oral health far more predictable. More predictable preventive care means a lower chance of needing major restorative or emergency care later. It also means lower long-term costs on dental services, which may be especially ideal if you have a family.
How it Helps Those WITH Insurance
While your current dental insurance plan cannot be combined with our VIP Membership Plan in any way, it doesn’t mean you can’t still benefit from becoming a member. For one, the only exclusions are surgical procedures and implant hybrid bridges. That means that cosmetic treatment, a dental service notoriously never covered by traditional insurance can be discounted under this plan. Whether you want to whiten your teeth or make them straighter through Invisalign, this is a great way to do it even if you have insurance.
