I am often told by patients that they have neglected their dental health due to their lack of having dental insurance. We at Loveable Smiles treat all patients whether they have dental insurance or they do not. Everyone who wants to be healthy can obtain treatment.
“Dental insurance” was never intended to improve anyone’s health. Sounds ridiculous, I know, but this is true. All this benefit actually does, is it provides financial benefits depending on the specific policy. Additionally, there are yearly limits that some cause some people to think that they must delay their treatment over several years time to receive their maximum benefits. Unfortunately, stretching the treatment over such a long time allows the problems to worsen, often significantly, and the discomfort and cost increase as well.
While it is nice if someone has dental benefits, in the long run, it is much more important to obtain the absolute best treatment available in a comprehensive way rather than trying to stretch out treatment over several years to receive more insurance benefit.
At Loveable Smiles we strive to help each patient to attain and maintain Optimum Dental Health. This means that any and all existing problems are corrected as well as the removal of any factors which will cause damage in the future – truly preventing problems from happening. After this state of health is achieved, we create a maintenance schedule for each individual so they can prevent recurrence of dental problems like cavities or gum infections. This maintenance program is much like what fitness trainers create for their clients after helping them become physically fit and is personalized for each patient.
It is ironic that there are many things in life that are beneficial and necessary to our health that are not “covered expenses”. That does not mean they are not important or necessary at all. All it means is that that particular policy doesn’t have a financial benefit.
