Late last year, I introduced a program to help people in Encinitas save money at the dentist.
What I don’t think I adequately conveyed at the time is that it actually saves people money on the services they get each and every year.
If you’re like most people, you go to the dentist at least twice a year. You’ll get 2 professional teeth cleanings, a set of x-rays, and 2 exams from the doctor.
All of that usually runs about $400-$500, dependent on the quality of the dentist, the materials they use, etc.
Now, if you’re clever, you may be thinking: What’s the catch? Why do you essentially give a discount to people for things they will come in and get anyway and pay more for?
I’m transparent about this:
- Since this plan is pre-paid for the year, it takes my front office staff less time. Saving time equals less expense to me, and I can pass the savings back to you.
- My staff doesn’t have to spend time dealing with dental insurance companies. Again, saving time equals less expenses to me, and I can pass the savings back to you.
Bottom-line: It really is a good deal, and most certainly a better deal than paying for dental insurance. I’ve done my best to take the hassle out of things and give the people of Encinitas a good deal on dental services they are going to get every year anyway.
If you’re interested in saving money with the Moonlight Beach Dental Savings Plan, simply ask about it it the next time you come in, and you can start saving money on that very visit.
