When choosing to sign up for healthcare plans, many people consider only the medical aspects. They give little or no attention to dental care. They don’t realize that their oral health is important to their whole body’s health. Dental insurance can help pay for the majority of procedures and can be a godsend should you encounter large invoices.
The office of Capitol Smiles participates in many plans from major insurance companies. Our goal is to make your and your family’s visits to us as easy and stress free as possible. We offer a full range of dental services, and with that comes peace of mind knowing that your dental insurance will cover the costs in full or in part.
The Centers for Disease Control conducted a recent National Health Interview Survey that stated that up to 33 percent of Americans haven’t gone to a dentist in the past year. The American Dental Association says that 40 percent of those people who are adults haven’t seen a dentist due to financial reasons. Potential patients see the cost as prohibitive, even for a basic cleaning.
But everyone should realize the importance of maintaining healthy teeth and gums, and know that twice-yearly cleanings and check-ups are crucial. Your dentist can spot concerns about which you may be unaware. A host of dental issues, such as oral cancer, gum disease and cavities, aren’t evident to a patient until they prompt pain, are visible or have progressed to an advanced stage. Which is why regular visits to a dentist for cleanings and X-rays are highly recommended. Your dental professional will advise you on the schedule that’s optimal for you.
We at the office of Capitol Smiles are dedicated to providing the highest quality of skilled dental care while accepting many insurance plans. We encourage you to check out the many available insurance options and choose the one that’s right for you. We look forward to having you as a patient!
