Making high-quality dentistry affordable for all patients is one of our goals here at Northpark Dental. To do that, we accept dental insurance and work with third-party financing companies like CareCredit to help our patients get the dental treatment they need when they need it most.
We also offer another option for both adults and children that many of our patients choose even over dental insurance, and that is our dental membership plans. Here's how they work.
Dental Membership Basics in Urbandale
When you choose a Northpark Dental Membership Plan for your family, each person pays one annual membership fee. Depending on your preventive needs, there are two options. The Prophylaxis Plan is designed for adults with good oral health who only need two dental cleanings each year. The Periodontal Maintenance Plan provides up to four cleanings per year for adults who are managing gum disease.
With both plans, your membership fee covers the cost of your cleanings, two examinations, any x-rays needed throughout the year, two fluoride treatments, and one emergency dental visit. You also receive 15 percent savings on ALL dental services offered at Northpark Dental with no limitations. Better yet, dental plan members also enjoy 25 percent off of teeth whitening services and products!
A Northpark Dental Membership Plan makes it easy and affordable for your family to receive the excellent dentistry in Urbandale, IA that they need and want.
What You Don't Have to Worry About With a Northpark Dental Membership Plan
Dental insurance can be a useful tool that helps to defray the out-of-pocket costs of dentistry for families; however, it has its limitations. Here are some of them:
- Deductibles - Most insurance plans require you to pay a deductible before your benefits kick in.
- Waiting periods - Some insurances have waiting periods for major services like dental crowns. You could be waiting months for coverage on the treatment you really need.
- Annual maximums - Dental insurance plans have yearly maximums from $1000 to $2000, meaning that there is no benefit once you've hit this amount.
These are just a few of the stipulations your dental insurance puts in place. If you'd like more information about finding an affordable dentist in Urbandale, IA, contact Northpark Dental today.
