According to a statement released last year by U.S. News & World Report, approximately 40 percent of Americans are currently without dental insurance, leading to a growing gap in the receipt of preventative care. Those falling into this category cite cost and lack of access to coverage as their primary reasons for not having a dental plan. In response to this issue, Dr. Mark Sanford of Monrovia Family Dentistry has launched the practice's revised in-house dental plan. —
Said Dr. Sanford, "Recent legislature changed the way our country views health insurance, but all those regulations fall a bit short when it comes to dental coverage. Many families are now forced to put off much-needed dental care in order to keep up with their medical insurance requirements. At the same time, a number of the dental policies available fail to cover all the treatments patients are bound to need. Our new in-house plan is designed to bridge the gap, making dental care more affordable for our patients."
Monrovia Family Dentistry's coverage plan is an offering available exclusively to the practice's patients. Rather than holding members to deductible requirements and monthly premiums, the plan is based on an annual flat-rate membership fee. Upon payment of this annual fee, patients receive complimentary twice-yearly x-rays, exams and cleanings. A 20 percent discount is applied toward all additional treatments.
The practice provides general, restorative and cosmetic services as well as sedation dentistry for those experiencing excessive anxiety over treatment. Staff members have received additional training in order to cater to pediatric patients. Periodontal therapies and orthodontic services are likewise offered. Emergency care is available both during and after normal business hours.
Concluded Dr. Sanford, "We are proud to offer this from Monrovia Family Dentistry in an effort to encourage proactive dental care. Medical and oral health work in conjunction to create overall wellness, so we believe patients should have equal access to coverage for both. We invite new patients to visit us online to schedule a free consultation and learn more about the services we offer. We also extend a variety of special offers to new and existing patients, which are changed periodically. Additional details are available on our website."
