The Benefits Of Choosing An Out-Of-Network Dentist
Has our practice been recommended to you, but you are hesitant to make an appointment because we are considered out-of-network with your dental insurance? Or do you not have insurance and are fearful of having needed dental work completed due to the overall cost? Insurance is a great option for many of our patients, but lack of insurance or our practice being out-of-network does not mean that we cannot provide the services you need. In fact, many times our patients with dental insurance are actually limited to accepting the care the insurance provider will pay for instead of the treatments they truly need.
An Out-of-Network Dentist Can Be Better for Your Health
Dental insurance is a wonderful benefit for many patients, but it should not be what drives your dental treatment. Many patients don’t realize that dental insurance can often be a handicap, holding them back from the dental treatments they truly need to maximize their oral health. The main goal for an insurance company is to keep costs down, which often comes at the expense of the patient. Insurance companies frequently restrict the quality and types of materials that can be used for treatment.
By choosing an out-of-network dentist, your dentist will have the freedom to treat you according to your dental needs and not follow a protocol that is exactly the same for each patient. The dentist is in full control and is able to choose the procedure and materials that will remedy the problem completely instead of putting a band-aid on the issue.
Transparency is Key
At Ackley Dental Group, we pride ourselves on being truthful and upfront with our patients. We will always fully explain a procedure or treatment plan that we recommend, why it is being recommended, and the overall cost to the patient. We are sure to customize any treatment plan to fit your goals as well as your overall budget. Our reputation means everything to, and we would never perform a treatment without your consent and complete understanding of all aspects involved. We stand by our work and pride ourselves on providing superior dental care and giving you a reason to smile.
