In-Office Dental Plan
Affordability is often one of the primary concerns patients face when considering a dental treatment plan. Whether they have no dental coverage or are concerned about having to spend too much on top of their monthly premiums, financial worries can often keep patients out of the office until they find themselves in a dental emergency.
As a practice owner, you recognize the value that reliable, returning patients bring to your practice. Not only are they a consistent source of revenue, but they are also more likely to refer family and friends to your care. Offering an in-office dental plan could be the key to converting more patients into loyal regulars.
Many patients do not have dental benefits. The National Association of Dental Plans estimates that up to 40% of Americans lack basic dental coverage. There are a variety of reasons that a patient might not have dental coverage. However, regardless of the cause, a lack of dental benefits is a strong predictor of whether or not a patient will seek regular dental care.
Dental insurance can be a nightmare for both patients and doctors. The increased costs and inefficiency that results from bringing in a third party can be a major inhibitor to patients seeking care. By offering an in-office plan, you can remove this middle man, netting you a higher share of earnings, saving your patient money, and streamlining the payment process. This will allow patients who may have avoided regular examinations and cleanings to receive the care that they need on a consistent basis. Additionally, it may encourage them to seek additional treatment options they might otherwise decline.
