Imagine you’re 25 and fairly new to the working world. You’re covered by your parents’ insurance — but only for a few more months. You don’t have benefits through your own job yet, and when you turn 26, you won’t be covered by a parent’s plan.
Too often, young adults let their dental care lapse at this point. They feel young and healthy, and the idea of acquiring insurance on their own is daunting.
Fast-forward a couple years, and that formerly healthy young patient now has a host of dental problems. There’s a good chance they’ve got a tooth or two that’s giving them pain, because they’ve stopped coming in for their biannual cleanings and checkups.
These young patients end up needing treatment that’s more costly and time-consuming than preventive care would’ve been. This is why dentists sometimes say, “dental care isn’t expensive — neglect is.”
It’s also why Future of Dentistry created a Membership Program. It’s designed exclusively for patients without dental insurance. Our Membership Program is simple, with a flat annual fee and no deductibles.
All three of our Membership plans cover essential preventive care, including:
- 2+ cleanings/checkups
- Diagnostic x-rays
- Unlimited oral exams
- Oral cancer screening
- Intra-oral camera exam
- Laser cavity detection
- Emergency consultations
- Cosmetic consultations
In addition, Members receive at least 15% off numerous services and treatment — ranging from fillings to whitening and beyond. Membership empowers many millennials to maintain a healthy, sparkling smile for years to come.
Our Membership Program isn’t the only solution for 20-somethings who don’t have their own benefits. Whatever you choose, please avoid the temptation to delay dental care. Studies show that poor oral health is linked to a worrisome number of systemic diseases and conditions. To be healthy overall, it’s simply essential to have a healthy mouth.
