Saratoga Springs Family Dentistry practice aims to put people at ease in regard to their dental health, even if they have lost their insurance.
Office Manager Bonnie Symon said all seven locations are taking part in a program that offers affordable dental care to those who may have lost their dental insurance or who never had it at all.
“We have had a great response to this, with a lot of people signing up. It’s a wonderful option for people and helps to give them some assurance that they can get the care they need without worrying about how to pay for it,” said Symon.
Symon said with COVID-19 pandemic, many patients found themselves losing their insurance and with that came the worry of how to find quality dental care that they can afford. She said they have reached out to local employers who have been vulnerable to the shaky economy, especially small businesses.
The plan offers member-only free exams, x-rays, and cleanings, plus 15 percent off all other dental services. There are three plan options for routine cleanings and exams, diagnostic X-Rays, and discounts on treatment.
Symon said enrollment takes effect immediately without the hassle of claims and insurance. The annual plans range from $299 to $599, depending on a person’s age and needs. The plans cover up to two exams, routine cleaning, necessary X-rays and youth sealants. There is also a periodontal plan, discounts on whitening and invisalign and discounts on sleep apnea appliances.
Symon said Saratoga Springs Family Dentistry plans to continue the program for as long as there is an interest. It is available at the Saratoga Springs office, 286 Church St., as well as their six other locations across the area.
“We have no plans to end the program. It has been beneficial to many patients,” said Symon.
