Did you recently lose your job because of COVID-19? Do you no longer possess dental insurance for you and your family? While this kind of loss can be devastating, you should know that your dentist in Bergenfield is doing everything possible to provide high-quality dental care at an affordable price. With the Smile Savings Club, you and your family can avoid serious problems and continue to receive the services you need to improve your oral health. Read on to learn more about this unique program and how it can help you get the services you need without breaking your budget.

Why It’s Important to Take Care of Your Oral Health

Although you have lost your job, it is still necessary that you take care of your oral health. Should you forgo proper care or disregard your regular dental hygiene routine, it can result in serious dental emergencies and costly treatments. When your smile is healthy, your immune system remains strong, which is important when it comes to avoiding COVID-19.

What is the Smile Savings Club?

At Washington Dental Associates, you and your family can have greater peace of mind thanks to their Smile Savings Club. This program makes it possible to receive accessible, affordable dental care without insurance. Instead of dealing with co-pays, deductibles, and monthly premiums, this program requires that you pay a one-time annual fee per person in your family.

This fee covers basic preventive care, including checkups and cleanings and dental X-rays. You will also receive substantial discounts should you require a filling, dental crown, or periodontal therapy. This plan does not cover any cosmetic treatments, including teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, or other related services.

What You Can Expect When Enrolling

Currently, there are two types of plans: basic and premium. The basic plan is $300 per year while the premium plan is $540 per year. If you were to total up the amount of all the services you receive, it would be around $1,000. This means families can save thousands of dollars by signing up.

Should you choose to enroll, you must pay for it in full the day you arrive for an appointment. Once you make your one-time payment, the plan will be good for 12 months (not based on a calendar year).

You and your family’s oral health doesn’t have to suffer because you lost your job. Take the next step in caring for those you love by enrolling in the Smile Savings Club.
