Increase patient loyalty — Dental savings plans may be the key

According to a survey of members of :DentalPlans, dental savings plans are a way to increase patient loyalty, and 52 percent of dental savings plan members are loyal to their dentists compared to 37 percent of the general population saying the same.

"Cost is the biggest reason people delay getting the dental care they need," says Howard Cunningham, DDS, owner of Oakland Park Dental in Ft. Lauderdale. "Our office accepts dental savings plans because it saves our patients money on dental care services, helps them maintain good oral health through preventative care, and get treatment right away for dental emergencies. Using a dental saving plan also simplifies the whole process. There are no worries about delayed payments to the office, and the patient can make choices about their treatment without any third party involvement. Dental plans provide a fair process for everyone involved."
