Providing Quality Dental Care at an Affordable Price

A staggering number of Americans, an estimated 127 million, lack dental insurance. While the recent rollout of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) has increased the availability and affordability of medical coverage, dental benefits continue to be viewed by the public as a luxury, instead of a necessity.

According to the American Dental Association, the ACA is only estimated to cover dental care for about 26 million Americans, mostly children and Medicare recipients, leaving the rest of the uninsured population wondering how to afford basic preventive dental care.

Providing genuine alternatives to traditional insurance is an increasingly important issue within the dental industry, evidenced by the fact that Forbes.com recently published an article titled When You Don’t Have Dental Insurance. The article addresses the growing issue of lack of access to affordable dental care, and suggests patients look for a dentist who offers a membership program, naming QDP as a prime example. Through these innovative programs like QDP, millions of uninsured Americans can now find the necessary dental care they need at a cost they can actually afford.

Dentists realize that with a dental membership plan, they are able to provide quality dental care at an affordable price to a greater number of patients in their communities without having to surrender to the hassles of insurance companies. Dentists are happy and their patients can finally enjoy peace of mind, making QDP a true win-win scenario for both patients and dentists.

The Ultimate Patient Benefit

Did you know that up to 60% of Americans do not have dental insurance? In fact, cost is the #1 reason most people put off dental treatment. When looking to grow your practice, think about how you can reach this segment of the population. How can you best reach those who believe they cannot afford dentistry because of a lack of “coverage”?

By offering an in-house membership program like QDP to patients in your community, you are able to provide them with the benefits they are looking for without hacking away at your profits. Finally, patients have a dentist who welcomes them into the practice despite a lack of dental insurance, and you can attract fee-for-service patients. Patients know that with QDP, they – and their entire family – are able to get quality dental care at a reasonable cost because there’s no insurance middleman.

When someone joins your practice as a QDP member, they are able to access savings and benefits in your practice by paying you directly and in advance – they think of it like a club membership for dentistry! And you know you are giving them what they are really looking for – the ultimate patient benefit: peace of mind. Find out more here.
