A report in The Journal of the American Dental Association (JADA) shows that dental benefits play a significant role in meeting the dental needs of children. The authors examined data from more than 65,000 participants and found - not surprisingly - that kids enrolled in dental care plans were less likely to experience delayed care, had fewer dental problems, less severe problems, and lower treatment costs than those without coverage. Unfortunately, not all families can afford dental insurance for their children. That's why Raleigh dentist Raleigh dentist Jeff M. Morrison created the St. Mary's Street Dental Savings Plan.
The Plan is $375 per year and includes:
- Two examinations,
- Two cleanings,
- X-rays, and
- Two fluoride treatments for children under age 14.
Families with children enrolled in the plan save $101 per child off out-of-pocket expenses. Additionally, Plan members receive a 15% discount on all other procedures such as fillings, sealants, wisdom teeth removal and emergency exams.
The Plan is simple and straightforward - there are NO yearly maximums, deductibles, waiting periods, forms to fill out, exclusions, age restrictions, or enrollment periods (join anytime!) - just GREAT dental care at a cost you can afford.
At Jeff M. Morrison & Assoc., DDS we LOVE our younger patients. From first tooth visits, to teens getting their wisdom teeth removed - we handle it all. Our staff understand how important it is for your child to have a good relationship with their dentist, and a positive experience at their dental visits. This is key to establishing good oral hygiene habits early on, and can impact a child’s dental health for their whole lives. We take pride in our gentle approach, making sure that children are comfortable and relaxed during their visit. Our Dental Hygienists are trained to teach oral hygiene skills to children of all ages. We often hear from parents that their children like coming to the dentist!
