Dental Insurance vs. In-House Dental Savers Plan

Some patients delay necessary dental treatments because they’re worried about cost. At Queensboro Plaza Dental Care in Long Island City, NY, we strive to offer high-quality dental care that is affordable. We offer a variety of financial options, such as our in-house Dental Savers Plan and dental insurance. In this blog post, we discuss the difference between these two options.

Dental Savers Plan

A Dental Savers Plan is a good fit if you are uninsured or underinsured. While you can only use it at the practice that provided it, these plans offer similar benefits to insurance but are less complicated (and are often less expensive!).

With our in-house Dental Savers Plan, you pay an annual fee in exchange for benefits like two routine cleanings and exams, fluoride treatment, necessary X-rays, and two emergency visits and consultations. You’ll also receive a 15% discount on all other services! There are no deductibles, annual limits, waiting periods, or limitations based on preexisting conditions.

Dental insurance

The main difference between an in-house membership plan and dental insurance is that the latter is not limited to one dentist. Depending on your plan, you may choose an in-network primary dentist but the insurance provider offers the benefits. Most insurance plans cover preventive care, so be sure to take advantage before the benefits reset each year.

We know insurance can be complicated, so we’re happy to verify your coverage and track your claims for you. Before treatment, we’ll discuss your coverage and your out-of-pocket costs. Simply bring your insurance card to each appointment so we can update your file. We’re in-network with insurance plans such as MetLife, Cigna, and Aetna. Please get in touch with our office if you don’t see your plan listed on our financial page.

Dr. Nguyen and his staff are extremely competent, friendly and professional. He is very thorough and explains everything very clearly. Finally I feel like I am in good hands when it comes to dental care.

Great overall experience getting a dental cleaning. Very friendly staff, beautifully designed office, and a comfortable experience watching calming Netflix nature programming while in the chair. Complimentary beverages are in the waiting room and so is a little play area for kids.It felt to me that this was a patient-focused family practice as opposed to a cold, corporate dental mill trying to churn through as many patients as possible.I’ll definitely be coming back here for all my dental needs and I highly recommend.

Dr. Nguyen and his staff are very welcoming and they provide an excellent experience every time I visit. I’ve only been here twice for annual checkups but would definitely consider and recommend this place to anyone who appreciates good customer experience and a very thoughtful approach to making sure that you feel at home. I have some procedures set up for later in the month and I must actually be the only person in the world actually looking forward to a dentist appointment.

Very confident after leaving the office that my teeth are in greatttt hands. Above and beyond patient care. Very informative visits. A sense that they genuinely care about patient concerns. Added helpful guidelines I took home with me to reach dental hygiene goals before my next visits. Highly recommended you leave your old scary dentist ! 😁😁
