2020 has been an incredibly stressful year already, and unexpected dental bills are the last thing anyone needs right now! While delaying check-ups and treatment can cost you much more in the long run, it can also be tough to work dental bills into your budget. So is a dental savings plan a good idea?
Essentially, a well-structured dental savings plan should give you three major benefits:
- Peace of mind
Whether a dental savings plan is structured as weekly, monthly or an annual payment, either way it makes it easier to afford your regular dental treatments. Signing up to a plan makes sure that your dental care is incorporated into your budget. Small weekly payments are especially easy to accommodate without stressing your finances. In addition, some dental savings plans offer discounts on certain treatments, or bonus gifts and rewards as incentives for joining or continuing membership – actively saving you money.
When you join a dental savings plan you don’t have to think about how or when to make payments or appointments because it’s all taken care of. You can quickly and easily set up weekly or monthly automatic payments and then forget about them. You’ll be notified when you are due for your six-monthly or annual check-ups, and your savings plan will take care of the bill.
Peace Of Mind
With busy lives and the added stress and uncertainty that 2020 has brought, joining a dental savings plan means that you don’t have to worry about keeping up with your dental care. You don’t need to stress that delaying your appointments could lead to bigger (and more expensive) problems in your mouth. You can have confidence that your oral health is all up-to-date and there will be no nasty surprises further down the track.
