3 Ways to Spot an All in One Dental Provider
Have you thrown in the toothbrush trying to find a dental provider that can make your life easier? It’s no secret that the more dental and medical visits you make, the more time you spend in the car, in waiting rooms, explaining your medical history, filling out paperwork, and writing checks. If you are exhausted just thinking about it, you might want to look for a dental provider that can do it all. While it’s rare, finding an all in one dentist is possible, especially if you live in or around Bismarck. If you do, you are lucky to have access to Dr. Hoerner and his team at Bismarck Advanced Dental and Implants. They offer an all in one approach that puts the patient’s needs first.
How to Spot an All in One Dentist
An all in one dental provider can provide a wide range of dental procedures, a high level of certifications and specialized training, as well as the ability to make dental products in-house rather than using an off-site lab. In short, an all in one dental provider anticipates their patient’s needs and has built their practice to make the patient’s experience easy and stress free. If you are looking for a dental provider that can do it all, here are three things that will tell you right away if they will be a great fit for you and your family.
In-house dental lab
Ordinary dentists do not have the capacity to fabricate things like dental implants, dentures, or other items in-house. Unfortunately, this means the patient is required to book multiple appointments and wear uncomfortable temporary appliances for days or weeks while the dentist waits for the lab to build and ship the custom part. At Bismarck Advanced Dental and Implants we can 3D print customized appliances and restorations on site. This capability saves our patients hours if not days that would be spent in appointments. Our patients often get same-day results due to our advanced technology.
In-house dental savings plan
Another way to spot an all in one dental provider is if they have an in-house dental savings plan. Run of the mill offices may offer third party financing options, and bill insurance to help patients cover unexpected dental costs, but a great dental provider will offer plans without the middle man, incentives for participating in preventive care. At Bismarck Advanced Dental and Implants, we do it all. Not only do we always take care of any insurance billing, and offer CareCredit® third party financing, we have and in-office dental savings plan for patients who don’t have or don’t want traditional dental insurance. Our dental savings plan is a membership plan with benefits that include:
- One low monthly payment
- Coverage for preventive care like cleanings and x-rays
- Discounts on cosmetic and restorative services
- No middle man, just you and the doctor making decisions about your dental care
- No waiting for procedure approval
- Coverage begins instantly
In-house dental savings plans are convenient and cost-effective for the patient and is a sign your provider is putting you and your needs first.
Cutting-edge restorative procedures and advanced training
If your dental provider has advanced training to offer procedures like single tooth or multiple tooth implants or All-on-4 Dental Implants, they are ahead of the game. Often these procedures have to be referred out by general dentists who don’t have the certifications and hours of training like Dr. Hoerner. It’s best to have advanced surgical procedures done by the doctor most familiar with your dental history and who already has a relationship with you as the patient. Also, look for a dentist who has members of the team with advanced skills and training beyond what is required. Team members Kellie and Courtney are prime examples of going above and beyond for their patients.
