Maintain Regular Cleaning & Exams

One of the easiest ways to save on your dental care is to maintain regular dental cleanings and exams. Coming to the dental office regularly allows us to prevent dental issues or treat dental problems when they are small. Here’s what our dental team will do during a dental cleaning:

  • Remove any tartar or plaque buildup on the teeth to prevent future cavities or gum disease.
  • Polish the teeth to make it harder for plaque to stick to the surface of the teeth
  • Dr. Tocci will exam your mouth for dental issues  

We can even use saliva testing to offer DNA analysis or VELscope oral cancer screenings to check for abnormalities in the mouth.  

Use Your Dental Insurance

About two-thirds of Americans have access to dental insurance. Dental insurance is a great tool because it allows you to have access to free dental cleanings and discounts on dental treatments. We only accept Delta Dental Premier. Most dental insurance providers give you two free dental cleanings a year, so if you haven’t scheduled your second cleaning of the year, you can do it now.

While many of our patients to have access to dental insurance, there is one thing you need to know: You pay monthly premiums for an annual allotment of dollars, but you have to spend those dollars. Most dental insurance providers offer patients $1,000 to $1,500,but you won’t get that money back at the end of the year. That will go back to the insurance companies bottom line, so if you have dental dollars left AND have remaining dental needs, schedule your treatment today.   

Benefit From Promotions or Payment Options

If you have major dental needs, dental insurance may not be able to help much with the overall cost. But we still want you to be able to restore your mouth. We accept all forms of payment, from cash to credit. We’re also offering long-term financing options for patients, as we understand that smile transformations can be expensive. Companies like CareCredit give you long-term zero-percent financing to help you better manage your treatment.

We’ve found that long-term financing works great for patients who need full-mouth reconstructive work like crowns and bridges or even dental implants.

For a limited time, we’re also offering promotions on teeth-whitening (you can save $100 on professional teeth whitening at Tocci Dental Associates) and giving away athletic mouthguards for our new patients.
