You should check out this website, It is not insurance but a medical/dental discount plan. It allows you to get discounts for dental, vision, chiropractic, prescription and physician visits. The plans start at $14.95/month for individuals or $19.95/month for an entire household up to 20 people relat…ed or not. The dental discounts are up to 80% depending on your treatment and you get the vision, chiropractic AND pharmacy discount plans with the dental for the same monthly price. If you have any other questions about the plan you can email me. If you would like me to, I could check the participating dentists in that area, but I would need a zip code or address. They also have medical plans for as little as 29.95 /month. Let me know! Good Luck... The website is: www.DeliveringOnThePromise.com/nicolec. my email: Dental_talk@scentfuldesigns.com ( Full Answer )
Answer . A dental hygienist is the step bellow a dentist and requires two years training.. They can give fillings but a dentist gives the hyginist a treatment plan for the patient.. A Hygienist earns about 30,000 a year and a dentist earns about 50,000 a year.. Answer . Wow, the above ans…wer is a little bit off... the salaries might have been correct about 15-20 years ago.. The short answer is that a dental hygienist has about 3-4 years of college, mostly does teeth cleanings and periodontal treatment (does not USUALLY do fillings except for in a couple of states) and can earn about $65,000-75,000 per year on average if working full time.. A dentist goes to college for 8 years, does all aspects of dentistry that he is comfortable attempting and usually makes a lot more than a hygienist...double or more...usually well over $100,000. Answer . Dentist . Dentists diagnose and treat problems with teeth and tissues in the mouth, along with giving advice and administering care to help prevent future problems. They provide instruction on diet, brushing, flossing, the use of fluorides, and other aspects of dental care. They remove tooth decay, fill cavities, examine x rays, place protective plastic sealants on children's teeth, straighten teeth, and repair fractured teeth. They also perform corrective surgery on gums and supporting bones to treat gum diseases. Dentists extract teeth and make models and measurements for dentures to replace missing teeth. They also administer anesthetics and write prescriptions for antibiotics and other medications.. Dentists use a variety of equipment, including x-ray machines, drills, mouth mirrors, probes, forceps, brushes, and scalpels. They wear masks, gloves, and safety glasses to protect themselves and their patients from infectious diseases.. Dentists in private practice oversee a variety of administrative tasks, including bookkeeping and the buying of equipment and supplies. They may employ and supervise dental hygienists, dental assistants, dental laboratory technicians, and receptionists. (These occupations are described elsewhere in the Handbook. ). Most dentists are general practitioners, handling a variety of dental needs. Other dentists practice in any of nine specialty areas. Orthodontists, the largest group of specialists, straighten teeth by applying pressure to the teeth with braces or retainers. The next largest group, oral and maxillofacial surgeons , operates on the mouth and jaws. The remainder may specialize as pediatric dentists (focusing on dentistry for children); periodontists (treating gums and bone supporting the teeth); prosthodontists (replacing missing teeth with permanent fixtures, such as crowns and bridges, or with removable fixtures such as dentures); endodontists (performing root canal therapy); public health dentists (promoting good dental health and preventing dental diseases within the community); oral pathologists (studying oral diseases); or oral and maxillofacial radiologists (diagnosing diseases in the head and neck through the use of imaging technologies).. Work environment. Most dentists are solo practitioners, meaning that they own their own businesses and work alone or with a small staff. Some dentists have partners, and a few work for other dentists as associate dentists.. Most dentists work 4 or 5 days a week. Some work evenings and weekends to meet their patients' needs. The number of hours worked varies greatly among dentists. Most full-time dentists work between 35 and 40 hours a week. However, others, especially those who are trying to establish a new practice, work more. Also, experienced dentists often work fewer hours. It is common for dentists to continue in part-time practice well beyond the usual retirement age.. Dental Hygienists . Dental hygienists remove soft and hard deposits from teeth, teach patients how to practice good oral hygiene, and provide other preventive dental care. They examine patients' teeth and gums, recording the presence of diseases or abnormalities.. Dental hygienists use an assortment of different tools to complete their tasks. Hand and rotary instruments and ultrasonic devices are used to clean and polish teeth, including removing calculus, stains, and plaque. Hygienists use x-ray machines to take dental pictures, and sometimes develop the film. They may use models of teeth to explain oral hygiene, perform root planning as a periodontal therapy, or apply cavity-preventative agents such as fluorides and pit and fissure sealants. In some States, hygienists are allowed to administer anesthetics, while in others they administer local anesthetics using syringes. Some States also allow hygienists to place and carve filling materials, temporary fillings, and periodontal dressings; remove sutures; and smooth and polish metal restorations.. Dental hygienists also help patients develop and maintain good oral health. For example, they may explain the relationship between diet and oral health or inform patients how to select toothbrushes and show them how to brush and floss their teeth.. Hygienists sometimes make a diagnosis and other times may prepare clinical and laboratory diagnostic tests for the dentist to interpret. Hygienists sometimes work chair side with the dentist during treatment.. Work environment. Dental hygienists work in clean, well-lighted offices. Important health safeguards include strict adherence to proper radiological procedures and the use of appropriate protective devices when administering anesthetic gas. Dental hygienists also wear safety glasses, surgical masks, and gloves to protect themselves and patients from infectious diseases.. Flexible scheduling is a distinctive feature of this job. Full-time, part-time, evening, and weekend schedules are widely available. Dentists frequently hire hygienists to work only 2 or 3 days a week, so hygienists may hold jobs in more than one dental office. More than half of all dental hygienists worked part time-less than 35 hours a week.. Source: U.S. Department of Labor ( Full Answer )

Ask Questions, ask many questions. Some good ones are. . Experience counts obviously, other factors are also very relevant.. Does the dentist surgically place the implants and restore the final restoration? This situation indicates the doctor has a intimate understanding of BOTH areas of denta…l implant placement and restoration. This separation of procedures between multiple doctors is traditionally the conservative approach to how implants are still done. An understanding of both areas benefits the patient by allowing the entire procedure to be done by one individual doctor in one location. Also, the dentist placing and restoring the implants results in one individual placing the implants in positions of the mouth that will achieve the desired angulation and size that that individual needs for final restorations. Also, any problems that occur are the sole responsibility of one doctor. The patient will not get into a situation where the implant or the final restoration may have complications and the resulting determination of who is responsible for the complication and which doctor is responsible for the management of that situation sometimes puts the patient and in a confusing and undesirable position.

If you sign up for a discount dental plan do you have to find a dentist that accepts both your primary insurance and the discount plan?
Yes, if you want to get the value of both products, i.e. the payment from your primary insurance and the discounts on procedures that are not covered by primary insurance, you need to find a dentist that is covered by both products.. If you are only using the discount product for just cosmetic proc…edures that are not covered by your insurance, you could go to a separate dentist, but depending on the procedures it could have an impact on other treatment planning. So it is best to discuss with your regular dentist.. Also, you should also disclose that you have the discount coverage when filing a claim with the insurer. ( Full Answer )
