Did Your Retirement Leave You Without Dental Insurance? Marietta, GA

Did Your Retirement Leave You Without Dental Insurance?

Dental Insurance Form Marietta GA

Retirement means gaining more time and freedom, but it can also mean losing your dental insurance benefits. Unfortunately, your dental heath still needs professional attention even though you are no longer working. In fact, older adults are likely to face a variety of oral health problems simply due to their age. It becomes a problem when retirees are left without dental insurance and can’t afford a private plan. If this is you, simply neglecting your dental health care plan should not be an option.

It is important to know that avoiding, neglecting or delaying your dental needs can lead to disruptive and serious consequences. Most oral health conditions don’t go away on their own. For example, gum disease and decay (two conditions older adults are susceptible to) can progress enough to cause tooth loss. Replacing a lost tooth requires a notable expense that could have been drastically lessened if dental visits were routinely kept throughout the year. Gum disease can also impact your heart health and contribute to diabetes and stroke if not addressed in a timely manner. There’s a lot at stake when it comes to your dental health, so giving up your dentist just because you don’t have insurance can be a serious mistake!

Choose a Dentist Who Offers a Payment Plan

Today’s dentists realize that many patients are without proper insurance coverage. In response, they may offer a variety of payment options or financing plans to ensure each patient gets the dental treatments he or she needs and deserves.

At Gilreath Family Dentistry, we want to retain and accommodate patients who are retired and left without dental insurance coverage. Therefore, not only do we offer third party financing through Care Credit, but we’ve also launched a special membership club to simplify payments for preventative care. Our loyal members also save money on additional treatments and procedures they may need as an aging adult.

Oral Hygiene and Preventative Care Becomes Imperative

If you don’t have dental insurance, you’ll want to do all you can to avoid the need for restorative dental treatments or tooth damage repair. There are countless ways to protect your teeth at home, including wearing a mouthguard if you grind your teeth or play sports, using your teeth for chewing instead of opening packages, and maintaining a diligent oral hygiene routine.

To avoid additional trips to the dentist, brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes each session. Floss daily – don’t give excuses! Up your hygiene game by investing in an electronic toothbrush and/or water flosser, as these can ensure your mouth is getting as clean as possible, even if you begin to lose dexterity or coordination with age. Lastly, consider adding a fluoride mouthwash to your nightly routine.

It shouldn’t be difficult to get the dental procedure you need done, even without insurance. If you’re in pain or just need a procedure taken care of, you can see a dentist with no insurance.

No insurance? No problem. Call Gilreath Family Dentistry today to learn more about our valued membership plan for patients who aren’t covered under a traditional dental insurance plan.

Dr. Gilreath is incredible with my kids. They love going to the dentist now! And this busy mom loves the warm neck wraps, the soft music and enjoying a latte while I relax!

Kenneth H.

Was lucky enough to find these guys when I got insurance that my old dentist did not take. Very professional and friendly staff! Office has the latest greatest technology as well. If you're looking for a new dentist, search no further!

Susie L.

Very personable and friendly, they took the time to go over my complex dental history and did not pressure me into anything. They gave their recommendations and priced out any options I had. Great group!

Camille Y.

Dr. Gilreath and his staff are top notch. I received the best cleaning I've ever had while watching my favorite show. The Doctor and his staff were all very polite, friendly, and courteous. They explained everything to me clearly and presented me with options in a gentle way that didn't make me feel pressured at all. It's obvious they really care about the wellbeing of their patients. The facility and equipment is really nice as well. I will definitely be back!

Juan R.

Always willing to work around my kids and my schedules. Today I had a long appointment. They started on time and always made sure I was comfortable and that the pain was managed so the procedure could’ve been completed without issues. Very courteous and professional staff.

Lucia B.

Awesome dental practice! The staff is friendly and efficient. Dr. Gilreath is thorough and versed in the latest technology and procedures. I love that he can make crowns in the office while you wait (so no walking around with a temporary crown for days or weeks). I would strongly recommend this dental practice!

Matthew W.

I've been going here for about a little over a year now. I've had a few cleanings, a filling, and started Invisiline so far. Hands down, the best run dental office I've ever been to. In the past at other dental offices I often had to wait 30 or more minutes beyond my appointment time before being seen. At Dr. Gilreath's office I've been seen on time every time. They seem to have systems in place to make every part of your visit run smoothly. From how they took x-rays, to billing and appointments, to the work done by the hygienist/dentist, everything seems to run like a well oiled machine. On top of that all the staff are all friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The office space itself is also quite nice. Very clean, well maintained, and seems very "up to date" with their equipment. If you're looking for a dentist and are anywhere in the northwest metro area I would highly recommend Dr. Gilreath.

Jhion R.

The staff is always so courteous and personable. They make us feel like family every time we have an appointment. Service is excellent, too. My wife recently went for a cleaning and Dr. Gilreath noticed a chip in one of her fillings. He knew we recently had another baby and that her time was very limited so he went ahead and did the filling right then and there, an extra thirty minutes tops. Dr. Gilreath is always looking at the big picture and really knows his stuff. We will never go anywhere else
