“Dental Care is TOO Expensive”; “I can’t afford to go to the dentist”, “I don’t have Dental Insurance”

For many people and maybe YOU, the person reading this blog, these quotes may hit home!

15. dental care is too expensiveThe unfortunate fact is that with what is considered standard, traditional, or normal dental care these quotes are true. Because:

1. Almost no dentists treat the Cause of Dental Disease nor teach you how to eliminate the cause.

2. Almost no dentists Guarantee their work indefinitely which means it is NOT designed to last This makes dental care very expensive in the long run.

3. You are considered “normal” if you keep on having new dental problems or require reparative, emergency, corrective or other dental treatment periodically.

If you let us help you with our system of Dental care and Prevention you will find that in the future:

a. Regular Dental Care will NOT be expensive.

b. Not having Dental Insurance will NOT be a concern or an issue.

c. You will save Thousands of dollars in the future.

We at Wilton Dental Associates can help you to achieve this by:

A. Teaching you how you can eliminate the cause of dental disease.

B. By guaranteeing indefinitely any dental work we do for you that you might need to correct old or pre-existing dental problems.

We will design a long term preventive program for you so that keeping your teeth healthy is NOT expensive. At Wilton Dental Associates the total cost of your regular dental care in the future even without insurance should be hundreds of dollars per year not thousands.

You will save not only money, but time and aggravation while enjoying good dental health for life. This is true for more than 95% of the thousands of our patients who have followed our regular dental care program, many for 30 years or more!

We at Wilton Dental Associates feel it is very sad that people stay away from the dentist, fear going to the dentist, or think that without dental insurance they cannot afford dentistry. We are aware that for many people even with “Dental Insurance”, dental care can become too expensive to afford because the profession traditionally only treats the symptoms. The really terrible thing is that without eliminating the cause of dental disease and without regular reparative care you may not only lose your dental health and/or your teeth but having an unhealthy dentition will also significantly affect your general health.

We have had the privilege of helping students and people with very limited finances get their teeth healthy and keep them that way and we know that we can help anyone do this who really wants to.
