At Chittenden Dental, we provide a health based model of care. Our practice’s speciality is to address the underlying reasons for disease and to help promote optimal wellness and to improve your overall health.
There are a variety of reasons why we don’t subscribe to dental insurance. Primarily it’s because our practice is focused on helping our patients attain optimal wellness. With that focus, our practice looks at the, “Big Picture.” This includes proactive, health based dentistry, with special emphasis on airway, TMJ and biological based care.
Sadly, insurance companies aren’t willing to pay for this customized type of dentistry. Insurance companies only allow patients to fix a few teeth every twelve months. This is certainly a recipe for disaster. When people only treat what insurance allows they will find themselves with a host of problems as the years go by.
Those problems will end up costing more than you had bargained for in the long run because insurance won’t cover it. In addition, you won’t be able to afford the emergency treatments because of your insurance premiums.
Since we care about overall health and wellbeing we provide our patients with optimal, long term treatment plans that are over and above what the insurance companies are willing to support.
Sadly, the reality is that insurance companies only care about their own financial needs and not the wellbeing of dental patients. At Chittenden Dental, we care about you, and so we prefer to work directly with you and not be limited by your dental benefit company.
