Top 10 Things about Dentistry Pricing

Tips for Affordable Dental Care in Madison

The dentists of Total Care Dental are determined to make our services affordable for families throughout the Madison area. Here are the top 10 things you need to know about getting quality dental care at low costs at our clinic:

1. Honest and Upfront Pricing

Dental procedures can be expensive, especially if you require a lot of restorative care or have not been to the dentist in a long time. Fortunately, Total Care Dental works closely with our patients to provide early and accurate pricing whenever possible.

The average cost of dental procedures will vary from person to person, as no two mouths are exactly the same. A single filling will be considerably cheaper than a series of root canals. Our staff will go over pricing and payment options to give you the treatment you need at a price you can afford.

If you’re ready to improve your smile through cosmetic dentistry, a free cosmetic consultation will give you an idea of final costs and procedures. During a meeting with our dentists, we will go over various treatment options to improve your smile. This can include our in-office whitening or Invisalign clear braces. There are many cosmetic services available to meet your budget.

3. Dental Insurance Options for Madison Patients

At Total Care Dental, we accept most dental insurance providers. Before you arrive for your appointment, we will gladly check your benefits to maximize your coverage options. We even submit the claims to your insurance provider. All you have to pay are your co-insurance and deductible!

Major insurance we accept:

American Dental Plan of Wisconsin Logo Ameritas Dental Insurance Logo Cigna Dental Insurance Logo Delta Dental Insurance Logo
Guardian Dental Insurance Logo Humana Dental Insurance Logo Principal Dental Insurance Logo  More Dental Insurance Plans

4. Cash, Personal Check, and Credit Cards All Accepted Here

Not everyone has dental insurance. To make payment as easy as possible for patients without dental insurance, we accept cash, personal checks, and most credit cards as payment. You may pay in whatever way is easiest for you. If you plan to use a credit card, you may use Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover brands.

Along with insurance, we accept CareCredit and Illumisure payment plans. Each of these options gives you long-term repayment options, so you can get the treatment you need now and pay at your own rate. These options can be used with your existing dental insurance to keep your out-of-pocket costs down.

CareCredit has low minimum monthly payment options which can be made between 6 and 60 months, depending on your needs. This makes it easier to afford big procedures by breaking up payment over a reasonable timeframe. There are even interest free options so you don’t pay more than you have to. CareCredit covers traditional preventative and restorative procedures along with cosmetic dentistry.

Illumisure is another non-insurance payment option. There are different membership options provides by Total Care Dental. The different plans cover preventative care, including cleanings and x-rays as needed.

6. Dental Procedure Discounts

Only at our Madison dentist office do uninsured patients get a pre-payment discount. There is a 5% discount for patients without insurance if their services are over $300 and they pay in full before receiving treatment. 5% savings can quickly add up if you have a lot of restorative or cosmetic work.

Cosmetic dental procedures are often not covered by insurance. Rather than drive across the state searching for a dentist who will accept your insurance, stop by our offices for a consultation. Our Madison dental clinic is conveniently located so patients can get the cosmetic services they want while staying close to home. You’ll find affordable options for your cosmetic dentistry even without insurance.

8. Referral Rewards for Patients

If you know someone in need of affordable dental care, send them to Total Care Dental. Not only will we provide them with the treatment they need, you will receive a gift card to an area business as a sign of our gratitude. When you make 5 referrals to friends or family in the Madison area, you will receive a $100 Visa gift card! Learn more about our dental referral program here.

9. Get the Procedures You Need without Breaking the Bank

If your dental health is affecting your quality of life, now is the time to make an appointment with Total Care Dental. A missing tooth can make chewing and talking difficult while an impacted molar can cause a lot of daily pain. You can get inexpensive pain relief and dental restoration services here in Madison.

10. Long Term Savings and Benefits

Having your teeth cleaned and examined twice a year may not seem like a lot of work. Yet these biannual dental checkups are often the difference between good oral health and problems later. Regular visits to Total Care Dental gives us a better understanding of your teeth and changes in your mouth. An oral cancer screening once a year can help catch cancer while it is still treatable. Our TMJ therapy, mouth guards, and sleep apnea treatment options are other ways we can handle minor oral health problems before they become a larger (and more expensive) issue.
