Are you avoiding the dentist? You’re not alone. Many Hendricks County residents – like you – put off going to dentist. For some people, the thought of having someone poke, prod, scratch, fill or pull their teeth makes them too anxious, so they skip going to dental appointments.
For others, avoiding the dentist comes down to expense and lack of dental insurance. In fact, one study found the 1 in 3 Americans put off getting dental care because of their financial situation and lack of dental insurance. But avoiding the dentist is not the answer since it can cost you more in the long run to fix problems caused by tooth decay, gum disease or broken teeth.
The American Dental Association recommends that you see a dentist, like Dr. Jon Erickson at Danville Family Dentistry in Hendricks County, at least twice a year to check for any developing dental conditions and have your teeth professionally cleaned. By visiting Dr. Erickson, you can stop the progression of any dental problems from their earliest stages – protecting your smile while limiting your costs.
If you’ve been avoiding the dentist because you don’t have dental insurance, Danville Family Dentistry has a solution – our Smile Savings Plan. While this plan is not an insurance program, it is a patient-courtesy program for patients without dental insurance.
