Making Dental Care Affordable: Alternatives To Dental Insurance

At UNO DENTAL, we recognize that dental care can be costly, making it prohibitive for many families on a tight budget to receive the quality care their teeth deserve. Fortunately, there’s an alternative to having dental insurance through your employer to make procedures like routine cleanings and fillings affordable for anyone, through a dental care-as-a-service provider we’ve chosen to partner with called Kleer.

Importance of Good Dental Care

Paying for dental care, even routine dental care, out of pocket can be costly, with procedures like fillings costing patients in San Francisco upwards of $450 per tooth. Not only are regular exams and cleanings important to attaining a beautiful-looking smile, but also for essential dental hygiene.

Avoiding necessary treatments and preventative care harms a patient’s oral health and allows conditions like gum disease, crooked teeth, and cavities to continue unchecked. Left untreated, these conditions can develop into more serious ones, causing tooth pain, decay, and requiring more serious procedures that are more invasive and expensive.

Benefits of UNO DENTAL’s Membership Plan

UNO DENTAL is happy to offer patients an alternative to confusing, limiting health insurance plans with a simple monthly payment that provides access to the following with no out-of-pocket costs:

  • Periodontal maintenance (4 cleanings per year)
  • Regular dental exams (2 cleanings per year)
  • Regular X-rays (as needed)
  • Emergency exam (1 per year)

These services combined are a $1500 value that you have access to for only $99 per month. Plus, you get discounts on procedures and treatments not covered by Kleer’s membership plan, including diagnostic tests, orthodontic services, and restorative treatments. This combined helps make dental care affordable on any budget.

Details of Kleer Membership Dental Plan

When you sign up for our dental membership, your coverage starts right away – no waiting period required. You can choose between monthly payments (three months’ payment is due up-front) or a yearly subscription. Both plans comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee from the date of purchase as long as you haven’t used the plan for any procedures.

Each membership applies to one family member, however, we offer a 10% discount on additional plans purchased for family members of the original plan. There are no claim forms to submit, yearly maximums, or pre-approvals needed.
