Dentist Sandy Springs: Skipping Your Cleanings Costs Money and Health

Dentist near meSince the early 2000’s, adults have been visiting the dentist less.[1]  And the Great Recession and now Covid-19 have only aggravated the trend.  We see it in our practice and know it is happening in our competitors’ practices as well.  The assumption is that the patient is saving money by extending the time between regular visits or by not going at all.  Not only is this assumption is wrong, but it costs patients their health as well as more money.

Patients who see their dentist on a regular basis save money in adjunctive health treatment.  New research by United Concordia shows that patients who visit their dentist on a regular basis not only improve their overall global health but by extension save in reduced medical costs as well.[2]

Dentists not only improve your smile and maintain your oral health, they improve your overall lives.  So if you’re thinking about putting off that dental appointment because it can wait, think again.
