$1 / Day Dentiq Smile Club
Dentiq’s unique Dental Smile Club Savings Plan will make dental care more affordable and provide access to high-quality dental care.
Let’s face it, cost is the major barrier to dental care in New Zealand. Because we are trying to expand our practice in a competitive environment, an in-house Dental Savings Plan (DSP) can help to attract new patients. In a DSP, members pay a set annual fee. They basically become “members” of our practice. In return for the fee, they receive a specified number of cleanings, examinations, and x-rays, as well as discounts on expensive procedures.
The benefit for patients is that in-house DSPs are often less expensive than traditional dental insurance. Meanwhile, our practice attracts patients who otherwise might not receive treatment – retirees, self-employed, and uninsured people. Your earnings under a DSP are the same, or maybe even higher, than they are for procedures on in-network insured patients. Everyone comes out ahead because we’ve cut out the middleman.
