Commenting on the recent article, the Los Angeles dental group explains that the time between when care is recommended and when it is received is too long, and dentists should look for ways to encourage more timely care.

As an effort to prevent [lack of care] with their own patients, they work to offer essential and cutting edge dental services, but in a way that minimizes out of pocket costs.

According to an article published October 30th by Dental Economics, patients needing a dental procedure that requires an out-of-pocket expense on average wait 70 days after receiving the recommendation from their dentist to have the procedure done. The article explains that this unexpectedly long delay was due to a combination of “cost, time, insurance benefits, and perceived need.” According to Los Angeles area dental group Medical Center Dental Care, this long waiting period is troubling, especially considering the fact noted by the article that 60 percent of those patients said that they consider dental care to be an “absolute necessity.”

Medical Center Dental Care explains that, as an effort to prevent this with their own patients, they work to offer essential and cutting edge dental services, but in a way that minimizes out of pocket costs. For patients with insurance, they aim to make their standard preventative services free of any significant out-of-pocket costs, so basic dental care does not have to be a difficult decision. They explain that they accept an especially wide range of insurance carriers for both HMO and PPO plans, so those with insurance do not have to call all over town to find a quality clinic that will accept their insurance.

Yet, they explain that because they are a multi-disciplinary, full-service office that offers care pertaining to a variety of dental specialties, there are situations that require out-of-pocket expenses, and they will work with each patient to determine the best way to proceed. Some of these specialties that Medical Center Dental Care is able to offer patients through their team of experts include endodontics, orthodontics, oral surgery, and the very best cosmetic treatments.

Because cosmetic treatments typically fall outside of the blanket of insurance coverage, these are the procedures that are most often paid for out of pocket. Yet, Medical Center Dental Care explains that they are also the procedures where the results are often more dependent on the skill of the dentist rather than the cost of the procedure. Medical Center Dental Care explains that Dr. Christina Dizon, their head cosmetic dentist, has nearly two decades of dental experience, so she knows the ins and outs of every procedure, and can identify if there is ever a more efficient way to achieve superb cosmetic results.
