About 74 million Americans have no dental insurance according to some estimates, and even those who have it sometimes need to navigate deductibles and limits to coverage. The end result could be that we’re a nation whose dental care needs are falling behind. 

At Volterra Dental in Los Alamitos, we’re promoting affordable, quality dental services with our own Dental Membership plans. For a low annual fee, you receive a range of the most common treatments for hundreds of dollars less than you’d pay for these sessions individually. 

An in-office plan

Our dentist, Dr. Richard Blackburn, noted that many insurance plans can be incompatible with what he views as important to high-quality dental care. Along with inquiries from patients about alternatives, Dr. Blackburn introduced the idea of membership plans within the practice. Our plans exist exclusively for our patients as a way to deliver the best dental care in a trouble-free, affordable way. 

It’s simple, too. Membership services are clearly outlined and inclusive. Compared with a typical dental insurance arrangement, you see benefits such as: 

  • No claims forms or waiting for approval
  • No reimbursement limit on services
  • No out-of-pocket deductibles
  • No exclusions for pre-existing conditions

Our membership plans compare more to a subscription service. You simply choose one of our three plans and you receive the included services within the next 12 months. We also offer rate reductions when you renew your plan. 

Prophylaxis plan

Patients with good oral health who require preventative (prophylaxis, or prophy for short) services pay $386 annually for a treatment list that includes: 

  • Two examinations with dental cleanings
  • X-rays as required
  • Fluoride treatments for cavity prevention when necessary

You save over $280 over the cost of these individual services. A plan for children between the ages of 3 and 14 is $340, close to 50% off the individual treatment rates. 

Periodontal plan

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, over 47% of Americans have some level of gum disease. Correcting these issues requires more frequent treatment, so we offer a plan for patients who need this service. You can purchase an annual perio plan membership for $450, representing a savings of $330 over the price for individual treatments. 

Included in the plan are: 

  • 2 exams 
  • 3 perio maintenance treatments
  • X-rays as required

In addition, you can purchase most of our other services at discounts up to 20%. 

It’s never been easier to get the dental care you need at reasonable prices and without the complexity and red tape of insurance claims.
