man admiring teeth - New Patient Info on Dental InsuranceIf you’re putting off a trip to the dentist because you don’t have dental insurance, you are putting yourself at risk for serious conditions such as tooth decay or gum disease.

Regular checkups are a crucial part of prevention, which is why avoiding dental visits can cause a lot of damage to your mouth and end up costing you far more in the long run. Getting your teeth cleaned regularly by a dental professional also ensures that any potential problems are detected early on.

Don’t skip out on visiting your dentist just because you have no insurance. Dentistry at East Piedmont has chosen not to be participating providers on any insurance plans, meaning you do not have to have insurance to get quality dental care.

What is a No Insurance Dentist?

We consider ourselves a no insurance dental provider. When you agree to be a provider, you also agree only to provide ‘covered’ services, not services that are needed.

When it comes to your dental health, you should have the right to choose the type of care you need and desire, not be limited by what your insurance dictates.

Dr. Patel strives to provide every patient with options from the most optimal treatment to more affordable short-term options. Whether you are insured or not, he does everything possible to make sure you receive the highest level of care available.
