Prairie Village Dentist Launches Preferred Patient Plan

PRAIRIE VILLAGE, KS--(Marketwired - April 21, 2015) - Dr. Grant Smith, a premier Prairie Village dentist, launched a new Preferred Patient Plan in March.

The new Preferred Patient Plan is an alternative to dental insurance. For a small monthly fee, patients who choose to participate will have all of their preventive dental care covered by Dr. Smith's office. Preferred Patients will also receive additional services at a discount, or have the option of enrolling in interest-free financing. These additional services include teeth whitening and other cosmetic procedures.

The plan provides fixed costs and affordable dentistry to patients who have either lost their dental coverage or do not purchase coverage through a third party. Dr. Smith offers the Preferred Patient Plan to individuals as well as to families.

"Many of my patients were under the impression that they couldn't get dental care without some sort of insurance. Now my patients are very happy to be able to control their expenses and know that they are getting great dental care," Dr. Smith said. "I wish I would have come up with a plan like this a long time ago." Dr. Smith was introduced to dentistry by his father, who is the former owner of the practice. He graduated from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Dentistry. Following his graduation, Dr. Smith completed his residency at the school's special patient care clinic. The Prairie Village dentist purchased the practice from his father and built a new location in 2013.

Dr. Smith's practice, 3700 W. 83rd St. Suite 111, has eight dental operatories and an in-office dental laboratory for fabrication of bleach trays, bite guards and partials. He offers cosmetic dentistry, restorative dentistry and preventive care in his state-of-the-art facility. The office uses a huge sterilization area with autoclaves; digital X-rays with a digital pano machine; intraoral cameras; DentalVibe to reduce pain of injections; soft-tissue laser; and Diagnodent. Individual treatments include Snap-On Smile; tray whitening; teeth whitening with Zoom! whitening; crowns; fillings; cavity risk analysis with CariFree program; fluoride varnish; mouthguards for sports; TMJ pain relief; dental implant restorations; partials and denture fabrication; and periodontal treatments.

Dr. Smith uses the revolutionary system CariFree, which allows him to detect why patients are getting cavities. The information is then given to the patients so they can reverse the process before drilling or a filling is needed. Dr. Smith also has the ability to test patient's saliva for pH and bacteria levels.

Another member of the practice, Dr. Tony Hockett, received his dental degree from the University of Iowa. He seeks out continuing education courses to update his skills in technology and dentistry techniques. Dr. Hockett has a passion for treatment and diagnosis.
