San Antonio Dental Patients Save Big With New In-House Dental Plan

SAN ANTONIO, TX --(Marketwired - February 29, 2016) - Tired of paying high dental insurance premiums? Advanced Dental Associates, a San Antonio dental practice, is in the first year of a new membership plan that has no deductibles, no maximums per year and allows patients to bypass dental insurance companies.

The Advanced Dental Associates In House Membership Plan covers a broad spectrum of services with one flat discount and is available to any patient. The idea of the plan is to give patients without dental insurance access to affordable dental care.

"With the introduction of Advanced Dental Associates In House Membership Plan, we're experiencing that more patients are accepting the dental care they need. And by accepting the dental care they need, we are improving patients overall health," said Dr. Edwards, who operates Advanced Dental Associates. "It's been a great service for patients who would have otherwise neglected dental procedures or had to pay the full price out of pocket."

Patients can sign up for Advanced Dental Associates' new in-house dental plan without delay and need no pre-authorization. There are no limitations for pre-existing conditions, and the staff provides free consultations.

Those involved in Advanced Dental Associates In House Membership Plan receive a 15 percent discount on preventive care, diagnostics, restorative care, oral surgery and periodontal treatment. All-on-4 dental implants and teeth-whitening are not covered in the plan.

Dr. Edwards said the practice's case acceptance has increased since adding the new plan in May 2015.

"Patients appreciate that we have eliminated the hassle of dealing with insurance companies. With our plan, patients know exactly what they need to pay," Dr. Edwards said.

Advanced Dental Associates, 16131 Nacogdoches Rd., has served the San Antonio community for more than 35 years through general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, restorative dentistry, oral and IV sedation, tooth extractions, TMJ treatment, sleep apnea appliances and dental implants. Advanced Dental Associates places dental implants to replace missing teeth or to stabilize dentures. Using the revolutionary All-on-4 dental implant procedure, Advanced Dental Associates can provide quality solutions for patients struggling with uncomfortable removable dentures. Patients with missing teeth often fail to receive proper nutrition because removable dentures do not have the biting force of dental implants or natural teeth. By placing dental implants, Advanced Dental Associates can restore a patient's chewing force and preserve the jawbone.

Dr. Edwards, a San Antonio native, earned his undergraduate degree from Baylor University in 1981 and then his dental degree from the University of Texas School of Dentistry at Houston in 1986. Before purchasing Advanced Dental Associates in 2001, Dr. Edwards owned two other private practices.

Dr. Edwards practices with Dr. Lauren Malitz and Dr. Roberto Villarreal. The practice also added Dr. Craig Long in May 2015.
