Popular Dental Trends

In this article, The Vartanian Dental Group in Mission Viejo will take a look at the most popular dental trends in the industry. We will also take a look at what is to come for dentists in the future. James Vartanian is a local family dentist in Mission Viejo who has a team of experts all under one roof. We will evaluate some of the benefits of having all the experts in one amazing dental group right here in Mission Viejo and how that can benefit you by saving you money.

The first and most import dental trend for 2015 was the increase of research from patients about how much money does a dental procedures cost, rather than researching the procedure itself. This could be for several reasons: more consumers do not have dental insurance, more consumers have less dental insurance coverage, therefore would have to pay out of pocket or they have a cap on how much dental work can be done each year. If you, a family member or co-worker fall into this category, then one of the main advantages of coming to the Vartanian Dental Group is that they carry most insurance plans. I’m sure you have heard that a lot out there, but there is a difference and that difference can either cost you more money or save you money. Let me explain, if you have an appointment with a dentist who accepts your insurance plan, but is “Out of Network,” then that dentist will cost you more money out of pocket than The Vartanian Dental Group who probably is “In-Network” with your insurance provider.  Be sure to ask when calling The Vartanian Dental Group at 760-586-5669.

Secondly, we found that many people were unaware that there are several financing options available. If for some reason, you don’t fall into a particular insurance category or is something isn’t covered or you’ve gone over your allotted insurance spending, but something happens in an emergency type of situation where you must get a procedure done, then there are several financing options available for you through The Vartanian Dental Group in Mission Viejo. Please don’t hesitate to call and ask for a free consultation and explain your situation to us and we should be able to come up with a game plan that works out for everyone. At The Vartanian Dental Group, we want to work together with you to provide the best possible care at affordable rates and that includes a payment plan option for you.

Thirdly, the patient experience is more important than ever. Consumers are more educated than ever before and the overall consumer experience is very important. The consumer is more savvy than ever and they are aware of what other dentists charge, they are aware of what new technology looks like and they want a seamless and pain free way to have their dental work taken care of. People do not want to have to go see one dentist for this and another dentist that, which is why having The Vartanian Dental Group with all the services in-house, helps make the guest experience a pleasurable one.

Lastly, Technology played a huge role in improving dental implants over the past several years. The new 3-D imaging has allowed the dentist to feel more comfortable in recommending implants. Implants were used sparingly in past years, but now are becoming the standard of care.

Did you notice how the top three items in this article was all about the consumer, rather than the latest x-ray machine, crown or implant. This takes me to the next section of this article, what will we see in the future of dentistry. All the experts believe that the evolution of technology will continue to improve dentistry as a whole and improving the consumer experience is a rising trend that all dentists should consider!
