Maintaining good dental health is vital not only to your smile, but also to your overall wellbeing. However, without dental insurance or adequate coverage, many patients cannot afford to maintain a regular schedule of preventive care or pay for essential treatment if a dental issue develops. As your dental health worsens, the need for and costs of your treatment skyrocket even further.
At Howard Beach Dental, we know how important it is for families to receive routine dental care, so we’ve joined Doctors Network to help make it affordable for everyone. A direct dental plan with Doctors Network gives patients access to high-quality care at significantly reduced costs, which is especially great news for patients without dental insurance.
A Direct Dental Plan Takes the Guesswork Out of Your Dental Care
Unlike dental insurance, a direct dental plan with Dr. Stern and Doctors Network is a membership that gives you access to significant discounts on almost all of our services. Everyone can join for a low monthly fee of $39.99 and a one-time activation fee of the equal amount. The cost of membership is typically a fraction of most dental insurance premiums.
Patients who sign up for a direct dental plan through our office in Howard Beach can attend routine preventive exams and cleanings for only $25 per visit. This includes X-rays, when necessary, and the cost does not change no matter how many times you visit per year. When cosmetic or restorative treatment is required, the costs of your treatment will be discounted by up to 90%, including fillings, dental crowns, dental implants, Invisalign® and more.
Why Patients Need Doctors Network
The purpose of dental insurance is to help give you peace of mind by helping you keep your dental care costs manageable. Unfortunately, exorbitant fees can make it impossible for many families to secure adequate insurance, and the costs of treatment without it can be too much of a burden to bear. By keeping the costs of dental care manageable, Dr. Stern and Doctors Network can help more patients enjoy excellent dental health, as well as peace of mind knowing that they can afford to take care of their smiles.
The long-term benefit of being able to afford routine dental care is that you are significantly less likely to experience severe dental issues. As a result, you are also less likely to need more extensive treatment later. In addition to the upfront costs of routine care and treatment, a direct dental plan also helps families save money by reducing their need for costly dental restoration.

General Dentistry for the Whole Family in Howard Beach, NY
General dental care is as important to your smile as taking care of your teeth at home. For example, preventive exams and cleanings are necessary to avoid dental issues such as tooth decay and periodontitis. At our Howard Beach, NY dental office, Dr. Stern and our team offer a wide range of family dental services to help you enjoy a lifetime of healthy smiles.
The Value of General Dentistry
In both your oral and overall health, prevention is the best medicine. Therefore, the main focus of family dental care is preventing dental diseases from developing in the first place. Besides brushing and flossing your teeth every day, professional dental cleanings and exams help stop the development of bacteria-rich plaque. Other treatments, such as root canals, fillings, crown and bridges, wisdom teeth extractions, etc., can also help you address existing issues before they grow worse.
Maintaining Good Oral Health in the Long Run
During your visit to your dentist’s office, your dentist will carefully perform a comprehensive dental exam for signs of trouble. Then he or she will recommend an appropriate course of treatment to stop the problem from growing worse. However, ensuring a lifetime of healthy smiles will still rely on routine visits with your general dentist.
