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 Concetta Mangiaracina DDS Pllc, 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. Mangiaracina 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 $44.99 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 Merrick 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. Mangiaracina 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 Dental Care for the Whole Family in Merrick, NY
Routine family dentistry is as essential to your smile as brushing and flossing your teeth. For instance, checkups and cleanings are necessary to evade oral health issues like tooth decay and periodontitis. At our Merrick, NY dental office, Dr. Mangiaracina and our team offer a variety of general dentistry treatments to help your family enjoy a lifetime of beautiful, healthy smiles.
The Necessity for General and Preventative Dentistry
In all aspects of your health, prevention is the best medicine. Therefore, the main focus of exceptional dental care is preventing dental diseases from developing. Besides brushing and flossing your teeth every day, professional dental cleanings and check-ups help stop the accumulation of oral bacteria into plaque and tartar. Other treatments, such as teeth-whitening, fillings, crowns, and more, can also help you address existing issues before they worsen.
Maintaining Good Oral Health in the Long Run
During your dental appointment, your dentist will carefully examine your teeth and gums for signs of trouble. If any are present, then he or she will discuss your options for treatment to stop the problem from growing worse. However, successfully protecting your smile from further trouble will still rely on maintaining good hygiene and regular general visits to your dentist’s office.
