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 Smile-ist, 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. Kulkarni 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 $29.99 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 Phoenix 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. Kulkarni 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 Patients of all Ages in Phoenix, AZ
General dentistry is as important to your smile as taking care of your teeth at home. For example, checkups and cleanings are necessary to avoid dental issues like tooth cavities and gingivitis. At our Phoenix, AZ dental office, Dr. Kulkarni and our team offer a wide range of family dental services to help you enjoy a lifetime of beautiful, healthy smiles.
The Importance of General and Preventative Dentistry
In all aspects of your health, prevention is vital. Therefore, the primary focus of family dental care is preventing issues from developing in the first place. Besides practicing good hygiene, professional dental cleanings and exams help stop the accumulation of oral bacteria into plaque and tartar. Other treatments, such as teeth-whitening, clear braces, and treatment for teeth-grinding, can also help you manage existing issues before they worsen.
Excellent Dental 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 consult with you about appropriate treatment options to stop the problem from growing worse. However, caring for your smile will still rely on ongoing general dental care.
