Working in the dental field, there were so many people that told us they did not take care of their teeth and their dental needs because they did not have dental insurance. We understand that cost is a big factor, but we believe that your dental health is a huge part of overall health. We needed to find a way to help the patients get to the dentist. This is the reason Healthwize was born. We wanted to find a SIMPLE and cost-effective way to get patients to handle their dental needs before their costs become out of control!
As a dentist, my other observation is that when patients did finally make it to my office, the dental insurance companies made it difficult to handle all their problems because of smoke and mirrors and games they played. Many times it was pre-existing conditions, waiting periods, yearly maximums and other items that frustrated and limited patients. Healthwize has NONE of these.
I have started this plan in my office and patients love it and come back to it every year!
