Dental Membership Program
At Families First Pediatric Dentistry we care about your family. We know that insurance premiums are rising, if your yearly premiums are higher than $450 for dental coverage, you are likely paying more than you need to. We also know that life happens and insurance providers change and that may affect who you are able to see for dental care. We think decisions about your family’s health care providers shouldn’t be determined by anyone other than you.
For that reason, we have created an annual office membership plan that creates stability for your family. So if you would like to save on healthcare costs or you are in the middle of a life transition and your family is not currently covered, give us a call to sign up today!Learn More
