Quality, Affordable Dentistry
No Insurance? No Problem.
Dentistry is not a commodity, it is as much ART as it is SCIENCE.
any people simply choose their dentist off an insurance list. They assume that a dental cleaning or a filing is the same no matter where they go and the cheaper the visit, the better deal they’re getting. This is just not true. Dental care and healthcare in general are not one size fits all, and you could think of choosing your dentist or MD similarly. Quality of work, trust, education and attention to detail are all key factors in deciding who to hand over your most prized possessions to – in our case your teeth. You only get 32. That is it. Having a exceptional partner, like Dr. Glaser in your oral health is critical to keeping your smile for a lifetime.
Dr. Glaser’s fees are based on the skill, time and cost involved in providing his service. The investment in your oral health is not always the same as those reimbursed by your insurance company.
To avoid any misunderstandings, we strongly encourage discussion of services and fees. Two-way communication is critical to the positive relationship Dr. Glaser likes to build with his patients. Our Treatment Plan Coordinator will set up a consultation in regard to your treatment plan and then will help make it work for you and your budget. Sometimes we may need to complete treatment in phases or work with financing options to ensure you get the best possible care.
Is Dr. Glaser conservative or aggressive in recommending treatment?
For many professions from medical doctors to plumbers the provider must decide how conservative or aggressive they are going to be in making recommendations. For instance, if you are getting your car fixed, the auto mechanic may list all those things that are not perfect. He or she may even recommend that all these things be addressed in some way. Another auto mechanic may recommend only fixing those things that may become a major issue or a safety issue within the next few months. And yet another mechanic may only address your main concern.
Although the analogy may seem strange it helps illustrate how Dr. Glaser looks at things.
The answer brings us back to Dr. Glaser’s guiding motto – WIDIOM (Would I Do It On Me). Glaser Dental keeps patient cost down by making sure the treatment is necessary, and in line with the patients goals.
At Glaser Dental we are realistic with our patients. We are honest about what we see as a concern and we are honest about when we believe treatment must be sought. Dr. Glaser will fully inform patients about what he sees. Together with the you, Dr. Glaser will create your plan for treatment based on current dental science, his experience, and based upon your desires.
So to answer the above question, Dr. Glaser is more of the middle of the road. And he always goes back to Would I Do It On Me. This guiding principle allows Dr. Glaser to provide a non-biased treatment plan based on the best possible and realistic outcomes for his patients. By being too conservative, there is a possibility that the potential for future problems is too great. Being too conservative may end up costing more money in the long run because problems like wear, occlusal disease and periodontal disease, all of which we know can lead to BIGGER problems were not addressed. By being too aggressive, the costs for care can become more extensive. In addition being too aggressive may eliminate possible options for care in the future.

3. You Pick Your Way To Pay
Another way that quality dentistry can be made affordable is by providing numerous ways to pay, including multiple payment options. So while we accept payments by cash, check, and by major credit cards, as expected, we also accept forms of payments over time. CareCredit is a credit card particularly used for medical and dental expenses. With CareCredit, patients can have interest-free payment plans for up to 18 months.
Another option is GreenSky Financing Solutions. They will assist our patients with making payment for large complex cases more manageable.
Don’t forget to use your HSA ( Health Savings Account) & FSA (Flexible Spending Account ) accounts here. We will be happy to assist you in using these very helpful tools.
If patients prefer to set aside their personal dental dollars at the start of the year, we will happily apply your investment to your account – easy peasy!
What Is An HSA?
Health savings accounts can be established by an employer or employee, but, only to U.S. taxpayers who are already enrolled in a high-deductible health plan (HDHP). Employers may make contributions to their employees’ HSAs, and when money is drawn from this account for medical expenses, they are not taxed. Also, different from an FSA, funds that aren’t used roll over and accumulate year-to-year.
What Is An FSA?
Flexible spending accounts are established by an employer and is typically funded by pre-tax payroll deduction, but employers can contribute to the account as well. An FSA can be used to cover things such as co-payments, deductibles, and other medical expenses if they are not covered by health insurance. One of the major differences from an FSA vs HSA, is that a flexible spending account implements the “use it or lose it policy”. Any money in this account not used by the end of the year will be forfeited. Another note, funds are deducted from each paycheck and put into this account.
4. Creative Treatment Planning
We can make quality dentistry affordable with creative treatment planning. Many times, care can be sequenced and timed to provide the “biggest bang for the buck.” Over time, many patients can have a very nice healthy dental situation, when affordably planned.
If you value our philosophy on these issues, we invite you to experience our unique brand of quality dentistry which is made affordable, by calling us at 715-359-4344 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
5. The Quality of Our Work
Glaser Dental is known for doing great clinical work and clinically sound work will last longer. We pride ourselves on the time and energy we spend each year growing and learning in the classroom to perfect our skills. It’s the extra traing that makes Dr. Glaser and our hygienists exceptional.
Many people simply choose their dentist off an insurance list. They assume that a dental cleaning is the same no matter where they go and the cheaper the visit, the better deal they’re getting. This is just not true. Again, it goes back to Dr. Glaser’s WIDIOM motto.
