If the Vegas entertainment scene is a sauce, Giada Valenti is the seasoning.
Avenue Dental Plan in Las Vegas is bypassing the conventional dental-insurance industry and returning key dental decisions to patients and their dentists.
It’s a concept whose time is long overdue, and Avenue Dental Plan brings a real sense of urgency to the dental plan industry. Founded by a couple of dentists who were frustrated watching patients in pain decline treatment because it was not covered, or was only partially covered, by their dental insurance or discount plan, the pair decided to offer treatment that did not have an infinite fine-print list of exclusions. Avenue Dental Plan offers immediate benefits to anyone who signs up for membership.
Yes, this does mean on the very same day they sign-up.
Avenue Dental Plan puts health-care choices back in the hands of patients. Example: if a prospective patient wakes up in the morning with a throbbing tooth ache and pays a membership, that same patient will get an identification number the very same day by email, and they can then choose from among more than 20 participating dentists. All transactions are digital and immediate. There is no waiting period to satisfy. This means the patient doesn’t have to endure a toothache for six months waiting to satisfy some long established, but absurdly random policy. Even better, the private dentists who have signed onto Avenue Dental Plan's network have been thoroughly vetted by the plan’s staff. Each office is privately owned (eliminating the corporate hassle) and operated and are staffed by these same dentists, who offer affordable, high-quality dental care.
Avenue Dental Plan selects only the cleanest and most efficient offices in the Las Vegas Valley, and only top-notch private dentists are included on the list, the founders say.
The battles for decent dental care are never-ending for patients, and these people could easily spend the equivalent of a full-time job arguing on the phone with “patient advocates” just to get a crown covered at an exorbitant rate.
But with Avenue Dental Plan, the focus is purely on patients. They are covered immediately, and the decisions are put back in their hands. It’s flexible and easy. Equipped with a digital membership number, dental patients identify themselves as Avenue Dental Plan members when they reach out to a listed dentist, make an appointment, see a dentist and get an individualized treatment plan. If it is still out-of-reach financially, the participating providers also offer their own payment plans.
Avenue Dental Plans start at just $15 per month for an individual or $149 for the year (which works out to about $12 per month) and includes savings on dental care like emergencies, extractions, exams, and much more. Conventional X-rays are free for all Avenue Dental Plan members.
Two members pay $19 per month or $189 per year. The plan also welcomes small businesses and has group rates that it will customize to include family members of covered employees at no charge. Pricing information for businesses or groups is available directly by calling 888-764-5304.
Avenue Dental Plan also offers discounts on cosmetic dentistry and applies to services such as porcelain (white) crowns and fillings, teeth whitening, veneers, and implants.
It’s time to take back control of dental decisions.
