Alamo Heights Membership Program

There is any number of reasons that a family might not have dental insurance coverage. For those people who don’t, the cost of dental care can be worrisome. But there’s good news! We believe that comprehensive dental care should be available to all people – and at an affordable price. That’s why we’ve developed our membership program. 

Avoid the Headaches 

Dental insurance is expensive – especially if your employer doesn’t offer coverage options. Plans can be confusing making it difficult to choose which option is best for your family. When you join our membership program, your children have access to the dental care you can trust from Dr. Sage and Dr. Walker. Our entire team is here to make sure that your children receive top-quality care. Our easy-to-understand membership program is an affordable alternative to the high price of insurance premiums.  

Membership Coverage

Our membership plan covers all of your child’s cleanings, exams, and routine x-rays. But what if they need a procedure? We have a list of pricing that lets your know exactly what the cost will be. That means no hidden fees and no surprise costs after the procedures are completed. The price you see is the price you pay. No more wondering if fillings, crowns, or root canals are out of your price range. We have options for every budget. 

Easy to Sign Up

Another big perk of our membership program is how easy it is to sign up. And it’s immediate! You can even sign up at your next office visit. In less than 2 minutes, you and your family can be covered and start receiving treatment immediately. Seriously! It’s that easy.

Why Should My Child See a Pediatric Dentist?

Many parents ask the question, “Why should my child see a pediatric dentist instead of a general dentist?” And it’s a fair question. Teeth are teeth, right? Well… yes, but it’s not that simple. Just like a pediatrician is trained in the specific development and growth of little bodies, pediatric dentists know everything about the teeth and mouth development of your kiddo.

When it comes to kids, we’re experts

Everyone knows that to become a dentist, it takes brains and a lot of schooling. But did you know that pediatric dentists have even more training AFTER their college and dental school are completed? Pediatric dentists are specially trained to work on patients of all ages from infants, children, and teens. 2-3 years of additional training make pediatric dentists experts in the dental development and potential dental problems that children may face. We all want the very best when it comes to our kids. That’s why choosing a pediatric dentist over a general dentist ensures that they will get the very best care.

Fun is always a priority

At Alamo Heights, our staff is compassionate, and our technology is state-of-the-art. The office is specially designed to be fun and engaging for young people. We know that visiting the dentist’s office can be scary or overwhelming for some patients, so we always focus on making the experience as enjoyable as possible. Whether your kiddo likes to chat or is a little bit shy, our staff knows how to talk to kids to make them feel safe and comfortable.  We’re not just experts in tiny teeth, we’re experts in fun!

Training and experience with kids with special needs

Another big plus when it comes to pediatric dentists is our training in working with children who have special needs. We take time to talk to the parents about the specific ways to work with their child. We have years of experience working with kids who may need accommodations to feel more comfortable. Giving each and every child the special care they need to achieve a healthy happy smile is always our priority.

Prepared for specific pediatric dental problems

Additionally, there are some specific issues that general dentists just aren’t trained to address. From thumb sucking to baby teeth, pediatric dentists can help prepare parents for dental problems and milestones that most children face. We know that when we’re treating a child, it’s not just the patient that needs our attention. We do our best to always keep parents up to date with exactly what their child is going through developmentally and what to expect.

Getting Started

As parents, it’s normal to question why things are done a certain way. Hopefully, now you understand the importance of choosing a pediatric dentist for your little ones. When your child is in our dental chair, they’re our number one priority! To make an appointment, or if you have any questions about choosing a pediatric, call us today!
