Tired of Playing the Insurance Game?

Here at Austin Bluffs Dental we are tired of all the games the insurance companies are playing these days!  Between rising costs for our patients, reduced coverage, forcing patients to see “in network” doctors or else risk paying more out of pocket, waiting periods, blah, blah, blah….we are getting fed up!  So what are we going to do about it you ask…introducing Dr. Kearney’s In-House Dental Plan!  We want our patients to receive the best care, and we are tired of insurance companies telling our patient’s they don’t deserve the best.  By forcing their insured’s to  go to “corporate dental offices”; insurance companies are essentially saying “ok dental care is all your worth”.  Does that sound like they way you wanted to be treated?  I wonder if the CEO’s of the insurance companies go to the corporate dental offices.  I bet they don’t, yet they tell you that is where you have to go…well we are here to tell you that you that, “No, you don’t!”  Dr. Kearney’s In house Dental Plan is not insurance, however, it is an affordable way to make sure your family gets the dental care you deserve!  Call our office today to ask about the family plan, and for those over 65, the senior plan!  We have great affordable monthly payments that cover all your preventative care and then as an added bonus we give you a discount on any restorative work that you need!  Don’t be told by another insurance company that you don’t matter, come to Austin Bluffs Dental where each patient matters to us!

Holiday Traditions; Fun or Waste of Time?

easter_eggs_kool_aid_dyeWith Easter right around the corner, I was wondering what our patients thought about holiday traditions.  I have a milk delivery service and when placing my order this week I added 2 dozen white eggs with the anticipation of the yearly Easter egg dying.  It seems a little silly to order 2 dozen eggs that we will boil, color, and then try to figure out how to consume so that we don’t “waste” them; but hey, a tradition is a tradition and I am not going to skip out on it!  Does your family have a favorite tradition for the holidays or does your family skip out of it all?  Just wondering?

Let’s Refresh

It is now officially Spring, and what does that mean?  Well, for most people, it means a time of renewal, a time to get out of the house and meet with old/new friends to rejuvenate our lives.  This time of year can be really great for most people; but if you are a person suffering with bad breath, it can also be an embarrassing time for you.  It is hard to want to get out and meet up with friends for lunch if you are worried you might knock them out with your breath.  Worry no more; chronic bad breath (aka halitosis) is a treatable condition and not one you have to hide from!  Check out this article on the causes of bad breath and once you determine the cause, we can help you treat it!

This Spring, get out there and enjoy! Let Austin Bluffs Dental refresh you breath and your life!

How Much is that Going to Cost?

Money has to be the number one concern for people when they are considering their treatment solutions.  I hear it almost everyday…”what am I going to have to pay to have that done?”  It is a valid concern for most people.  Many families live on strict budgets.  Living paycheck to paycheck seems to be more of a rule than an exception anymore; here at Austin Bluffs Dental, we understand, but we still want you to give yourself the best.  It is because of our goal, which is to get every patient into optimum oral health, that we proudly offer in house, no credit check financing.  If you have been putting off treatment because you thought you could not afford it, let us show you how you can.  Let’s take the worry of the cost out of the equation and let’s just focus on what is really going to improve both the quality and quantity of your life!

Spring Baby, Yes!

SpringCould it be true?  Spring is really almost here!  Setting the clocks forward this weekend really makes it seem so close, and I can’t hardly contain my excitement!  I love spring because of the longer days, the green grass, the pretty tulips and other flowers that begin to bloom, the rain (and sometimes the snow), and most of all because it means I can send my kids out to play more often!  Why do you love Spring?

Don’t forget to “Spring forward” this weekend and enjoy whatever it is that you love about this time of year!

Let’s hear it for the Underdogs!

winnerToday I am feeling proactive, not reactive as “they” say, and I felt today was the day for inspiring! So here is a quote I found to hopefully lift you up and spark!  Happy Friday!

“We can either watch life from the sidelines, or actively participate…..Either we let self-doubt and feelings of inadequacy prevent us from realizing our potential, or embrace the fact that when we turn our attention away from ourselves, our potential is limitless.”

-Christopher Reeve

Have you Flossed Today?

We have all heard it….you need to floss more!  Those dreaded words at our dental checkups, even those of us in the profession are not immune!  I don’t know why it is so hard to make time for a small piece of string for the benefit of our health, but it really seems to be just too much to ask!  I am guilty of it myself.  I floss, but not like I should.  I thought for today I would try to post some tips about flossing with the hopes that it might motivate us all!

Follow the link to an article about how to floss, and maybe, just maybe it might inspire greatness!
