The Truth About Dental Insurance

All too often, dental care is based on the treatments that are covered by dental insurance once disease has occurred. There is very little focus on what the underlying causes of disease are and how to prevent them. Patients become a passive partner, fixing only the problems that are recommended by the dentist and covered by insurance. In this way, insurance fosters a disease-driven care cycle, in which the dentist simply treats symptoms rather than looking at underlying causes. We understand that cost is a concern for many people and are happy to help them maximize whatever dental coupon or dental benefits they have as a courtesy.

At Evans Street Dental, we believe in creating a health-centered relationship with our patients. We are committed to building a relationship between the doctor and our patients to determine their values, rather than treating what their insurance pays for. When you visit us, we do much more than treat symptoms. Our visits focus on exploring your oral health, how your oral health is connected to your overall health, and how we can help you improve your oral health and thereby enhance your total wellness. We never rush our patients; we want to ensure that you feel confident and comfortable about the care you receive at our office. We are dedicated to educating our patients so they can make informed decisions about their oral health care, and we work to help them set and achieve their oral health goals.

Dr. Shane Ellsworth also offers a guarantee on his service. We would like to invite you to experience true professionalism in dentistry; however, if you aren’t satisfied with your experience with us, we will not charge you for your examination and records, and you can take them to any dentist of your choosing.

If you would like to learn more about how Evans Street Dental is different, we invite you to contact us today at 503-472-1402 and schedule your visit with our dentist in McMinnville, Oregon. We are eager to care for you!
