Dear Valued Patient,
We at Dental TLC thank you for being a part of our dental family and want to let you know that we value every minute of the time we get to spend with you!
Our goal at Dental TLC always has been – and always will be! – to provide outstanding dental care to our patients. Our TLC Team consists of only the most compassionate and talented doctors, hygienists, assistants, and office staff to ensure our patients get the very best care. We are also committed to treating our patients in a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere in a state-of-the-art facility with high quality materials. We are Atlanta’s Fun Dental Experience!
The costs of providing the best care (like many other costs) have gone up over time. As a practice we must account for the increased costs in order to continue to deliver the exceptional, fun and comfortable service that you expect from us. We are changing the way people view going to the dentist. We will not compromise our high standards of service that you deserve. Adjusting fees allows us to continue to provide an awesome experience for our patients.
In order to continue to provide the exceptional standard of care that brought you to our office, we will be increasing our fees for most services effective July 15, 2017.
The increase to our office fees will still keep us within industry standards and are in response to rising costs for supplies and great talent. For industry fee examples you can visit https://fairhealthconsumer.org/.
The good news is that for most of our patients who have insurance and are currently NOT paying an out-of-pocket amount for their preventive and diagnostic appointments (your exams, cleanings, x-rays, etc), there will likely be no change for you at all!
For some of our patients whose insurance pays less than 100% for your preventive and diagnostic services, if you are on a fee schedule, or if you are a self-pay patient, there will be a slight increase to your out-of-pocket cost for services completed in our office. If there is a change to your out-of-pocket cost for an upcoming scheduled appointment, we will contact you in advance of your visit to communicate the updated amount that would be due at the time of your appointment.
For our patients without insurance we provide an in-office membership plan – Smile Advantage. The cost of our membership will go up at the same time as our office fees. For more information about our in-office membership go to Dental TLC Membership. Sign up for the current Dental TLC membership plan and get a significant savings on your cleanings!
As always, we appreciate your business and loyalty! You are the reason we come to work every day! We want to continue providing you with Tender Loving Care here for many years to come!
If you would like to come in for your cleaning or treatment prior to the fee increase, please call our office and we will be happy to schedule you to make sure that you can take advantage of our current fees.
