REDONDO BEACH, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/03/14 -- According to the California Healthcare Foundation, almost 40 percent of Californians do not have dental insurance, often making a visit to the dentist and access to necessary oral health care services an extreme financial burden. In many instances, patients without insurance forgo dental care for long periods of time -- years, in some cases. Dr. Michael Fulbright, a cosmetic dentist in Redondo Beach, says that providing affordable access to dental care for all patients is something that his practice places high importance on.
At Fulbright Cosmetic & Reconstructive Dentistry, Dr. Fulbright offers patients (both those with dental insurance and those without) the option of the FulCare Dental Membership Plan. Options include the Healthy Children Plan for children ages 12 and younger at $29.00 per month, and the Healthy Adult Plan for patients aged 13 and older at $39.00 per month. As February recently marked National Children's Dental Health month, Dr. Fulbright says he hopes the affordability of programs like Fulcare Dental Membership Plan will help demonstrate that obtaining oral health care for a child can be achieved in spite of the financial concerns a parent might face.
Both the Healthy Child Plan and the Healthy Adult Plan offer a comprehensive list of preventive dental care services, including:
- Teeth cleanings
- Doctor examinations
- CariFree screening (cavity prevention)
- Laser cavity detection
- X-rays (if necessary)
Adult patients are also offered a second option, the Adult Perio Gum Care Plan, which emphasizes gum disease care in addition to the preventive care services. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, almost half of the U.S. adult population over age 30 suffer from some form of gum disease. However, if caught in time, gingivitis (the early stage of gum disease) can be improved and treated with good oral hygiene and regular professional cleanings, explains Dr. Fulbright. When a patient chooses the Adult Perio Gum Care Plan, they will have three to four periodontal maintenance cleanings, as well as subgingival irrigation treatment.
Another benefit of the program is that patients receive a 15 percent discount on the practice's cosmetic dentistry and elective dental services. This can include procedures such as teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, dental implants, and tooth-colored fillings. The discount can also cover some of the orthodontic treatment options at the practice, including teeth-straightening systems like Invisalign® and Six Month Smiles®.
For patients seeking an alternative to their current insurance plans, Dr. Fulbright says selecting the Fulcare Dental Membership Plan allows them the option of dental services without deductible fees, yearly maximums, or insurance company limitations. And for patients without dental insurance and those who are concerned about cost, Dr. Fulbright notes that many dentists offer payment plans and/or financing options, and he encourages patients to ask their dentist about more affordable alternatives. He says that good preventive care is essential to healthy teeth and gums, and at a minimum, patients should try and see a dentist at least twice a year for a cleaning and exam.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm. In his Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore t...

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

HyperConvergence came to market with the objective of being simple, flexible and to help drive down operating expenses. It reduced the footprint by bundling the compute/storage/network into one box. This brought a new set of challenges as the HyperConverged vendors are very focused on their own proprietary building blocks. If you want to scale in a certain way, let’s say you identified a need for more storage and want to add a device that is not sold by the HyperConverged vendor, forget about it...
