Millennials are Skipping the Dentist

Only 30% of millennials visit the dentist each year.*

Now more than ever, quality dental care is available and affordable to everyone. So what is keeping millennials from the dentist?

The largest factor? Cost. According to Forbes* over 69% of health care plans do NOT include dental insurance, meaning each dental visit is out of pocket. In addition, with a common lack of transparency, most patients do not know what to expect when visiting the dentist. 

The second largest reason millennials are not visiting the dentist each year is convenience. Millennials are a new type of patient. They are comparing the cost and benefit of the dentist, including the convenience of appointments. If the next available appointment is months away or during work hours that are difficult to get away for, they’ll find another place to go or simply won’t go at all. 

At Ideal Image Dentistry & Spa, we understand our patients and their needs. We are transparent about all costs so our patients know exactly what to expect upfront. We’re also proud to offer affordable care plans and a variety of payment options. Additionally, we accept most dental insurance programs including non-managed care, indemnity (traditional) and PPO out-of-network. We also understand how valuable your time is, and we’ve adjusted our hours to reflect that. With same-day appointments and open hours until 7 PM on Mondays, we work with your schedule to make quality dental care attainable with your busy schedule. 

Ideal Image Dentistry & Spa is more than a dentist. We’re a team of experienced dental care professionals that have come together to make quality dental care affordable, efficient and beneficial for the people of the Bismarck-Mandan area. How can we fulfill your dental needs?
