In-Office Discount Plan

No Insurance? No Problem. We've Got You Covered with Our In-House Dental Membership Plan.

What is Shao Advantage Plan

Shao Advantage Plan is our in-office savings plan that aims to bring affordability and simplicity to dental care to combat the complexity and frustration of dealing with dental insurance companies.  Our plans cover routine preventative visits at our offices at 100% and offers a flat discount on other services with no exceptions and no maximums.

How is this plan different than Dental Insurance?

Dental insurance premiums have increased year over year without any increase in benefits and also include limitations that make your plans difficult to use.  Most insurances also prohibit many procedures that patients may need such as braces or cosmetic dentistry.

Our plan eliminates all the complexity and frustration of dealing with dental insurance.  Unlike dental insurance, there are no confusing terms, limitations on procedures, annual maximums, deductibles, copays, non-coverage for pre-existing conditions.  No more waiting for pre-authorizations or wondering if your insurance plan will cover a procedures.

Which x-rays are covered and which ones are not?

Our plans cover x-rays that are done on a routine bases during your visit to check for decay and bone health.  Annually we will take x-rays called bitewings to check for decay and every 3-5 years we will take x-rays called a full-mouth series.  These x-rays are covered free of charge on your plan. 

X-rays that are taken to further evaluate problems that the routine x-rays do not show (periapicals) or x-rays that are taken to evaluate the jaw, wisdom teeth, to prepare for orthodontic care or implants  (panoramic, lateral cephalometric or cone-beam CT) are not routine x-rays and therefore are not fully covered.  The 15% discount will apply to these special x—rays.

How do I know if I need the Periodontal Maintenance Plan?

Periodontitis is a serious disease that leads to loss of jaw-bone.  We perform measurements as a part of your routine exam to evaluate for the presence of this disease.  If you are suffering from this disease and require more advanced treatment, we will have a discussion with you regarding the need for periodontal cleanings.
