Help Finding an Emergency Dentist in LouisianaCall us to get help with locating an emergency dentist near you.
Preventive care is of the utmost importance if you want to save your teeth and keep them in good condition. Too many people in Louisiana don’t go to the dentist often for regular checkups and cleanings. That’s why three in ten people avoid smiling and feel embarrassment due to the condition of their mouth and teeth, according to the American Dental Association4. It is cheaper and healthier if you go to the dentist every six months for a checkup than to wait until you need to get a costly procedure done. Residents in Louisiana will pay $290 on average each time they go to the dentist, according to KFF5. In case of a dental emergency, call us to immediately schedule an appointment with an emergency dentist near you.
Tourists Seeking an Emergency Dentist in Louisiana
Tourists visiting Louisiana for Mardi Gras, or visiting sights such as the Old State Capitol or the French Quarter in New Orleans should worry in case of a dental emergency. Our lines are open 24/7, meaning anytime you call, our dental referral specialists will take your call and locate an emergency dentist near you.
As a tourist, your dental options are quite broad if you have a PPO or HMO dental insurance plan. With a PPO plan, you can go to any dentist you like while visiting Louisiana. While any dentist you go to will allow you to get some level of reimbursement from your PPO insurance plan, selecting an in-network dentist will ensure that you pay the least amount of money possible out of your own pocket. Our dental referral specialists can make sure to provide you with the location of a nearby in-network dentist in order to keep costs low while you are traveling. HMO plans allow you to only go to dentists who are a part of the HMO network, and therefore you will not receive any reimbursement from your insurance company if you choose to go to an out of network dentist. Since it is especially important for HMO patients to go to dentists in their network, our dental referral specialists have been trained to find you the closest in-network HMO dentist if you require one. Don't spend the countless hours trying to find an emergency dentist while you are on vacation should the need arise. Call us and we will get you an appointment today in under 3 minutes for FREE!
