"LIKE US" ON FACEBOOK & INSTAGRAM
Ninety percent of our new patients find our office through the old tried and true method of "word of mouth." However, times are definitely changing. Due to the advancement of social media, newspaper readership is dramatically down and telephone books have been antiquated. More and more patients are finding their needed services through social media. We felt now is the time to jump on that social media train.
Our Facebook page will appear a lot like a Chatter page in this website. However, our communication with you through Facebook will be more weekly than monthly. We hope you truly enjoy it. Provide us a "Like" on your mobile device if you enjoy our weekly updates and we thank you for all your great reviews!
"WHAT IS CARE CREDIT?"
72% of our patients do not or never had dental insurance. For those patients specifically, we provide a 12 month plan through a lending company named Care Credit. We are proud to be a participant in the Care Credit Financing Program; if the patient qualifies they can obtain a 12 month line of credit with 0% interest.
DENTAL INSURANCES + DENTAL FINANCING
Our practice does accept and process dozens of insurance plans. If you should receive a statement from your insurance company stating that we are not a "participating" dentist to your plan, that term is quite misleading. In most cases we will accept and process your insurance for you. However, we've chosen not to be classified as participating as we are very concerned with limiting of services and the increase in bureaucracy a participating dentist must endure.
"END OF THE YEAR" PARTY
We as a staff, yearly have an end of the year celebration. This year's location was at the Conquering Cuisine located on Main Street Doylestown. This celebration was much more unique than any we have held in the past. Our staff sat at a U-shaped counter that surrounded a kitchen that had several overhead monitors. While the owner, Dennis, supplied the libation, we were able to have Chef David prepare our meals and educate us through the process, as we watched him through the overhead monitors. It was a fun and unique experience!
"THE ULTIMATE GIFT OF LIFE"
Long time patient, Barak Z., of Philadelphia will be receiving the ultimate New Year's gift! He will be receiving a life-saving kidney after being on the transplant matching list for almost a year! Our prayers are with you!
"MARTA (DAUGHTER #4) GRADUATES"
On December 15, 2018, Dr. Rakowsky’s youngest daughter, Marta, graduated with a B.A. in Environmental Studies from Naropa University. Congratulations, Marta!!
"IT'S TIME FOR A FACELIFT"
The last time our office was remodeled was in 1990. We feel it's time to remodel again! The anticipated starting date will be in March 2019! Thank you in advance for your patience!
RESOLUTIONS FOR A HEALTHIER SMILE
Making a list of resolutions or goals is a great way to start the New Year. It’s the perfect time to resolve to let go of old, bad habits and take on new, healthier ones. Why not include resolutions for a healthier smile this year to your mouth?
Here are a few tips to help you meet your goal:
1. Improve your oral health habits. Make brushing twice each day and flossing once each day a part of your normal routine.
2. Eat well. A good diet is essential for healthy teeth and gums, and poor nutrition can negatively affect your overall health. The antioxidants found in fruits and vegetables improve the body’s ability to fight bacteria and inflammation. So in the New Year lets make a conscious effort to increase those portions.
3. Don’t Delay on Dental Treatment. A small cavity, left untreated, can easily grow into a large tooth abscess and require a root canal and a crown rather than a small filling. Treating tooth decay early usually means a less invasive treatment will be required.
4. Visit our office twice a year. We can help you maintain a beautiful smile and ensure it stays healthy for a lifetime. The New Year is a great time to schedule your next dental checkup. Hope to see you soon!!!
