Daily Deals for Dental Services and even Supplies?

User Level:

Posted by: gbdelivery  (8 years ago)
I can't help but notice how many website that are out there now that offer daily deals on just about everything! I have recently noticed a jump in sites offering dental services (cleanings, etc.). I am self-employed with no insurance, so for me, it is a great way to save money and get my teeth cleaned. Should I be concerned by using a deal? Will it get the same quality cleaning?

I even ran across a website today offering daily deals on dental supplies. I believe it was called DentasticDeals. I guess if the Dentist can save up to 75% on supplies......I can save on a cleaning!

Those daily deals on dental supplies that I sometimes use save me only 20% at most. Nowhere near 70%

Supplies are only 7% of the cost of running a dental office.

The average office is only running a 20-35% profit margin. It is not likely you will find a true discount for legitimately equivalent services more than 10%

Personally, I would avoid dentists who have to resort to such gimmicky advertising. The are hard up for patients or just starting out in practice.
