MONARCH DENTAL OFFERS TO COMPLETE DENTAL WORK OF INDIANAPOLIS-AREA PATIENTS AFFECTED BY ALLCARE DENTAL CLOSURE
AND PROVIDES DISCOUNTED CARE FOR TRANSITIONING PATIENTS
01/19/2011 • Monarch Dental, a provider within the network of Smile Brands Inc, the nation’s top provider of business support services to dental groups in the United States, today announced it will take in Indianapolis-area patients left mid-treatment in their care after the closure of Allcare Dental and will offer discounted services to Allcare patients seeking a new provider.
Many dental procedures are done over an extended period of time. If care is not completed within the treatment schedule the patient is left with a painful condition or one that will further deteriorate over time. Monarch Dental is offering to see Allcare patients within one to two days from the point of their phone call to ensure they are receiving the proper care. They are also offering a complimentary exam and X-rays (regularly $124 - $197) to transitioning Allcare patients plus $100 off diagnosed services*. Patients will only need to provide proof in the form of a receipt or a dental plan to receive the offer. Monarch Dental also guarantees all Allcare patients will qualify for a minimum of $500 in financing (with valid ID and checking account).
“We are concerned over the amount of patients that are left midstream in their care and the dangerous and painful condition that leaves them in,” said Steve Laudicino, Smile Brands Inc., Area Vice President. “We had a patient enter our network who was left stranded by the closure who was mid-treatment in receiving dentures needed as the result of teeth lost due to chemotherapy. These cases will be given top priority. Additionally, there are a large number of patients in this market that are simply going to need care over time and need to find a new provider and we want to make sure they know they are welcome here.”
