Patient Appreciation Plan

At Twickenham Family Dentistry, we realize that one of the most common reasons people avoid needed dental care is due to the cost. To address this, we’ve created our Patient Appreciation Plan. Our goal is to help those members of our dental family who do not have insurance, yet need predictable costs for their dental care. The plan provides easy access to preventative services, such as cleanings, and makes other treatment more affordable.

Membership Fees

$200 for an individual membership (One adult member of a household)
$500 for a Family plan of 3 ($100 per additional child)

Member Benefits over a one year period:

  • Two routine cleaning visits (includes doctor’s dental exam, any X-rays/radiograph needed, and our oral cancer screening)
  • Any required emergency evaluations and X-rays needed at those visits
  • 30 percent off other services

Membership Terms & Conditions

This plan is not an insurance plan, and fees are determined by a straight, across the board discount from our office’s set fee schedule, not by an insurance company.

There are no waiting periods for needed care; nor any predeterminations, maximum annual benefit amounts, deductibles, or denials.

The plan applies to care received within 12 months from the start date of the plan. A one week grace period will be given for completion of the second routine cleaning appointment.

Both routine cleaning appointments must be scheduled at the initiation of the plan.

No benefits continue after the 12 months period. (This is designed to ensure that patients stay healthy receiving their needed treatment, exams, and two cleanings each year.)

This plan is not available for individuals who already have dental insurance, nor can it be used in conjunction with or secondary to dental insurance.

No benefits are transferable among individuals.

Please note that periodontal care scaling and root planing, full mouth debridement, comprehensive periodontal evaluation, are excluded from this plan’s inclusion but are subject to the 30 percent fee reduction.

Tooth whitening and orthodontic services are not covered by this plan in any manner and will be subject to the regular fee schedule for Twickenham Family Dentistry. This plan applies to services rendered by our office only and does not apply to any fees incurred from a specialist referral made by our office.

Frequently Asked Questions

Professional teeth whitening in Huntsville, AL means allowing our prescription-strength whitening gel to penetrate your tooth enamel and break down stain molecules. While this can create tooth sensitivity at times, it does nothing to harm your teeth and has a long track record of safety. Additionally, Dr. Brian Cook will not prescribe a teeth whitening treatment unless your oral health suggests a safe whitening experience. Woman smiling after teeth whitening in Huntsville

It’s important to remember that tooth sensitivity is temporary, but you reduce the likelihood of sensitivity by following the instructions provided by our dental office and not using over-the-counter products. When you use store-bought systems, you are not under the discretion of a dental professional. And the treatment may be abrasive and lead to tooth sensitivity.

At Twickenham Family Dentistry, your root canal in Huntsville, AL will take some time to complete, but it will not be especially painful.Woman getting root canal in Huntsville al

Painful root canals are the ones performed when the patient has an active root infection. In our dental office, our Huntsville, AL dentist, Dr. Brian Cook, addresses the infection before beginning your root canal therapy. During therapy, you can let Dr. Cook know if you are uncomfortable, and he will address the problem immediately.

What is Root Canal Therapy?

Root canal therapy is a tooth-saving treatment performed on a root-infected tooth. Your Huntsville, AL dentist makes sure the area is numb, and then he removes the infected root and pulp. He follows this therapy with an antibacterial agent to promote healing and a temporary filling to close off the area. At your next appointment, Dr. Cook may recommend a tooth crown in Huntsville, AL if the root infection compromised the stability of your tooth.

A dental crown is a cover that fits over an existing tooth. It is shaped and shaded to match your surrounding teeth, absorbs bite impact, and allows you to enjoy your favorite foods without worry.

Prevention dentistry is a multi-pronged approach to optimal oral health over the long-term, and dental x-rays in Huntsville, AL play an essential role.

Preventive dentistry includes a great oral health routine at home—generally brushing and flossing twice daily and reducing sugar and acidic intake through foods and drinks. Additionally, you should see your dentist twice per year for exams, cleanings, and x-rays as needed.  These recommendations also reflect guidelines put forward by the American Dental Association.

At Twickenham Family Dental, we take x-rays to allow your Huntsville, AL dentist to see between teeth, the area where most cavities begin. And our x-rays are designed to spot small problems before they become costly or painful issues down the line—including deep cavities, root infections, oral infections, and dental emergencies.

In our Huntsville, AL dental office, we implement digital sensors that emit minimal radiation to ensure our patient's safety, and we only take x-rays as needed.

A preventive dentistry schedule in Huntsville that includes digital x-rays is your best course of action for a lifetime of healthy teeth.

We encourage you to schedule your dental exam today.
