You’ve probably heard that wisdom teeth removal doesn’t come cheap. Guess what? We’ve got good news. We can extract wisdom teeth for a lot cheaper than most.
Not only that, but you’ll probably have a better experience. We like to take extra care with our patients. We hate to gloat, but our patients love us. We’re often told Dr. Puckett is worth the drive. We have a caring team and state of the art technology. That’s why we have patients who don’t mind the drive from Cincinnati to Wilmington. In fact, many drive much farther.
Why Our Wisdom Teeth Removal is So Cheap
Here’s the thing — we can likely save you $600 to $800 from most options you have for wisdom teeth. That may sound too good to be true, but the truth is we work really hard to be the most affordable option. Here’s how we keep our prices down so you save more.
First, we only charge you for the anesthesia time needed, not just what your insurance will pay for. We don’t like to milk your insurance company — and by extension, you. We cut our costs to make your procedure more affordable.
Second, we only code for the exact position of the teeth — not a level higher. This alone can save you $100 per tooth. Go ahead! Take yourself out to a fancy dinner — the money’s better spent; you’ve earned it.
Third, we base our fees on what we think is affordable and fair, not the ‘Fee Schedule’ book most oral surgeons use.
Finally, we remind the insurance company we’re the doctors, not them. We do only work that’s necessary, but we do it right — and as pain free as possible. Most insurance companies won’t cover commonly used extraction codes because they want us to overbill you. They also will review anesthesia coverage, which is as shady as it sounds.
Dr. Puckett, on the other hand, wants you to feel as comfortable as possible. We don’t cut corners, but we do cut costs. There’s a big difference.
An Affordable Comfortable Care Experience
So no, you don’t have to pay a fortune to have your wisdom teeth removed. We do everything we can to make our dental care more affordable and comfortable. That way you save not only money, but pain and anxiety. Like we said, we’re worth the drive and our patients love us. Come on out to Wilmington and see what all the buzz is about!
