It’s safe to say that the majority of people enjoy getting something at a discount. The higher the regular price of whatever the particular item may be the better received a discount is. If you’re in the market for a vehicle, and the list price is $15,000 but after some stellar negotiations on your part and some discounting on their part you were able to only spend $10,000, you are leaving the dealership much happier because you were able to get what you needed and save money at the same time.
For those who do not have dental insurance, the cost of getting certain procedures done can be overwhelming. Many local Ottawa dental offices are able to offer payment plans to those who are uninsured or under insured. Some other dental offices take a different approach, which includes offering a discount to those who pay in cash. “Dentists have always had the ability to offer discounts to cash-paying customers, as long as the savings didn’t exceed insurance network discounts. In fact, Williams said she used to get a 5 percent discount from Fowles’ predecessor. But more dentists are marketing membership plans, in which patients pay a set annual or monthly fee, which typically covers preventive care and entitles them to discounts on other work, such as fillings and crowns.”
As long as any discount is in line with what can legally be done, the benefits for the patient and particular dental office are great. The patient is happy they are able to get a much needed dental procedure at a price they can afford and the dental office is happy to be able to accommodate a patient, which will more than likely help keep them as a patient for the long term.
The discount model may be something that is only limited to certain dental offices, so make sure to consult with your local Ottawa dental professional to see if they are able to accommodate you.
