How to Finance A New Million Dollar Smile Here in Rochester

Tuesday, August 30th, 2022

Everyone values a bright smile. Of course, there is a large majority of people that were not born with a smile they feel confident in. Luckily, there are plenty of treatment options available that can give you that million-dollar smile that you feel proud of. However, if you live in the city, you may notice an influx of providers. It can be difficult to find a dentist that meets all of your needs. Use these tips when searching for a new dentist in Rochester!

Remember You’re Worth the Investment

Before you start reading about what it takes to finance a great smile, it is important to realize that you are worth the investment. Many people put off dental work because they are worried about how they will finance it. This can be especially difficult with unexpected costs always seeming to come up. About 99.7% of adults think that a beautiful smile is an important social attribute. Feeling good about your smile will boost your confidence and can open doors to other opportunities.

Dental care is not just about cosmetics; it’s about your good health. It’s predicted that the global cosmetics market will reach 805.61 billion dollars in 2023, based on growth projections. In 2017, it was worth about 532.43 billion dollars. That’s a lot of money spent on cosmetics! Imagine if a small percentage of that money was spent on dental care. Everyone would have a million-dollar smile and feel great. You are worthy. You deserve to feel good about your smile, and there are ways you can finance your smile affordably.

Research Provider Payment Plans

Your first option to finance your dental work is to ask about payment plans at your dental office. Many dentists offer a pay-as-you-go plan for treatments like braces. About 4 million people in the United States wear braces, and about 25% of those patients are adults. Many orthodontic patients use payment plan options to make braces more affordable. Typically, the plans will require a down payment, followed by affordable monthly payments. You may have to shop around to find a provider that offers payment plans that you can afford.

Negotiate Your Options

Patients often do not ask for discounts at their dentist’s office, but they should. Consider asking your provider about any discounts that they are offering, or how you can make the services more affordable. Some providers will throw in added-value services like free teeth whitening. Negotiating the cost of services can reduce your bill. Some providers offer a cash price for services that can offer significant savings. If you don’t ask for discounts and other ways to save, you will never know if you can make the services more affordable. Ask for ways to save.

Ask About Dental Loans

If your provider does not offer a payment plan, consider working with a dental loan company to finance your new smile. A dental loan company is a loan service that specializes in providing the finance that you need to cover the cost of dental care. You will need to have good credit or a co-signer with good credit to take advantage of this option.

Use Your HSA

If you have a health savings account, you may be able to use it to cover the cost of your new smile. Using an HSA (when permitted) is an easy way to finance your dental work. Some plans allow it, while others do not. Connect with your HSA provider to learn if your account can be used to cover dental work. You can also enroll in a dental insurance plan to help finance your dental work. Make sure you do the math before you decide on this path. Dental insurance will typically cover 50% of most restorative work, but it does not cover things like veneers and other “strictly cosmetic” procedures.

A new smile can bring you confidence that you never imagined. Before you decide that you can never finance a million-dollar smile, talk to a local dentist about payment plans, and explore other options throughout the city. Remember, you are worth the investment.

Tips and Tricks for Driving Safely During Rochester’s Winter Storms

Thursday, February 18th, 2021

By Sammi Cohen

Currently, Rochester is experiencing a mixture of wintry precipitation and snow, which is solidifying into icy road conditions as well as slick sidewalks. Furthermore, as ice collects on power lines, they become weighed down and more likely to break. This is causing power outages that could potentially last for days. Therefore, it has generally been advised that Rochester residents prepare heavily for the winter storms, taking into mind not only the road conditions over the course of the storm, but also the items that they will need in order to stay safe at home.

A Gym Community Aims to Help Members Stay Sober

Tuesday, February 16th, 2021

By Melissa Brewer

The COVID-19 has had far-ranging impacts on all aspects of life and the economy. With schools, restaurants, and gyms closed, perhaps permanently, life has been upended for millions.

Some of the most harrowing effects of this include things like divorce and increased drug use. Studies have shown that those who get regular physical activity are 30 percent less likely to get depression. However, the closure of gyms threatens even folks who would normally be quite active.

This can have cascading effects in all aspects of life, including marriages. Relationships are strained, sometimes leading to divorce in these troubled times.

One gym, called The Phoenix, is doing what it can to help people stay active and healthy in body and mind during the pandemic.

Highlights from the Fringe

Highlights from Rochester's Fringe festival. [PHOTO: jasonwilder.org / wilderstreet.tumblr.com]
By Joanne Brokaw

Temperatures are falling and the Fringe Fest is a distant memory. Well, technically it’s only a few days in the past, but given the rapid change in temperature it feels like a season ago.

This was the fourth year for the First Niagara Fringe Festival, but it was the first time I’d ever attended. I love Rochester and I love going downtown. But to be honest, I generally avoid events where there are lots of people or the potential for traffic congestion. Since I had a press pass, though, I decided to take full advantage of it, and for 10 days I immersed myself in the fun.

And I do mean fun. Here are a few of the highlights from my week at the Fringe…

Park Avenue Hospital

By Joanne Brokaw

Back in May, we noted National Nurses Week with a piece on Ida Jane Anderson, New York State’s first registered nurse. John Zicari, a reader from York, Maine, wrote to tell me that he’d been doing some genealogical research on his family from Rochester, and shared a family photo of his great aunt, Katherine Fitzgerald Osborn. She was a nurse at what John had been told was Rochester’s Park Avenue Hospital. There’s no date on the photo but, John says, “She died in 1925 so it is pretty early picture of the facility.”

I love genealogy and especially old photos. But I had to confess: I’d never heard a hospital on Park Ave. Cafes? Yes. Art galleries? Yes. A hospital? No.

But as my grandfather used to say, you learn something new every day…

By Joanne Brokaw

Driving down East Main Street recently, I spotted the name “Martha Matilda Harper” engraved on a building near the old Beech Nut packaging plant. My interest was piqued, since the building at 1233 East Main Street external link currently houses Tire Trax sales and service. It turns out that the facility is the former laboratories for Martha Matilda Harper, Inc.

I can’t believe that I’d never heard of Martha Matilda Harper, but we can thank her for just about everything having to do with our modern salon experiences, as well as her groundbreaking business methods that pioneered modern retail franchising…

The First Niagara Fringe Festival opened this week, with over 500 shows happening at more than two dozen venues over ten days. But the heart of the Fringe is the Spiegelgarden, located at the corner of Main and Gibbs Streets, across from the Eastman Theater. There are shows, artwork, food and more, including the centerpiece Spiegeltent, which is home to the Cabinet of Wonders, Princess Wendy’s Late Night Tease Room, comedian Jamie Lissow, Silent Disco and Brown Bag Disco.

I confess I’ve never been to the Fringe, now in its fourth year, but after I did the Remote Rochester tour this week I just had to go downtown for opening night festivities at the Spiegelgarden. What amazing wonders await you! Here are a few of the things happening at One Fringe Place…

By Joanne Brokaw

I’ve got a bit of a dilemma reviewing the Remote Rochester external link event at this year’s First Niagara Rochester Fringe Festival. If I tell you too much, I might give away some of the surprises and ruin the experience. If I don’t tell you enough, you may not understand what it’s all about and miss what might be the most fascinating journey you’ll take through the streets of Rochester.

So I need to find a balance. I’ll begin with this question:
Do you trust me?

A History of the Charlotte Lighthouse

By Joanne Brokaw

If there’s a cemetery tour happening in Rochester, you can be sure I’m there. For anyone interested in local history, there’s no better place to find unusual stories and bits of trivia, and I’m fascinated by the history buried all around us.

A few weeks ago, the City of Rochester hosted the annual Genesee River Romance weekend external link celebrating the Genesee River and its surrounding trail and gorge system. In 2014, I took full advantage of the weekend of events that include tours of the old subway and aqueducts, the Rundel Library, the Falls, and cemeteries. Somehow, I missed the adverts for this year’s event, so I only had time to catch one thing: the tour of Charlotte Cemetery…
