When was the last time you went to the dentist?
Okay, okay, I know it’s not everyone’s favorite place. I’ll be honest: I’ve never been the biggest fan of the dentist. There was a time in my late teens where (I’m not proud of this) I avoided them like the plague. Karma came back around though when a few years later I finally decided it was time to go, and lo and behold, I had a cavity.
I’ve never had another one since, and I make sure to visit my dentist every 6 months like clockwork. After all, this is the only set of teeth I’ve got, so I need to take care of them!
This year, my company switched insurance providers and my old dentist is no longer in network, which means I’ve been tasked with finding a new dentist. So when I heard about Chewsi, the new app that let’s you find a dentist and save money, I downloaded it so fast!
The Importance of Oral Health and Hygiene
Before I dive into why this app is so wonderful, I wanted to touch upon a few key reasons why oral hygiene and health is so important, and why you should see your dentist at minimum, once a year. This might seem like common sense, but you’d be surprised at how many people tend to brush off (no pun intended!) the importance of good oral health.
Always, always make sure to brush your teeth and FLOSS. Flossing is definitely something I need to improve on, because simply brushing your teeth isn’t enough.
Good oral health can help prevent bad teeth, tooth decay, gum disease, and can help ward off medical disorders. An unhealthy mouth, especially if you suffer from gum disease, may increase your risk of serious health problems such as heart attack, stroke, or diabetes. If left uncared for, bacteria can grow in your mouth and lead to gingivitis, periodontitis, and even endocarditis (infection of the inner lining of the heart). Gross, right?! Regular visits to your dentist can ensure that your teeth and gums are healthy and can help treat any signs of plaque or infection you may have before it gets worse.
Why You Should Choose Chewsi
What’s wonderful about this app is that every dental service imaginable is available to you at a significantly discounted rate, from regular cleanings to teeth whitening to braces. The best part? You can use Chewsi’s services even if you are uninsured; no matter your situation, Chewsi’s got you covered. And, if you are insured, you can use Chewsi to save on services that may not be covered in your plan, such as cosmetic services.
Members of Chewsi pay no monthly fees, unlike traditional insurance. You pay for the services you receive, when you receive them, and Chewsi has no limits, restrictions, or exclusions.
How to Book using Chewsi
I’m due for my semi-annual cleaning in March, and finding my new dentist was so easy. Downloading the app and signing up only took me thirty seconds. I just entered my information and added a form of payment (which you can skip at the time of signup if you prefer) and you’re done.
Chewsi’s Find-My-Dentist tool was also user-friendly. Just enter your zip code, and Chewsi will locate hundreds of dentists in your area. You can set up your appointment in just a few minutes, and after your visit, you can pay instantly on your phone. No paperwork, no hassle, and the app will show you how much you’ve saved on the spot.
Downloading the Chewsi, finding a dentist, and using the app to pay couldn’t be any easier!
