Dental insurance can be expensive and out of the financial reach for some individuals. This is why it's important for there to be options like discount dental plans, which, according to Forbes, are a more affordable option over dental insurance for many people. As the dental insurance world evolves, so is the design of the average dental office.
According to a recent article published by the San Antonio Express-News, the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio is opening a new $95 million oral health center. They hope that this new building will strike a clean balance between education and patient comfort.
Kenneth Kalkwarf, M.D., interim president of the health science center, told the news source that they used to have the attitude that learning skill sets for their students were the most important thing in their facility. However, this did not make for a very comfortable patient environment.
The goal of the new building is to put patients at ease and help them make a stronger connection with their dentists, so they will be more likely to comply with dental advice.
