Okay, I need some help this week. My daughter lost her first tooth…and it’s about time! She has been giving us the “loose tooth update” every couple of hours for the last few weeks. I was almost tempted to wiggle it out in her sleep just to get it over with! The last night before it came out she told me she was sure it was dangerous to sleep with a loose tooth…oh the drama!!
So the tooth losing brought up a question. What’s the going rate for the tooth fairy these days? I remember her bringing me a quarter, maybe 50 cents if she was feeling generous. She brought my older boys a dollar and that was 5 years ago. Has inflation affected the tooth fairy?? Well, she stayed true to form last night and brought a dollar. I think that may be where the tooth fairy tops out for the Jorgensens. It’s a nice round number, and it’s not easily lost under the pillow!
Again, everything goes back to dentistry in my mind! I decided I wanted to follow the tooth fairy’s example. If she doesn’t let inflation affect the price she pays for teeth, I’m not going to let it affect what you pay for teeth either. Here’s the deal: If you have unscheduled treatment you’ve been waiting to get done, now is your chance to do it “inflation free”. I’m going to drop our prices to what they were 5 years ago- and I’m going to keep them there until the end of January. That means $100 off crowns, $110 off veneers, $150 off implants… you get the point. You won’t see these prices again (in fact, you haven’t seen them for the last five years!).
BONUS: You may have insurance money or flex spending dollars you need to use up before the end of the year (remember, you’ve already paid for these benefits and if you don’t use them, you lose them…). We will help you maximize what you have.
So, if you’ve been waiting to get your treatment done, call and schedule before December 15th to take advantage of the “tooth fairy”special – 5 year ago prices on everything. Can’t wait to see you soon! 801-756-3737
(Work scheduled before Dec. 15 and completed before Jan. 30th qualifies.)
