Parents can afford to give their kids healthy back-to-school smiles with Chewsi
As students prepare to return to the classroom, either physically or digitally, parents are busy filling out their kids’ supply checklists. But there’s one item, for both child and adult, that’s as essential as new clothes, shoes, or a backpack. It’s their back-to-school smile.
Just as it’s time to get back in the routine of the school year, it’s also important to get back in the habit of seeing the dentist—for more than just pearly white appearance. The prolonged spring-and-summer shutdown has thrown many people off their regular six-month check-up schedule, if they were going at all. The layoff has provided an opening for gum disease, cavities, toothaches, chipped or loose teeth, and other dental problems to progress unabated.
The good news is that, due to the shutdown, many people have unused money in their flexible spending accounts (FSAs) or health savings accounts (HSAs), that they can spend on a trip to the dentist. And for anyone looking for affordable dental care, there’s Chewsi.
Chewsi is a free app that gives anyone access to savings on dental care. It is not insurance, there are no premiums or monthly or annual fees. And it doesn’t matter if you have insurance or not, Chewsi will work for you. Just download the easy-to-use app and see if your dentist accepts Chewsi. If your preferred dentist does not accept Chewsi, or if they are fully booked due to backlog or haven’t re-opened yet, the app can help you locate another nearby practice.
Once you’ve received treatment—whether it’s a standard cleaning, a root canal, or a cosmetic procedure—there are no forms to fill out. You don’t even have to write a check. Just use the app to approve touchless payment through with your credit, debit, or FSA card, and pay the reduced rate right at the counter. Chewsi users save an average of 24% on dental care.
The end of summer is a tumultuous time—now more so than ever—and there’s plenty of uncertainty to go around. With Chewsi, you can make sure that you and your kids get the dental care you all need at a price that you can afford, and check one big worry off the long back-to-school list.
