Prince George County Offers Dental Discount Card Program for Residents
Prince George County — Recognizing the direct link between dental health and overall health, in particular oral cancer, Prince George County offers an affordable dental discount card program to promote the importance of preventive dental care and help residents save money.
Through its membership in the National Association of Counties (NACo), Prince George County launched the NACo Dental Discount Card Program in August 2012 to help families save money on needed dental care , orthodontic treatment and other dental care services through a network of participating private practice dentists.
The program, administered by Careington International Corporation and NACo, offers individuals and families affordable monthly and annual membership options to take advantage of dental care discounts throughout the year.
“We are excited to continue to offer this affordable, money-saving dental discount card program to our residents,” said Percy Ashcraft, County Administrator. “We know that poor dental health can harm our general health. In these tough times, many cannot afford to visit the dentist for check-ups and routine services, or for more advanced treatment they really need. But through this program, residents can get some welcome relief paying discounted rates for those important health services.”
NACo President Lenny Eliason, Commissioner from Athens County, Ohio, said, “Especially during these tough times, NACo is pleased to provide this dental discount program to our member Counties. Since this program is not insurance, anyone can join, and there are no limits on use. There are also no age or income restrictions. This program is the latest of many valuable services that NACo provides to our member counties.”
