New For 2015

Hello everyone and Happy 2015!!

On behalf of all the staff at Tucker Family Dentistry, we hope that this letter finds you well. I am writing to inform you of some recent changes at our office that might be of interest to you, friends, or family.  First, unless one has been asleep under a rock for the last 7 years, a person may have noticed a dramatic change in the way both healthcare is acquired and administered.  Guess what?  Its getting harder to get both  the coverages and the choices you want from your healthcare plan…..right?  If you are among the many who have been affected, you may have seen changes to your dental coverage too; that is, if you are lucky enough to still have dental coverage or could once afford quality dental care of pocket.  Tucker Family Dentistry offers reduced dental fees as a Preferred Provider for:

Delta Dental Premier
Guardian
Aetna
Cigna Savings and Cigna Radius plans and
Unicare GRID +

We also have our Prevention Plus Dental Savings ( PPDS) plan for patients looking for an affordable alternative to traditional dental insurance. There are no deductibles or waiting periods with your membership. PPDS is designed to help patients keep their regularly scheduled checkups as we all know intervention keeps everyone’s costs at a minimum.  Leisa can help an answer any questions you might have regarding PPDS.
 
Recently, with the addition of Dr. “Marta” Poczatek to our facility, we can now offer more affordable care to Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama covered patients, and a greater range of services and hours. You can find more information about  Dr Marta on our web or Facebook pages. She is available on Thursdays, and some Fridays by appointment. If you know of patients looking for a dental provider affiliated with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama and like the way that we provide care for our patients, we can help.  Dr. Marta is looking forward to meeting all of our existing and new patients.

So, If you have been in our office since September, you may have noticed several other new faces.

New to Tucker Family Dentistry is our full time hygienist, Lorin Dobbins. Lorin comes to us from Arizona State University’s four-year dental hygiene program. We are sure that you will find her a great fit for our office staff and welcome her to our team. Many of you will be hearing from Carrie or Lorin soon regarding your upcoming checkup visits. Please take time to meet Lorin the next time you are in our office.

Mr. Drew Patchett has been helping out with assisting and front desk work in our office since Labor Day. Recently, Drew was accepted to the University of Alabama School of Dentistry’s freshman class of 2015. Our congratulations go out to Drew on his accomplishment and we want to thank him for helping out with our staffing needs since September. We could not have done without him!

We’re glad to have our Tina back in the office after her shoulder surgery in October. Tina seems to be doing well and everyone is glad to see her always happy and smiling face.

In an attempt to outshow Tina’s shoulder surgery, Carrie has now returned from maternity leave after welcoming Lynnlee to the Hefner family. Congratulations to both Carrie and Justin on their new addition.

That wraps it up. We have a lot that is new in 2015; staffing, technology, and extended hours for your convenience. So please check out our website for updates and encourage others you know to do the same. We always feel that the greatest compliment we can receive is referrals from our existing patients. Thank you, and a healthy 2015 to all!

Sincerely,

Perron Tucker and staff
