Starting on January 1, 2019, all North Dakota Blue Cross Blue Shield (“BCBS”) dental plans will still be managed by BCBS, but United Concordia will process the claims. Don’t worry, Saving Smiles was one of the first in the area to sign up and is already in-network with United Concordia!

New cards will be issued for the BCBS/United Concordia plans and will still have the BCBS logo, but the ID number will have 12 digits (previously had 9) and the back will say that claims go to Harrisburg, PA. Federal BCBS will maintain the same ID number, but claims will also go to United Concordia.

Employers may choose to leave BCBS and switch to another plan all together. In that instance, we are also still in-network with Delta Dental, Health Partners, Cigna PPO Plans, Total Dental Administrators and most plans with Metlife, The Guardian, Ameritas, Humana and Always Care.

We are excited to announce that Bailee has been added to our team of hygienists. She is a recent grad of the dental hygiene program at NDSCS. Originally from Moorhead, MN, Bailee likes shopping, trying new restaurants and staying active with her volleyball and curling leagues. Fun fact about Bailee? She was born on Friday the 13th!

Please help us welcome her on your next visit!

We finally found time to get out of the office and take new team photos. We are very excited to update our website with the beautiful smiles of our entire group! As always, Dan Francis, did a great job and it was so fun to be downtown around some iconic Fargo landmarks. Here is a sneak peek from the photo shoot!

Nicki, one of our awesome Registered Dental Hygienists, has moved into the patient coordinator role.

Our entire team was able to find a day that worked to get out of the office, kick back and learn the fine art of hand lettering from Jenna with Memories by Meyers. Jenna had us practice our cursive writing and then gave us some good pointers on creating beautiful letters. She also selected a quote for our team to letter on water colors. How fitting for the Saving Smiles team was “There is always a reason to Smile”. 🙂
