We are happy to share that one of our favorite philanthropic partners, Community Shares and the Madison Community Foundation are introducing what they call the “Big Share” on March 3, 2015!

The Big Share is an online day of giving for 70 local nonprofits dedicated to building a fair, just community and protecting our environment.

The Big Share is a fun, easy, and flexible way to donate to and to learn more about organizations that help our community. The Big Share will introduce you to new causes and nonprofits and allow you to share the stories of the work people are doing to make the world a better place.

We are pleased to announce the re-introduction of the Artisan Dental Health Plan, an affordable, easy to access dental savings plan, free of the drawbacks of traditional dental insurance, such as deductibles, prior authorizations, yearly maximums, waiting periods, hidden fees and exclusions for elective care.  We designed the Artisan Dental Health Plan to enable oral health care to be accessible and affordable.  

The Artisan Dental Health Plan offers patients comprehensive preventive dental care at a low annual fee for both children and adults.  The health plan is an alternative to dental insurance – which often times costs thousands of dollars a year for only minimal benefits.  In a twelve month period, patients who join the Artisan Dental Health plan receive two professional dental cleanings, two doctor exams, needed x-rays, an additional complimentary exam together with 15% off all additional restorative and cosmetic dental procedures. Children’s plans also receive a fluoride treatment.  

Those patients with active periodontal disease can also participate in the Artisan Dental Perio Plan which includes all of the previously mentioned benefits of the adult plan and up to 4 perio maintenance cleanings per year.

The Child Plan is $255/year, the Adult Plan is $295/year, and the Perio Plan is $495/year.  Financing is available through our partner Care Credit.

If you, a family member or friend do not currently have dental insurance, we invite you to consider the wide range of benefits offered by the various Artisan Dental Health Plans.

Monster Mouth

The American Dental Association has designated February as National Children’s Dental Health Month. ( This is a month to raise awareness of the importance of oral health and developing good oral hygiene habits. Children in the US miss 51 million School hours each year due to dental problems according to the NEA (National Education Association). Teaching all children to brush two minutes, two times a day can greatly decrease that number. Not to mention visiting the Dentist two times a year. The ADA has free, fun activities for kids to help ‘Defeat Monster Mouth’ on their website. Contact Artisan Dental today to schedule your child for an appointment!
