Recovery, Boomers Send RV Sales Roaring Back

RV dealer opens at former Sarasota convention center

“This industry was impacted by the economic crisis, as far as the drying up of consumer credit,” says Phil Ingrassia, president of the RV Dealers’ Association. “As things have improved, the economy has gotten better and there’s more credit available for consumer purchases like an RV.” [ READ: Where a House Costs Less Than a Used Car ] He predicts more strong growth this year, with shipments totaling nearly 310,000 for 2013. The lack of credit options and decline in consumer spending represent only two of several obstacles the RV industry has had to face. Ingrassia points out that California and Florida, which both have in the past seen strong RV sales, were also hit particularly hard by the housing crisis and subsequent recession. In addition, retailers first have to be financially healthy in order to sell vehicles. That means buying millions of dollars in campers and RVs to fill lots and showrooms, and some dealers don’t have that much cash at their disposal.

TONI KING: Why doesn’t Medicare cover glasses or dental?

Quesada explains. “Once assessments have been completed, the staff schedules appointments for those in dire need of dental care over a period of months. To assist these patients with their pain, the practice has reserved one Friday every few months to complete their treatment.” First Impressions Smile Center offers both general and cosmetic dentistry . Services offered include fillings, crowns and bridges, root canals and tooth extractions. Our practice rarely refers patients to other specialties and this flexibility saves patients time and assists in preventative care as only one dentist needs to be seen. Regular hygiene visits and check-ups along with home oral health routines ensure the patient’s mouth stays healthy at all times.

2) Discount dental plans are generally less expensive than traditional dental plans. These are plans that give a discount for services, but your doctor must be part of the plan and agree to give the dental discount. Make sure you understand which dental plan you pick because many can have a 6 month to a 2 year wait or longer for expensive dental procedures such as crowns, implants, etc. John, you also asked about vision benefits including glasses.

Susan E Lunson Dentist. With Snap-On Smile, we can give our patients the smile theyve dreamed of at a more realistic price.

There’s no cap on dentists’ fees

Clinic chains: Cheaper but less reliable? Priyanka Vora this site Mumbai: Much like restaurant chains, dental clinics are opening up franchisees across the city. And these provide you with a menu too by listing the different treatments they specialise in, along with their prices, special offers and bulk-order discounts. At present there are at least four dental chain clinics operating in the city. These clinics work on the principal of buying implants and other prostheses and material required in dental treatments in large quantities, therefore providing cheaper treatment. Chain clinics are brands in themselves, unlike private clinics where a well-known or established doctor commands a premium in fees. As we are a dental chain, we have a 10 to 15% cost advantage.
