Many area colleges, including Brandeis and Wellesley College, utilize the Basix Student Dental Savings & Wellness Support Program. This program provides insured students access to contracted dental providers at a discount. There are no claims to file and no exlcusions. Wellesley Dental Group (providers Dr. Ejaz Ali and Dr. Femina Ali) is part of the Basix Dental Savings plan. More information on the program and the participating colleges are at http://www.basixstudent.com.
We know that it can be hard being away from home. But sometimes getting to your hometown/country for your medical and dental care is not possible. It’s very important, however, to maintain your oral health and continue to get professional cleanings and check-ups at least every six months. On the Basix student website, we noticed they have a neat tool for college students called “Campus Fit.” We’re not sure if this is accessible for all colleges that participate in Basix, or if it’s solely for Wellesley College students, but you can find it at http://campusfit.basixwellness.com/.
