Frequently Asked Questions
A Dental Discount Plan is an alternative to insurance that fits many people’s lifestyles. For a small monthly membership fee, members receive a 20-50% discount on most dental procedures at participating providers. Members pay providers directly at the time of service. Note: dental discount plans are not insurance.
A Dental Discount Plan is a membership based service with a small monthly fee that provides members discounted pricing on dental procedures at participating providers with no limit on usage.
