The last time I visited a dentist was when I was a kid and my dental was covered under my father’s insurance from work. Without dental insurance a routine visit to the dentist for just a cleaning can cost an individual $100. For me this expense is a luxury that I just can not afford.
There are many Americans just like me who chose not to visit a dentist because their employer does not offer dental insurance or the premiums cost way too much. If you find yourself in this situation what do you do if you have a toothache or some other dental emergency happens to you or someone in your family? DentalPlans.com offers discounted plans to individuals or families who are searching for a way to save money on their dental visits.
An individual dental plan at DentalPlans.com starts at $79.95 for individuals and starts at $129.95 for families. Dental insurance premiums can cost a family up to $400 a year. This cost does not take into consideration the deductible your insurance may charge you per dental visit.
How does a dental discount plan work?
DentalPlans.com has a network of dental providers from all over the country who have agreed to offer their services at a discounted rate to individuals and families in exchange for new patients. As a member of the plan you pay the yearly fee to DentalPlans.com, print out your plan membership card and take it to a dentist who accepts the plan in your area.
It is recommended that adults and children get a dental cleaning every six months. An adult cleaning without insurance can cost $100 out of pocket. With the dental plan from DentalPlans.com I can get my teeth cleaned for only $56.00. A cleaning for my children only costs $45 with my dental plan.
Should I purchase a dental plan or dental insurance?
Do your math first before choosing between the two. If you or members of your family have significant problems with your oral hygiene then a dental plan is probably the best option for you in the long run. Check with your insurance provider to find out how much your premiums and deductibles will cost first.
