Do you have dental coverage? Do you think it’s not necessary or too pricey? Do you believe that it’s not something you need to worry about? One trip to the dentist could cost you your entire paycheck and then some if you have to have an emergency procedure done right away. Oftentimes individuals have the mindset that nothing will happen to them – that is, until it does. DentalPlans.com offers more than just dental savings plans. It provides peace of mind to members, by a company that cares – all at an affordable price.
What is DentalPlans.com?
DentalPlans.com is an online marketplace for dental savings plans, which are affordable alternatives to traditional dental insurance. Most plans activate within three business days, with emergency activation available if needed, and individuals and families can save 10-60% off their regular bills or most dental procedures at the dentist.
The company was founded in 1999 by George Michaelides and John Babyak who wanted to help people open their mouths (not their wallets) when it came to dental coverage.
Bill Chase, vice president of marketing for DentalPlans.com, said, “It was our goal to provide cost-effective options so people could get the dental care they needed and deserved. We’ve helped more than a million people since our inception, and we want to continue to enable people to live happier, healthier lives more affordably.”
Dental Savings Plans vs. Dental Insurance
Many people don’t realize that dental savings plans, often called dental discount plans, exist. If dental insurance is not offered by their employer, many people believe that it is not necessary or too expensive to pay out-of-pocket. However, that’s not the case. DentalPlans.com is perfect for all ages from kids to retired seniors.
Chase explained the differences between dental insurance and dental savings plans. “With dental insurance, you see pre-existing conditions, waiting periods, claim forms, annual maximums, etc. With dental savings plans, there are no health restrictions, no paperwork hassles, no annual limits, and no waiting. Most plans that you can sign up for on DentalPlans.com can be activated within three business days or sooner, if necessary.”
Chase also stated that DentalPlans.com offers immediate emergency activation, but notes the importance of not letting yourself get into that situation. “People don’t realize that you really can get the care that you need and deserve at an affordable price to help prevent a lot of painful situations and even life-threatening issues. Oral health is linked to overall health, so by taking care of our teeth, through regular routine at-home care and dental visits, we can help avoid heart attacks, strokes, or other serious conditions.”
Your Choice, Your Way
DentalPlans.com makes choosing dental coverage as easy as a trip to the dentist (with no cavities, of course). Their website allows users to choose from more than 30 different plans. And, they can easily search by dentist, procedure and even savings. A savings calculator is also available, which allows you to see how much you can possibly save on a particular plan and what the cost would be for a specific procedure.
There is a one-time minimal annual fee for DentalPlans.com members, which ranges from $79–$199 depending on the plan. And, aside from offering low prices, the company provides members with special perks. This includes, but is not limited to, referral rewards, longtime member recognitions and more. “We are grateful for our members and the special perks we offer are just a small token of our appreciation,” replied Chase. “We want members to know we are there for them during their dental journey and ensure they are equipped with the information and helpful tips and tools and options they need to make a choice that best fits their needs.”
Besides dental savings plans, DentalPlans.com also offers a few insurance plans, as well as ancillary benefits, which can be standalone or combined with their dental plan. This includes vision plans, prescriptions savings plans, hearing aid discounts, telemedicine plans, chiropractic and more. “We would love people to know that there are many options available to them at an affordable price that can really make a difference in their lives,” said Chase.
Be Educated, Get Results
Knowing your options and what is available is the best education. “Some people don’t even know dental savings plans exist,” stated Chase. “Education and awareness are the keys to helping spread the word and ensuring that people are getting the care they need, without thinking twice about it or worrying about how they can afford it.” The company’s mission is “to enable people to live healthier, happier lives, one smile at a time.” With DentalPlans.com, everyone has a chance to do just that.
