Many Americans are under the assumption that if they don’t have dental insurance, they have to pay astronomical fees in order to get proper dental care. Surprise—that isn’t true. In fact, most dental insurances require subscribers to meet a deductible while paying a monthly premium only for them to find out that certain services (such as crowns, bridges, etc.) are only covered at 50% (in some cases). So even if they do have dental insurance, they’ll likely still have to pay for something at the time of the dental appointment, depending on what the plan covers. Luckily, there are solutions for people without dental insurance that may be more convenient. Enter: dental membership plans.

What is a dental membership plan?

While dental insurance helps people that keep up with their dental hygiene diligently and go to their bi-annual check-ups every year, it may not be worth it for those that have dental phobia and/or need a lot of dental work. That’s where dental membership plans come into play! Some offices offer memberships where members pay a low monthly fee and receive a full year of preventive dental care. These plans allow people without dental insurance get proper dental care without having to reach a deductible, worry about annual maximums, denial of claims, or waiting periods.
