Are Dental Savings Plans Worth It?
Going to the dentist can be a daunting task, especially if you don’t have dental insurance or your insurance isn’t in-network for a certain clinic. But that doesn’t mean you can’t get regular dental care. Many dental offices offer dental savings plans, sometimes referred to as membership plans, for those who don’t have insurance.
Signing up for a membership plan with your dental care provider can help make sure you get the dental care you need- even without insurance! Keep reading to learn more about dental savings plans or visit our Shreveport Dental Savings Plan page for specifics on our plan.
What Are Dental Savings Plans?
Dental savings plans are membership-based discount plans for dental health care. These plans are a great alternative to dental insurance, and plan members typically save between 10-20% on the regular price of dental care and treatments. We offer a 20% discount on all services except full mouth implants. By joining a dental savings plan, you gain member access only to discounts that participating dental care providers have agreed upon. You pay the discounted rate directly to the dentist—no insurance needed!
What Do Dental Savings Plans Cover?
This all depends on the practice, but typically they cover the following:
- Cosmetic dentistry — veneers, Invisalign®, teeth whitening, smile makeovers, and more
- Restorative dental care — tooth extractions, dental implants, wisdom teeth removal, and more
- Preventative dental care — teeth cleanings, TMJ disorder treatment, pediatric dentistry, and more
Talk with your dental office to see what they provide with their membership plan.
