Questions & Answers
What are dental discount and dental savings plans?
Discount dental plans and dental savings plans are the synonymous. They’re an alternative to dental insurance. With one of these plans, you would pay an annual fee to get discounts on your dental care of up to 60%.
Am I disqualified from getting a discount plan if I already have insurance?
No, you can still sign up for a discount dental plan even if you have insurance. But you can only use your discount plan after you’ve reached the annual maximum spending limit on your dental insurance policy (according to insurance rules). Also, you won’t be able to use your insurance and your discount plan to pay for the cost of one dental procedure (according to insurance rules).
If you’d like more info on this question, you may speak with your dentist.
How many times can I get discounts until I reach my limit?
There are no limits on how many times you can save on dental care with a discount plan. You can use your membership card at every dental visit and get a discount every time.
What kind of paperwork do I need to complete?
You won’t need to complete any paperwork. The discount from these plans will be applied in-office right after your dental care visit, so there’s no need to file a claim like you would with insurance.
Are there restrictions on where I can use my discount dental plan?
You can use your plan at any participating dental professional. You can use Avia’s search tool (choose the “Find Dentists” option).

No, but fortunately, it’s easy for your dentist to join the network. If they’re interested, they can contact :DentalPlans at 1-888-632-5353.
Why is there a fee schedule? Does that apply to me if I have a discount plan?
A fee schedule is a simply list of fees that a dental professional will charge for certain dental services. If you have a savings plan, you would be getting a discount on those fees.
