Questions & Answers
What is a dental discount or dental savings plan?
Dental discount plans and dental savings plans are the same thing, an alternative to dental insurance. With on of these plans, you pay an annual fee to get discounts on your dental care, usually between 20% and 60%.
What if I already have dental insurance? Can I still get a discount dental plan?
Yes, but you can only use your discount plan after you’ve reached the annual maximum on your dental insurance policy (according to insurance rules). And you won’t be able to use both your insurance and your discount plan for the cost of one dental procedure (also according to insurance rules).
If you want more info about how you can use your discount plan and your insurance together, you can speak with your dentist.
What’s the limit on how many discounts I can get?
There’s no limit on how many times you can save on dental care with a discount plan.
Do I have to I file a claim for reimbursement like I do with my dental insurance?
No, the discount from this plan will be applied in-office right after your dental care visit.
Can I use my discount dental plan anywhere?
No, but you can use the plan at any participating dental professional. You can use Sele-Dent’s search tool (choose the “Find Dentists” option).
So I can’t save anything if I go to an out-of-network dentist?
No, not through your discount dental plan. The good news is that it’s easy for your dentist to join the network. If they’re interested, they can contact :DentalPlans at 1-888-632-5353.
What is a fee schedule and do I have to worry about it?
A fee schedule is a set of fees that a dental professional may charge for certain dental services. These fees may apply to your dental care even if you have a discount plan as it states how much each procedure costs (before your discount is applied).
The dentist also uses this schedule to help speed up the process of filing for a reimbursement if you were to use dental insurance.
Does a discount plan only cover basic dental cleanings?
A discount plan can cover way more than just basic dental care. Many discount plans cover services like dental implants, cosmetic procedures, and braces. For more info on this, you can contact :DentalPlans’ Customer Service Department at 888-632-5353.
Do dental professionals lose money by participating in these networks?
It depends on how you look at it. Dental professionals do receive less money for care if you were to use a discount plan rather than insurance. However, because they are in the discount network, more clients go to them. So theoretically, the profit-loss will balance out for them and even bring in more business than if they weren’t in the network.
Do you have any coupons or special deals?
Yes! If you’re an Authority Dental reader, you can use the code AUTH10 at checkout to receive 10% off and two months free, no matter what plan you choose.
What’s your refund policy?
DentalPlans.com has a 30-day money-back guarantee, less the $20 processing fee, regardless of the plan you choose.
For more details on this, you can call :DentalPlans 1-844-473-9852 or read their Refund And Cancellation Policy.
