A dental membership plan is a direct agreement between a patient and their dentist, with no insurance middleman in the way. Unlike traditional dental insurance, dentists design the treatment plan, set the subscription price, and control the fee schedule. There are no deductibles, waiting periods, annual maximums, denials of claims, or pre-approvals. A dental membership plan puts dentists in control, lowering cost and administration burden. As a result, dentists can pass savings to their patients.
