  • No waiting periods – Most plans will make you wait 6 months for fillings or 12 months for major work.
  • No Deductibles.
  • Low monthly cost. Around $18 a month.

This gets you 2 cleanings a year for free. If you have a full mouth X-ray on your first visit that is $26.  Everything is based on a list of Co-pays for specific procedures that amounts to around 50-70% off the uninsured rate.  The only down side that I’ve found is the limited amount of dentists in the plan network.
