5 Benefits of a Dental Membership

Dental insurance is becoming unreasonably costly and is riddled with convoluted rules and limitations. Dental visits without insurance typically add up with each appointment and can be overwhelming, especially when more advanced dental work is needed. As an alternative, many dental patients are considering a dental membership plan. A dental membership plan involves paying a flat annual fee directly to the dentist’s office in exchange for all basic services that year (exams, x-rays, and basic cleanings when appropriate). Members are also given a certain percentage off the price of all other dental services. There are no waiting periods, no benefit limits, no contracts, and none of the other typical hoops and barriers present with traditional dental insurance.

A dental membership plan is your chance to receive standard preventative dental care and amazing deals on various restorative treatments for an annual/ monthly fee. Find out more about our in-house dental plans at Dentistry on Monroe in Charlotte, NC.

What is a Dental Membership Plan?

A dental membership plan is a dental savings plan and a superb alternative to dental insurance or paying out of pocket. While a dental membership plan isn’t health insurance, it is an alternative to dental insurance allowing patients without traditional dental insurance to receive quality dental care at reduced costs. Patients must pay an annual/ monthly membership fee directly to the dental practice for dental care and discounts on other treatments. Services included in an in-house membership plan vary across dentists and their patients’ dental needs.

Why are Dental Membership Plans Important?

A dental membership plan is important for patients who can’t easily afford the high costs of dental insurance or who are tired of the restrictions to care that come with dental insurance. It also reduces any waiting periods typical of insurance companies, allowing for faster servicing. More importantly, a dental membership is important in helping you save money by eliminating limits on the number of treatments covered under the plan. 

What are the main benefits of a dental membership plan?

The dental benefits of a membership plan include the following:

  • Cost Savings: A dental membership plan can be more cost-effective than conventional dental insurance plans. It has no deductibles, copays, or maximum limits on coverage. As a member, you can enjoy discounted rates on dental services, including routine cleanings, exams, and X-rays.
  • Access to Preventive Care: A dental membership plan encourages preventive care by covering regular cleanings, checkups, and other preventative treatments.
  • No Waiting Periods: Dental insurance plans have disappointing waiting periods for approvals. A dental membership plan typically has no waiting period for coverage. You can start using a dental membership plan’s benefits immediately after signing up for the plan.
  • Flexibility: A dental membership plan offers more flexibility than conventional insurance plans.
  • Convenience: A dental membership plan offers convenient online scheduling and payment options, making it easier for members to manage their dental care.
