DentalPlans.com is a site that offers discounted dental plans that you can use at any of their listed participating dentists. This is not a dental insurance policy so you can use the plan and the discounts as much as you need to without having yearly limits.
They have individual plans starting at $79.95/year and family plans starting at $129.95/year. There is also a special deal through their site for an additional three months for free. This plan can be used in combination with dental insurance policies to help pay for additional costs once your dental insurance maximum limits have been reached. They offer over 30 dental plans for over 100,000 dentists nationwide.
It is easy to sign up for a plan at DentalPlans.com and you can immediately use the printable discount card. With a dental plan membership you can save on routine checkups, cleanings, fillings, crowns, braces, root canals, oral surgery or dentures.
There are a few problems associated with this dental discount plan program. Many dentists don’t accept the plan, even though they have listed as a participating dentist. Another issue which may arise is the possibility of spending more for some dental services than what you would typically pay through an insurance plan. In addition, you cannot obtain any refunds for processed payments, there aren’t prorated refunds either. If you don’t cancel the plan, the automatic renewal system charges your credit card on file after your plan has expired.
Dental insurance is not that expensive and you never know when you may need an unexpected and unplanned procedure done. If you purchase dental insurance, without involving an agent who charges additional commission fees, you may be surprised at how affordable they truly are.

don't use this company
Do NOT use this company under any circumstances. They are an administrative nightmare. Once they have your credit card they automatically renew you when they want and how they want. If you try and cancel they give you a run around. I have had to dispute the charge twice thru my cc company. Companies like this need to be removed from the face of the earth!!!!
I had a great experience with Dental Plans. Don't understand why the others got bad service.
I wondered if these plans would really work. So I called ahead to the specialist dentist my regular dentist recommended, to see what their price was for the procedure I needed. I was quoted their regular price.
Then, I mentioned one of the plans listed that they took, and asked if they really gave a discount for this. They said, yes, and then told me the price using this dental discount plan, and it was truly 50% off.
I repeated to the receptionist...you mean I get that big discount if I have the plan? She said yes, again.
So I went for my dental procedure, and sure enough, I got that discount. It more than paid for my yearly fee here.
I am sorry others did not have this positive experience. I am about to renew my coverage and am very pleased with the savings. Thank you.
After one visit to the only dentist that carries dentemax, my wife was given a 5 minute check up and probe, and an X-ray even though we provided the X-ray of the troubled tooth. She spent more time with the hygienist. They want to do a root canal for $1276.00, a deep cleaning for $378.00, a crown for $1078, followed by another cleaning for $122.00. Altogether, future visits add up to $2854.00 I may have left something out above. Oh by the way, the initial visit cost $189.00. When I asked how much the future visits would be with dentemax, I was told, that was the dentemax price.......far from the quoted estimates for the needed treatments. I am going to call them tomorrow 3/14/14, but if anyone has any advice I would be grateful. I found out I saved a whole $30.00 on my initial visit. Being on a fixed income I can not afford their prices. I feel we have been ripped off. Over and out.
A major scam
Stay away from this organization. They provide nothing except a way to fund their company.
BAIT AND SWITCH....DOES NOT DELIVER!
THIS IS A BAIT AND SWITCH COMPANY. They offer plans that promise free cleanings and when you see the dentist, not one dentist on the list will do the free cleaning. All will say that a deep cleaning is needed just to get some business. They make promises that they cannot deliver and will not refund money. They automatically charge your credit card for each following year without your permission. The only way to get this stopped is to sign up on their site and change that option. I only picked one star because they would not give NO stars as an option. RUN FROM THIS COMPANY AND DON'T GIVE THEM YOUR MONEY."
