Navigating the world of insurance and healthcare? Don’t forget about your teeth! Dental care is so easy to overlook, but you know you gotta go. Even if your new job’s health plan doesn’t cover dental, your excuses are definitely running out. Because this as your lucky day, your wake-up call, the Universe telling you that there is a better way to get your dental checkups taken care of.

Behold, DentalSave!

It’s the ticket your pearly whites have been waiting for.

The first thing to know is that DentalSave is not an insurance plan. That’s because it’s a dental discount plan--a network of local dentists that offer pre-negotiated rates for services exclusively for DentalSave customers. You’ll always know the price of a cleaning, a cavity filling, or anything else you might need while in the dentist’s chair.

Everything you want to know, from the name and location of your preferred dentist to the exact rate for the services she or he offers, is all shared with you upfront. Just use their search tool to find an in-network dentist near you and book your appointment.

There’s a small monthly fee to join--as low as $9.99 for individuals--then just pay the pre-negotiated rate for the dental service you need. That’s it. Literally. That is it.

Should you use this pause to do a little happy dance? Yes.

You’re really going to get in the groove when you find out that with DentalSave there’s no such thing as a claim, a copay, or a dreaded enrollment period either. [Insert David Lee Roth jump here.]

The plan is simple. And the discount? Obviously amazing.

Visit DentalSave online to sign up, or to learn more. Your wallet will not only approve, but the Universe too.
