Discount Dental Plans - This Is How They Work


Visitors: 179

Do you have a toothache? Do you have visible cavities? Do your gums bleed, especially while brushing your teeth? Do you currently have dental insurance? Do you intend to buy dental insurance? Well my friend, I highly recommend that you don't waste your money. The reason why I say that is because dental insurance does not cover any kind of pre-existing conditions. That means that if you have any of the above problems a toothache, cavities, gingivitis, or any other dental issues, you're pretty much out of luck because you'll be paying for those treatments out of pocket.

Dental insurance is not what it used to be. Years ago most decent jobs offered dental insurance coverage along with their health insurance package. You could go to see your dentist to get all of your basic issues taken care of, such as your cleanings, x-rays, etc. , everything except for any pre-existing conditions. Well, this hasn't changed one bit over the years.

I don't understand why people think that they're going to go in and pay a few dollars for dental insurance premiums and then immediately have all of their teeth fixed. It just doesn't work like that. Think about this for a moment, when you go to get insurance on your car don't they come out and do a look around on your car? Don't they take pictures of all sides of your car? Of course they do! The reason why they do this is because they don't want to pay for any damage that was already there. Well, dental insurance is the same way. It makes absolutely no sense to think that it would be any different.

The way to go these days is to purchase dental discount plans. Dental discount plans, also sometimes referred to as discount dental plans, offer discounts of anywhere from 10 to 60% on standard dental procedures. This is how they work. You join a discount plan, which costs as little as $80 per year for an individual or $150 per year for your entire family. Within one to three business days you can see a participating dentists in your area. All you need to do is go in and have a complete examination done, find out exactly what you need to have done, let the Dentist know what you can afford to pay for that day and pay them for the discounted procedure at the time of your visit.

Pre-existing conditions are fine, there are no waiting periods, no exclusions, no age limits etc. , the only stipulation to have a dental discount plan is that you must pay for your services at the time of your appointment. Dental discount plans are absolutely the way to go in 2007. I recommend that if you've been considering buying a dental plan, that you take a good look at discount dental plans.
