The Access Dental Plan is a discount or "reduced-fee" dental program. This program
is designed for health conscious consumers looking to maintain their oral health
and minimize their dental care expenses.
General dentists who participate in the Access Dental Plan have agreed to accept
a discounted fee as payment in full for each service
performed. These discounted fees are 20-60%* less than what a dentist would normally
charge. A sample table of Access Dental Plan discounted fees can be found above.
Access Dental Plan members who visit a participating specialist receive a flat 15-20%
discount off specialists' usual and customary fees**. This includes a 15-20% discount
- Orthodontists - braces
- Periodontists - gums
- Oral Surgeons - wisdom tooth or major extractions
- Prosthodontists - bridges and dentures
- Pediatric Dentists - child treatment
- Endodontist - extensive root canals

Access Dental Plan is NOT insurance. It is a discount plan provided to
DentalPlans.com through Protective Marketing Enterprises, Inc. Providers are subject
to change without notice. Specialists may not be available in all areas. Fees may
vary by region. The plan is not available in all states. Access is not the provider
of services under this plan. Access solely arranges for access to discounts from
independent third-party service providers and does not warrant or guarantee the
suitability and/or quality of any service provided. A member's participation in
this plan is governed by the terms of the membership agreement provided upon enrollment.
The Access Dental Plan does not make payments directly to the providers of services.
The member is obligated to pay for all health care services but will receive a discount
from those health care providers who have contracted with the program. Equal or
lower prices may be available through individual negotiations. Refund Policy: Members
who cancel during the first 30 days of membership by notifying Access Dental Plan
in writing and returning their ID cards will receive, within 30 days, a full refund
of membership dues. Any application/processing fee is not refundable (except in
Arkansas and Tennessee). Members may cancel after the first 30 days, and, in states
where required, will receive a pro-rata reimbursement of all periodic charges. This
plan is based geographically by ZIP code in terms of provider participating and
location. Fee schedules and savings may vary by ZIP code.
