The Careington Care 500 Series program is a discount
or "reduced-fee" dental plan with added savings included on
vision, lasik, and prescription drugs. As a member, you may take advantage
of savings offered by an industry leader in dental care. Careington
International Corporation is one of the most recognized professional dental networks
in the nation and boasts a provider network of over 67,000 participating dentists.
All dentists must meet highly selective credentialing standards based on education,
background, license standing and other requirements.
General dentists who participate in the
Careington Care 500 Series program have agreed to accept a discounted
fee as payment in full for each service performed.
These discounted fees are less than what a dentist would normally charge. To realize
discounts at a participating provider, show your membership card and pay for the
total bill, less the applicable savings, at the time service is rendered. A sample
table of Careington Care 500 Series discounted fees
can be found above.

a 20% discount at:
