Can I combine two dental plans for more savings?
Members cannot use two plans in the same office at the same time. However, you can purchase more than one discount plan from :DentalPlans to use at separate offices. For example, if your orthodontist participates in the Aetna Dental Access Plan and your general dentist participates in the UNI-CARE 200 Discount Dental Plan, you can purchase both plans to use at the appropriate office.
Can I confirm if my dentist is a part of a particular network?
Yes, you can search for a provider on our website under the provider search or you can give our :DP AtYourService™ team a call at 1-888-632-5353 . One of our :DP AtYourService specialists will be happy to verify what dental savings plans your dentist accepts.
Can I send my annual membership fee via U.S. Postal Mail?
Yes. Mail your payment to:
PO Box 9605
Uniondale, NY 11555-9605
Please make your check or Money Order payable to :DentalPlans
Can I update my credit card number in the member’s area of the website?
Yes, please go to the “Edit account Information” section and then select “Payment information.”
Can I use a dental savings plan with my current dental insurance?
Our plans may also be used to reduce your out-of-pocket dental care costs once you’ve reached the annual maximum on your dental insurance plan. You cannot use your dental insurance and your dental savings plan for the same procedure, in accordance with insurance policy rules. Your dentist can, however, help you to coordinate treatment using both your savings and insurance plans.
Do I have to file a claim after going to the dentist with a dental savings plan?
No. You simply pay the reduced fee at your dentist’s office, so there are no claims to file and no waiting for reimbursement.
Do I receive discounts if I see an out of network dentist?
Plan members will not receive discounts on dental care when visiting an out-of-network provider. Members must always see a participating dentist to receive the discounts associated with their discount dental plan. However, if a dental care provider would like to join a network, they may contact our customer service center.
Do you have a :DentalPlans app available?
We expect to be able to offer a :DentalPlans app soon.
Do you offer monthly plans?
To discuss possible alternative payment options, please call our :DP AtYourService team.
Does :DentalPlans offer payment plans for the membership fee?
We currently only accept payment in full for annual plan membership fees. :DentalPlans hopes to bring the consumer a quality product at the lowest cost possible. Accepting payments on a monthly basis increases the cost of processing, thus making the plans more expensive.
Does having a pre-existing condition disqualify me from getting a dental plan?
No. Unlike dental insurance, dental savings plans enable people with pre-existing conditions to get affordable dental care.
Does my dentist’s location affect how much I can save with a dental savings plan?
Depending on the plan that you join, prices can vary by location and provider.
How can I compare dental plans on the website?
Enter your zip code in the search box. Look below the logo of each plan provider and you’ll see a “Compare” box. Check that box for up to 4 different plans, and you’ll be able to see what each plan offers. If you need assistance, please contact our :DP AtYourServiceTM Team at 1-888-632-5353.
How do dental plans work exactly?

There are no paperwork hassles, claims to file, or pre-existing condition restrictions. You are paying for access to a network of dentists who offer reduced fees for a variety of procedures to plan members.

How do I receive my plan membership information?
To access your membership information online, simply log in to the Member’s Area with the email address and password entered during the membership process. Once logged in to your Member’s Area, you will be able to view and print your welcome letter, permanent membership card, and invoice.

Members may also request to receive their membership package in the mail.
How long does it take to process a refund?

How does the "Pays for Itself Guarantee" work?
The savings from the ADA recommended preventive treatments alone are more than enough to pay for the plan itself. If by the end of the year you haven't saved enough to cover the plan cost (based on these procedures), we'll give you your money back (excluding the processing fee). You must show invoice(s) with dates, fees paid, and services performed (for all of the following ADA codes: D0120, D0210, D1110), for each member of the plan. Guarantee excludes the Careington Select Plan, CVS iSave, :DP SmartHealth, and :DP HealthNow.
How old must a member be to purchase a discount dental plan?
You must be at least 18 years or older to purchase a discount dental plan. However, there are no age maximums.
How soon will my discount dental plan activate?
Most discount dental plans available on www.DentalPlans.com activate within 3 business days.
I don’t have a dentist; can you provide a list of participating dentists in my area?
Yes, our Plans by Dentist search provides a list of the dentists participating in savings plans in your area, along with information on what dental savings plans they accept.
I just signed up for a dental savings plan; will I be receiving a member's card to show to my dentist?
You may print your membership card by logging in to the Member’s Area with the email address and password you entered during the membership process. Once logged in to the Member’s Area, you will be able to view and print your membership cards, as well as your welcome letter and invoice. If you don’t have access to a printer, call the :DP AtYourServiceTM team at 1-888-632-5353 and we’ll be happy to mail a card to you. Currently, :DentalPlans does not issue plastic cards.
I want to switch to a different dental plan than the one I chose when I signed up, how soon can I switch plans?
You can switch your plan at any time during your membership. Contact our :DP AtYourServiceTM Team at 1-888-632-5353, for assistance.
If I get a dental plan, will it interfere with my Medicare?
No, as Medicare does not cover general dental care such as checkups, cleanings, fillings, or dentures. Medicare Advantage does cover some routine dental services, so check with your plan to see what dental services may be covered. You cannot use your dental insurance and your dental savings plan for the same procedure, in accordance with insurance policy rules. Your dentist can, however, help you to coordinate treatment using both your savings and insurance plans. Our plans may also be used to reduce your out-of-pocket dental care costs once you’ve reached the annual maximum on your dental insurance plan.

Participating pharmacies include Costco, K-Mart, Kroger, Meijer, Publix, Target, and Winn Dixie. You can even use your prescription card for mail order service to have your prescriptions delivered right to your door.
