MAKE SURE YOUR SMILE IS PROTECTED

Finding the right dental insurance plan starts with knowing what you’re looking for. Here are a few things to consider when looking for or comparing plans.

WHAT DO DENTAL PLANS COVER?

 When it comes to dental plans, there's no "one size fits all" plan. Dental plans can vary greatly in their coverage offerings, but don't let that scare you! 

Plans will vary by their coverage, for example, some plans will cover implants while others may not. Some plans cover 2 cleanings a year, while others cover up to 4 cleanings a year! Check out the Direct Benefits Marketplace to compare, contrast, and find the dental plan that best suits your needs.

HOW MUCH WILL DENTAL INSURANCE COST?

There are quite a few variables that go into the final cost of dental plans. These variables might include the type of plan, coverage, deductible, dental needs, preferred provider, and location. Your annual maximum and whether a plan has waiting periods or not will also play a role in the cost of your dental insurance. 

Every dental plan will have a monthly premium, along with deductible, which can be an annual deductible or a lifetime deductible. Start the quote process to find out how much dental insurance will cost for you.

WHICH INSURANCE CARRIER IS THE BEST?

Direct Benefits offers dental plans through many insurance companies, but no company is "better" than the others. Which carrier is best for you and your family depends on your dental needs, your budget, and your preferred dentist. We recommend picking a plan based off your needs rather than by brand name!
