DentalSave is a reduced fee for service dental plan. We have a network of private practice dentists and specialists who provide their services for Plan members at reduced rates. It is a fair and cooperative method for lowering the cost of dental treatments.

Members make an appointment with a participating dentist on the Plan and pay the dental office a reduced fee for all dental procedures according to the Fee Schedule. No forms to fill out or reimbursement necessary.

When joining under the Yearly plan, you merely pay the yearly membership fee depending on how many people are joining. If you wish to join under the Monthly plan, there is a one time non-refundable processing fee of $20.00 plus the monthly membership fee. Please note that upon joining the Monthly plan, your credit card will be automatically charged the monthly fee that applies each month until the member calls to cancel the Plan. It is not a contract and can be canceled anytime by simply contacting us at 800.828.2222.
