Looking to save money on braces for your child? Got an upcoming root canal but don’t have dental insurance? Or, do you need cosmetic dentistry?
DentalPlans.com recently launched its “Dental HyGenie Plan Finder” to help people search for and compare dental plans based on savings for specific dental care procedures offered by the plans in their area.
The new tool, available online at DentalPlans.com, lets people choose up to five of the following dental procedures: checkups and x-rays; cleanings and sealants; fillings and crowns; braces; implants and veneers; root canals; gum treatments; dentures and bridges; tooth extractions; and pediatric dentistry. Online visitors also enter a ZIP code and select an individual or family dental savings plan.
Next, the Dental HyGenie Plan Finder will reveal the top five dental savings plans that will save visitors the most on the dental care procedures they selected.
“Everyone’s dental care needs are unique,” said Kristen Reineke, VP of Marketing for DentalPlans.com. “Whether you need a root canal, braces or dentures, the Dental HyGenie Plan Finder personalizes your search results to find the best plan based on the procedures you’d like to save on the most.”
According to a 2012 Consumer Reports survey, the biggest reason people delay dental work is cost. For the last four decades, the average annual dental insurance maximum has remained capped at around $1,000 – $1,500. This might be enough to cover basic procedures, like checkups and cleanings, but still requires consumers to pay hundreds of dollars out-of-pocket for major dental work, such as root canals and crowns.
