Low Cost Dental Programs

dental programsChoosing a discount dental plan can save you a lot of money on your dental expenses. With a dental plan, you get to choose from a list of dentists that have agreed to give discounts to individuals who carry particular dental plans.

Dental plans offer substantial discounts of 20 to 60% off of normal fees. When seeing a participating general dentist, payments are made according to the schedule of services on the plan. You are entitled to choose any participating dentist on the plan throughout the United States. There is no dollar limit on dental services, and no restrictions because of dental problems you may already have.

We have found a couple options for quality low cost discount dental plans we feel confident in offering to our clients – 1Dental (formally CareDP) and a number of plans available through

At ColoHealth, we represent many companies and search through the competition in order to find the best values possible.
