Plan Fees

The Plan 
The plan is simple and affordable. There are no claim forms to complete, no pre-authorizations, and no waiting periods. Members are issued a membership card immediately upon enrollment with the Dental Care-50 dentist of their choice. If for any reason a member is unhappy with the dentist, they are free to choose another dentist on the plan.

General Dentristry
Members receive a yearly oral exam, cancer check and cleaning for only $42 (approx. a $125 value). This savings alone pays for the low annual fee of $75 per individual or $130 per couple. All additional work is completed at a 20 – 40% discount, when performed by a Dental Care-50 general dentist. Services provided by a specialist are discounted 20%. Everything is covered, including pre-existing conditions and dentures! A pre-set fee schedule is provided to members, so the cost of each specific dental procedure (and the savings) is known before any work is done. Everything is covered including pre-existing conditions and dentures. Any procedure relative to treatment not listed on this schedule will be discounted at 20% off your general providers’s customary fee.

Specialists
Specialists in our network do not follow the pricing outlined in this schedule, but perform services for 20% off their usual and customary fees to Dental Care 50 members.

Note About Dentures
The price of dentures does not include extractions or relines. One office visit is included for any adjustment needed. Additional adjustments will be charged. at $23 per visit.

Root Canals

Depending on diagnosis, root canals will be performed by either your general dentist or a specialist at a minimum discount of 20%.
The intial cleaning is $42. Additional cleanings within the same year are 20% off the usual and customary dentists’ fee.
