Are your teeth telling you something?
How Does the Northeast Dental Plan of America Work?
The Northeast-Southeast Dental Plan is a network of private practice dentists and specialists who provide their services for plan members at reduced rates. It is not traditional dental insurance. It is a fair and cooperative method for lowering the cost of dental treatment. Doctors benefit by increasing their patient volume and, of course, patients benefit by receiving quality private care at substantial savings.
Simply enroll into an individual dental plan or a couple or family dental plan. Then select the dentist of your choice using the Directory of Dentists . Once we receive your Enrollment Application, we will mail you an identification card to be presented to the dentist’s office at the time of your appointment. When visiting a participating Plan dentist, you pay them directly as you normally would, but at the reduced rates as listed in the Plan Fee Schedule. Saving up to 50% off the dentist’s normal fees. Here are some of the exciting dental benefits you receive once you are a member:
|Low cost X-Rays and cleanings|
|Savings from 20-50% off most dental procedures|
|Reduced rates for treatment by specialists|
|Low yearly membership rates|
|No deductibles or co-payments|
|No restrictions on any type of treatment|
|No pre-certification or prior approval|
|No claim forms or paper work of any kind|
|No age limitations|
|No waiting periods for dental benefits to commence|
Who is Eligible?
The Northeast Dental Plan is available for anyone to join. They offer Single, Couple and Family membership rates. Any two people per household are considered a couple (including roommates), and three or more household members make up a family. Part time and full-time students away at school may also be covered under the family plan. NPDA also offers a special reduced enrollment rate for Groups, Unions and Companies of Five or More.
