Why it’s Good for Families

With 1Dental.com, you can add members of your household to your plan for $50 each per year as needed. Doing so means that you are able to save money on regular dental treatment as well as unexpected dental emergencies. In addition, if you have slightly older children, the savings on orthodontics alone could make the plan more than pay for itself. 

Why it’s Good for Students and Seniors

With plans as cheap as $99 per year for a single member, 1Dental.com can be a way for people like students and seniors—who often live on a budget and tend to neglect dental care - to save some money in the event that they need dental treatment. In addition, with the savings on preventative care, it makes them more likely to get treatment before dental issues become real problems. 

Which Areas is it Available in?

The plan is available across the country, with a network of more than 100,000 dental care providers. It is not available in Vermont and the Dental Access Plan is not available in Washington.  

Policy Types and Prices

Regardless of which plan you go with, 1Dental.com will give you access to a massive nationwide network of providers. The plan is ready to use within days of your online sign up, and online you can always find listings of the exact savings you can expect for each procedure. The plans also don’t restrict how often you use the discounts.

Application Process

Signing up for the 1Dental.com plan should only take the average person about 5 minutes on the company website or on the phone with a 1Dental.com representative. They don’t need an extensive medical history readout or a pile of forms to get the application processed. 

Customer Service 

You can reach out to 1Dental.com customer service by way of an online form on the company website or the customer help email or phone number. Alternatively, if you are in the Fort Worth suburb of Haltom City you could in theory go by the office, though that shouldn’t be necessary.
