Economical Alternative to Dental Insurance
Jenny Simcox, Kansas City, KS, (913) 432-0765
Our partnership with Dental Practice Services™ has allowed us to offer an affordable way for our patients without insurance to take care of their dental needs. The Premium Plus Plan has allowed us to convert emergency patients into patients that can now afford to come on a regular basis. Because of the small monthly premium we have also been able to retain our patients that have lost their dental benefits or have retired and no longer have insurance coverage.
One of the best things about the Premium Plus Plan is that it is “OUR” dental plan. When patients sign up for the Premium Plus Plan they are signing up with our office only. This keeps them in the practice which is a win/win for both the patient and the dental office. The patients win because they are able to get affordable dental treatment and we win because we see our patients on a regular basis and know their oral health needs are taken care of. Treatment for our patients is decided by our patients and our doctors, not an insurance company.
We are very happy with our decision to become a part of the Alliance.

The Private Dental Plan™ program was set up to benefit the dentist. It does that better for us more than any other plan that I’ve been involved with and unfortunately, I’ve been with more than a few. I decided to join the day I added up all of my write-offs on the plans that I participate in. I am now making more money with fewer patients because of DPS.
I get high quality patients for My Plan and have more control with patient treatment planning. There is no plan administrator, who knows nothing about my practice, trying to figure out how not to pay me. You don’t have to worry about denials or spending time figuring out the insurance company’s game.
The Private Dental Plan™ program is so easy to work with and it has had a tremendous positive impact on my practice. My patients prefer my plan because they know what they are getting and can get the dental care they want. I love the being part of the Alliance and enjoy working with Greg and the staff. I would highly recommend this to any office and don’t know why any office wouldn’t consider this.

I wanted to let other doctors know how well the Private Dental Plan™ Program works for me. I do not take any dental plans and participate in only two insurance plans besides this. The PDP program works well for me because of the high monthly income and ease of the administration of it. My Plan works well for patients who are not eligible for insurance and helps sell our treatment plans. The Program is financially beneficial to both the patient and our office.
I would highly recommend the Dental Practice Services and the PDP Program to any dental office and each should take a serious look at our Alliance. Our Alliance of dentists now has a way to compete against the insurance companies.

I have been using the Private Dental Plan™ Program since it’s inception in July 2002 and I want to tell other doctors how well it is working for me. This is by far the most profitable plan that I have been associated with and works better for me than any insurance plan available. I have been writing off huge adjustments from insurance companies and with my plan, the large monthly income helps my cash flow. We get paid faster and my private fee is used.
The best aspect I have noticed is how easily it works for the front office staff. My office manager has a lot less work with my PDP then any other insurance plans because there are no claim forms and the patient knows exactly what they owe.
I prefer the Private Dental Plan™ Program and I’m writing this so that other offices take the Alliance seriously when considering their business options. Feel free to call me or my office manager, Kelly, at (913) 647-8700.

I have been utilizing the Private Dental Plan™ Program since March 2004. I wanted to let other doctors know that it is a valuable option to extend to patients with no current dental insurance coverage. It is the only dental coverage plan that I offer in both of my practices. It helps keep patients coming back to my practice to maintain their preventative care and allows them to be more accepting of treatment plans, using my Private Dental Plan™.
One advantage to this is that I can customize my plan to what I want to provide and know the monthly income from premiums alone, makes it profitable. My private dental plan was set up by my office and we can perform the desired dentistry necessary without large write-offs by my office. The patients get the treatment needed knowing their costs up front.
I would highly recommend the Private Dental Plan™ Program and the Alliance to any dental office considering other business options. This allows us to rely less on insurance companies and provide the quality of care our patients deserve. Greg and Kristi are excellent to work with, to help set up and manage a plan that works for you.

I have been using the Private Dental Plan™ in my office since it began in October 2002 and continue to use it as a significant portion of my practice.
This is an excellent and profitable endeavor for dentists. Instead of adjusting off per insurance companies, the monthly income from the plan creates a nice cash flow for my office. We get paid faster and my fee schedule is used, not some insurance UCR.
The best aspect I have noticed is how easily it works for the front office staff. Dental Practice Services staff is great to work with as they do what is best for the dental office. There is much less administrative work because there is no paperwork or claims processing, which saves me a lot of money. My private dental plan is considerably better than any insurance company has available.
I enjoy being associated with The Alliance and I would recommend this to any office. Please consider joining our group so that we can be stronger against the insurance companies, and offer better alternatives to your patients.
Feel free to call Beckee at 816-554-7656 if you have questions.

We are very happy with our decision to use the Private Dental Plan™ program and we would highly recommend DPS to any office. They are great to work with and Kristi is very prompt in her responses and staying on top of all situations. The patients really like it and we continue to sign 1-2 people a week who want something else besides insurance. The best part is our plan is so easy to work with, simple to administer, and profitable for the practice. Having DPS as a partner to help operate our Plan is important for this office and we will continue to work with them. Feel free to contact me if you have questions.
Kelly R. Fein, Practice Administrator – Garbis Dental Associates, Columbia, MD, (410) 730-3800
Offering our own plan is one of the best decisions Garbis Dental Associates has made. I would recommend the Private Dental Plan™ program to any office because it is easy to administer, profitable and eliminates third party issues. No more waiting for preauthorizations, attaching x-rays to claims or appealing claims. Patients receive the treatment they need without wait times or denials. Patients love this! Retirees and families with no dental insurance through an employer finally have an affordable option. DPS, especially Kristi, are hands on and promptly process new applications and renewals. Our partnership with DPS is great and we highly recommend the Private Dental Plan™ program to anyone.
