3 Shocking Things Quality Dental Plan Is NOT (That May Surprise You!)

At Quality Dental Plan, we are a dental practice resource that aims to help independent dentists like you increase your revenue, get more up-front cash payments, improve collections and generate more new patients. QDP does a lot to help dental practices across the US, but contrary to popular belief:

  1. We are NOT insurance – rather, we aim to help dentists decrease their reliance on third parties.
  2. We are NOT a software company. In fact, QDP works with your practice management software — and there are no transaction fees or new programs or apps for your team (or your patients) to learn.
  3. We’re also NOT a “dental discount plan” – that’s a term specifically defined under state laws that you definitely don’t want to mess with. Rather, we show you how to create your own in-house dental program as well as present it properly to the public.

How do we do all of this?

With our super easy-to-implement plan and our proven methodology. And you can rest assured that you have complete control of your program to include both fees and services with no third party involvement. The relationship remains 100% between you and your patients. The way it should be.

Plus, we’ll show you how to easily structure, track, manage and account for your own in-house dental program. And everything you need to promote your practices program is included.

Hear what dental practices have to say about QDP!

“QDP has greatly increased our number of fee for service patients, and allowed us to avoid becoming dependent on insurance companies like so many other practices have done.  The treatment plan acceptance has increased, and there are no yearly “limits” to what a patient can have done. It puts the decision-making power back into the hands of the dentist and their patients. The protocol was simple to implement with the superior training we received from QDP.”

Overcoming the #1 Dental Patient Objection to Treatment

In an ADA report released at the end of 2014, it was reported that financial issues are the number one reason for delayed dental care. Now, as a dentist, this may not come as any surprise to you, although it is certainly frustrating to hear.

Many Americans believe that if they don’t have dental insurance coverage, then they cannot access care. Even those with dental benefits believe that comprehensive dental treatment is simply unaffordable.

This is a big reason why I developed Quality Dental Plan. My own patients didn’t value dentistry and many were unable to proceed with treatment because of cost concerns. No one’s financial situation should prohibit them from getting the care they need. That’s where a dental savings plan like QDP comes in.

With a plan like QDP, patients pay upfront for a year’s worth of preventive care, with the option for further discounts. The cost, determined by the dentist, is often less than what they would pay if they bought traditional insurance. And the headaches related to insurance are eliminated – no more stressing about deductibles, copays and maximums.

Dental savings plans also reduce headaches for the dental team. No more struggling to get through the piles of paperwork, or waiting for reimbursements to come in. With QDP, the dentists gets paid immediately and even better, gets to keep 100% of what they produce.

It’s not acceptable for our patients to forego dental care because of affordability concerns. Offering a plan like QDP will help dentists overcome the number one dental patient objection and allow them to reach countless more patients throughout their communities.


Providing Quality Dental Care at an Affordable Price

A staggering number of Americans, an estimated 127 million, lack dental insurance. While the recent rollout of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) has increased the availability and affordability of medical coverage, dental benefits continue to be viewed by the public as a luxury, instead of a necessity.

According to the American Dental Association, the ACA is only estimated to cover dental care for about 26 million Americans, mostly children and Medicare recipients, leaving the rest of the uninsured population wondering how to afford basic preventive dental care.

Providing genuine alternatives to traditional insurance is an increasingly important issue within the dental industry, evidenced by the fact that Forbes.com recently published an article titled When You Don’t Have Dental Insurance. The article addresses the growing issue of lack of access to affordable dental care, and suggests patients look for a dentist who offers a membership program, naming QDP as a prime example. Through these innovative programs like QDP, millions of uninsured Americans can now find the necessary dental care they need at a cost they can actually afford.

Dentists realize that with a dental membership plan, they are able to provide quality dental care at an affordable price to a greater number of patients in their communities without having to surrender to the hassles of insurance companies. Dentists are happy and their patients can finally enjoy peace of mind, making QDP a true win-win scenario for both patients and dentists.
