The 1Dental Story
Dental Care Had a Problem
Our founder got his start selling insurance, and he discovered a problem pretty early on: There were no good dental plan options out there. It seemed like there was always a “gotcha.” Dental insurance plans often exclude the dental care people need most.
There Had to Be A Better Way
You have to have insurance, right? There’s no other way, and everything else out there is a scam. But who can afford to pay full price at the dentist? So we thought.
A Solution That’s Disrupting the Industry
Then we found out about dental savings plans. They’re more like how you’d hope insurance would work: low cost, high savings, and no fine print.
No, they’re not perfect. We haven’t found one that covers 100% of everything, for example (but we haven’t found an insurance plan like that either). We also haven’t found one that ALL dentists accept (again, same thing with insurance).
But one thing’s for sure: they work a lot better than anything else we’ve found. And we think we’ve narrowed down the 2 best nationwide dental savings plan options out there.
Getting the Word Out
We realized that hardly anyone knew about these plans, and some who had heard of them thought they were too good to be true.
When we discovered that companies like Careington and Aetna were offering these plans, we began to partner with them to get the word out so more Americans could afford the dental care they needed.
Why We Do What We Do
Members blow us away all the time with their amazing stories. Often, they didn’t see how they could get out of chronic pain and couldn’t afford the dental care they needed until they got a dental savings plan. Here are just a few stories:
"My daughter and I have been alone all her life. One thing that went by the wayside for many years was dental care. When I learned about Careington Care 500 I joined right away! It was easy to afford this plan… I only wish I knew about it sooner!"
- Ellen C., lllinois
"They stopped my gum disease, and now I’m on a routine cleaning plan that, without Careington Care 500 Series, I could have never afforded."
- William R., Arizona
“I never thought I would ever be able to afford dental work with the high prices, but 1Dental made it happen for me, and it has changed my life."
- Noel F., Oklahoma
"For 10+ years I have been fighting with insurance companies to get coverage, When I called Careington/1Dental and they accepted me on the spot, I almost dropped the phone. I actually asked the person on the other end of the telephone what the catch was, because even the price was so low! Now, I am on to the dentist without fear of it breaking the bank."
- Lynn M., Pennsylvania
“If it wasn’t for the Careington plan I would have lost this tooth.”
- Lissa W., Florida
“My wife and I were pleasantly surprised with the selection and low cost of the plan. We were very hesitant in today’s era of scams, however, and were scared to put our trust in an unknown. When we called the 1Dental help line, we were greeted with intelligent, caring individuals who put our minds at peace.”
- Charles F., Texas
“A lot of ballet companies do not offer their dancers health insurance and definitely not dental or vision coverage… If it weren’t for companies like 1Dental, I wouldn’t be able to get my teeth cleaned and maintain healthy teeth and gums.”
- Nadia A., Arizona
“I always knew I had bad teeth that really needed attention. Dentists are just way too expensive! Finally I decided to do something about it. That’s when I found out about the Careington Care 500 Series plan. And it’s a good thing, because I had 18 cavities! I can’t imagine how much that would have cost me without a dental plan."
- Nicholas H., Louisiana
“I thought the worst was sitting through the pain of teeth pulling, but it wasn’t. The worst was when the dental office told me how much money I would need to have the surgery. Just when I had given up I was told about Careington. I gave them a call and to my surprise, they helped discount almost half off my dental bill.”
- Dave C., Pennsylvania
“I had no insurance and didn’t have time to wait 6 months to have my wisdom teeth taken out—I was in too much pain. I called 1Dental, and they were so friendly and helpful! I was able to make an appointment immediately and saved hundreds on my procedure through their plan.”
- Sarah S., Oklahoma
