We are coming up on our second anniversary of offering our “in office Quality Dental Plan (QDP)” to our patients who do not have dental insurance. In our office, about 40% of our patients do have dental insurance which leaves 60% without. What we offer is even better than dental insurance, with QDP you can join any time of year, it has great benefits, and our patients love it!
Is QDP better than Dental Insurance?
It is always so nice to have new patients or even emergency patients come in and to tell them that if you join our dental plan today, all of today’s charges are part of that plan and then share all the other benefits with them.
What I like best about our Quality Dental Plan is that it is simple and very easy to explain to our patients.
I would be more than happy to answer any questions that you might have regarding this wonderful dental plan! Here is a quick comparison between QDP and insurance:

Dental Insurance features:
- Limitations, deductibles, and annual maximums
- Waiting periods for major dental procedures
- A time-consuming written claims process
- Many limitations/exclusions on pre-existing conditions
- Certain dental procedures, such as cosmetic dentistry, are rarely covered if covered at all.

- Typically inaccessible to individuals and families unless provided by their employer
Comparing Quality Dental Plan with Dental Insurance may be like comparing apples to oranges. They may not be the same, but you may find that QDP is the answer to your dental insurance needs. – Dr Medina
