Merit Dental Introduces Smile Solutions Dental Discount Plan
Cost-effective program helps consumers without dental insurance by providing dental discounts for their families or businesses
Mondovi, Wis., April 10, 2014 — Merit Dental is now offering Smile Solutions, a dental discount plan providing patients with a low-cost option to help obtain the dental care they and their families need. Smile Solutions members receive 20 percent off most dental services at any Merit Dental location, as well as savings of 10 percent to 60 percent on vision care, and 10 percent to 85 percent on most prescriptions at participating providers.

or call 1-800-315-7561.
“More and more people are losing dental insurance coverage, which can create a financial barrier to obtaining the dental care necessary for good health,” said Dr. Jeff Moos, Chief Dental Officer, Merit Dental. “Patients don’t want to delay the care they need, but too often we see patients decline treatment due to costs. Merit Dental introduced the dental discount plan to help patients without insurance bridge the financial gap.”
Smile Solutions is not insurance, so applicants are guaranteed acceptance. There are no age limits, no health restrictions, no limits on visits, and no forms to file. Applicants sign up for the plan and pay a one-time processing fee of just $10.00 and a low registration fee — as low as $7.50 a month for individuals or $10 a month for families — and they can receive immediate discounts on most dental services as well as vision care and prescription drugs.
“Smile Solutions is easy to sign up for and savings are immediate, so it’s a convenient choice,” said Dr. Moos. “The savings from Smile Solutions are significant for anyone without insurance, which makes it ideal for students, families, retirees, self-employed professionals and business owners.”
Smile Solutions is available in most states across the U.S., although it is currently not available to KS, FL, UT, VA or WA residents. For more information about benefits, savings and plan details, please visit YourSmileSolutions.com
