How Does The Card Work?

    Consumers can buy the Dental Emergency Card for a low annual membership fee of $20 (or $37 for the family dental emergency card) and have access to a nationwide network of qualified dentists at their disposal for all of their ROUTINE dental treatments or emergency needs. Once purchased, the dental emergency card can also be used to receive immediate discounts from 15% to 60% off generic drugs and an average savings from 15% to 25% off brand name MEDICAL & DENTAL prescriptions at participating pharmacies. The pharmacist will enter your member information from the card and you will receive significant savings at the time of purchase.

    After purchase, the card is good for one year and cardholders have 30 days after activation to complete treatment initiated by their dentist including follow up treatments. Please allow up to 24 hours for the activation process to be completed in our system.

    If you do not use the card for an emergency or ROUTINE dental treatment during that year, you can still enjoy member benefits such as discounted MEDICAL & DENTAL prescriptions at participating pharmacies.

    Once the dental emergency card has been used for one emergency or one ROUTINE dental treatment, the card will no longer be valid. At that point, you will have the option of once again purchasing a new card for the annual membership fee of $20 ($37 for a family dental emergency card) or upgrade to an annual family membership which will offer you and your family members unlimited and deeply discounted emergency and ROUTINE treatments for the entire year.

    What Treatments Can I Use The Card For?

    The Dental Emergency Card was designed to help you with dental emergency treatments. Meaning, any treatment that is required to relieve you from pain. For example, if you have a tooth ache and need your tooth extracted, it’s covered. If you need a root canal, it’s covered. You can also use the card for one-time examination, x-rays, cleaning and consultation with the dentist.

    How Does The Dental Emergency Card Differ From Dental Insurance?

    Dental Insurance:

    • Maintains monthly premiums in exchange for established benefits
    • Rarely offered to individuals
    • Varying annual maximums
    • Services are out-of-pocket once maximum is met
    • Deductibles must be met before any benefits are paid
    • After deductible, co-payment must be met
    • Orthodontic treatment is rarely covered
    • Waiting period may be between 6 to 24 months for major services (i.e. crown, bridge, dentures)

    Our Dental Emergency Card:

    • One low fee for a one-time dental emergency or routine dental treatment
    • Option to renew to an annual membership plan to receive unlimited dental
      services at discounted rates for one year
