HOW ARE CPS DENTISTS CHOSEN?

CPS dentists are selected through referrals from: dental consultants, colleagues of existing panel members and member recommendations. They are screened based on their expertise, endorsement of our program and a background verification. They are all well respected community members. Specialists are all Board Qualified or Board Certified. Participating dentists are located in the neighborhoods where program members either work or reside. Credentials are reviewed prior to acceptance and the panel is monitored on an ongoing basis.

Everyone who doesn't have access to dental insurance now has an alternative. You can slash 25% - 50% off the cost of usual and customary dental services.

IF I HAVE A DENTAL INSURANCE PROGRAM, SHOULD I JOIN THE DENTSAVESM PROGRAM?

Absolutely. Most insurance plans usually reimburse 40% - 80% of the dentist's fees. You, the patient, pay the difference. Since the CPS DentSaveSM Dental Discount Program fee schedule is lower than the dentist's charges to the general public you will have a much smaller difference to pay out of your pocket. In addition, the CPS DentSaveSM Dental Discount Program may provide low cost fees for treatments and procedures not covered by your dental insurance. (e.g. cosmetic dentistry.)

After reviewing this list, you select a dentist whose practice is convenient to your home or workplace. Call the dentist you select and set up an appointment. Please make sure to identify yourself as a DentSaveSM member and confirm the dentists? current status in the program. And that's all there is to it. If you want to change your dentist, you can do so at any time and for any reason. You, and you alone, select your dentist and decide whether you will continue treatment with the dentist you selected.
