Dental Discount Program
Dental Select of Utah provides over 100 families with the "silver dental program." This dental discount plan enables patients to receive treatment from over 125 general dentists, endodontists, oral surgeons, and periodontists throughout the state of Utah, and to receive this treatment without insurance premiums, annual benefit limits or pre-existing condition clauses. With Medicare and Medicaid offering little by way of dental benefits, dental care is often viewed as unaffordable by many patients.
Through this dental plan, more dialysis patients are able to receive dental care. Dental health and the control of oral infections are a requirement for consideration of organ transplantation.
Jocelyn Johnson, a dialysis patient states, "Because of my medical bills, I haven't been to a dentist for four years. Dental Select will help for sure."
