Austin, TX (PRWEB) April 13, 2015
If you don’t have dental insurance but want some of the perks, a new discount plan launched today in Austin may be your ticket to a brighter smile.
Dentegra Smile Club, a new dental discount and rewards program offered by Dentegra Insurance Company, connects members to discounts on dental products and services, pricing transparency and dentist reviews. For just $2 a month, members have access to Dentegra’s 2,200 dentists in Texas, who agree to charge Smile Club members their discounted fees. Also, club members receive a discount on the purchase of the Kolibree Connected Electric Toothbrush – the first of its kind that offers 3D sensors and real-time interactive feedback to users in an innovative way – and can earn a cleaning and exam for good brushing behavior.
“Dentegra Smile Club offers a great opportunity to those who don’t have dental insurance to still reap discounts on dental services,” said Belinda Martinez, Dentegra’s senior VP of sales and marketing. “And for those who opt to purchase the Kolibree Connected Electric Toothbrush, there are additional rewards that help motivate people to keep their teeth clean while defraying the cost of dental care.”
The Dentegra dentist network – nearly 24,000 strong across the nation and growing – will help Smile Club members obtain discounts on dental care that can average as much as 50% off the normal cost of cleanings and a significant number of the most common dental care services.* Dentegra Smile Club is a dental discount plan — it is not insurance, and is easy to use. Club members simply visit a contracted Dentegra dentist and pay discounted fees for covered services; there are no claim forms, no annual deductibles and no annual maximums.
Dentegra Smile Club membership is available to residents of Travis, Williamson, Bastrop, Caldwell and Hays counties.
The Kolibree Connected Electric Toothbrush, offered in addition to the monthly club membership fee, includes a free mobile app that keeps people of all ages engaged and motivated to brush better and for longer. Basically, it registers both brushstrokes and location in toothbrushing. A fun way to connect to their phones and mobile devices while improving their brushing techniques, the Kolibree toothbrush will also allow parents to see how well their children are brushing on a daily basis as well as store the entire family’s brushing behavior data on one smart phone. That data can be kept private or users can share that data with their dentist if they choose.
Rewards will be based upon information automatically collected by the Kolibree toothbrush. More details about the pilot discount plan and how it works are available at http://www.dentegrasmileclub.com.
