That is a big part of what inspired us to create our own dental plan for patients without access to dental insurance.

Birmingham area patients have responded very positively to McCalla Dental’s Smart Dental Plan, which allows them to obtain the dental treatment they need even if they lack dental insurance. Insurance such as that which would be traditionally offered by an employer in an employee benefit package. "We are honestly passionate about dental care," said Dr. John Poczatek. "Oral health contributes in a real way to a patient’s overall health and wellness. That is a big part of what inspired us to create our own dental plan for patients without access to dental insurance. For us, it is personal. We care about our patients, they are an extension of our family."

Smart Dental Plan Gives Patients Access to Year-Round Dental Care

The Smart Dental Plan is a discount plan that gives 20% off of treatment fees for most services, including: bridges and crowns, dental implants, fillings, tooth extractions, dentures, root canals and periodontal cleanings. The Smart Dental Plan includes two exams and routine cleanings each year for each member. The plan also provides some highly beneficial ancillary services such as the annual exam X-rays, fluoride treatments and high-tech oral cancer screenings at no additional cost. The Smart Plan can be used to reduce the cost of dental care for both cosmetic and routine services such as fillings and dentures—however, it does not include some services such as Invisalign or All-on-4® implant-supported dentures.

The plan has no maximum yearly coverage limits and no deductibles, waiting periods or missing tooth clauses that rule out the replacement of missing teeth.

Once enrolled, members do not need to carry a card, as all of their information is kept in their electronic records at the dental office. A membership costs $25 per month for the first family member, with an additional $20 per month for every family member thereafter. Patients also have the option of paying for the entire year and saving $50 for the first member and $40 for each additional member. The plan lasts one year from the date of registration.

Those who are interested in the Smart Dental Plan can contact the office during normal business hours at: (205) 477-4242. Appointments can also be requested online at
