As dental benefit costs continue to increase, Kaiser Permanente saw the need for innovative and affordable solutions for all individuals.
The Healthy Smile Plan, for individuals and families is a “reduced fee” dental plan. The plan is designed for health-conscious consumers looking to maintain their oral health and minimize their dental care expenses. Unlike insurance, there are no benefit maximums and virtually no paperwork.
Card holders select a provider from the DenteMax or Kaiser Permanente Dental Providers network and set up an appointment. Providers who participate have agreed to accept a reduced fee as payment in full for each service performed.
