PLANTATION, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--#covid19--Dental offices are able to provide emergency care during the Covid-19 pandemic if they meet specific guidelines, however finding an open office can be stressful and time consuming. In response, DentalPlans.com, America’s #1 online marketplace for dental and health savings plans has launched a new feature in its Dentist Directory to indicate which offices are open and accepting new patients for emergency care.
Americans can search the directory of more than 100,000 dentists nationwide, by entering their zip code and then checking the box for “Emergency Care”. Dentists who are offering emergency care will have a special badge under their name, along with contact information, location, and their specialty.
“The last thing you need in the midst of an emergency is to call around to dental offices trying to find who is open, and if they’ll accept a new patient,” said Jenn Stoll, Chief Commercial Officer of DentalPlans.com. “We saw a need and found a way to help – we surveyed our network of more than 100,000 dentists across the country to determine who is open for emergencies. And from there, the new directory feature and a solution for Americans was created.”
While all of the dentists in the directory accept one or more dental savings plans from DentalPlans.com, you do not need to be a plan member to access the directory. It is a resource for anyone who needs it. And for those who do not have dental insurance, the directory also lists which savings plans are accepted by each dentist, so you have access to savings too.
And since emergencies don’t wait, DentalPlans.com makes sure you don’t either. Many plans can be activated and used in just 1 business day to help plan members save 10-60% on most procedures, including emergency care, as well as preventive care.
Check out the Dentist Directory today and be prepared in the event of an emergency.
