For many Americans, the price of traditional dental insurance is tough to swallow. According to the National Association of Dental Plans, 97% of dental insurance benefits are offered through employers. For the self-employed and unemployed, that leaves few options. Now, a growing number of consumers are eating up information on discount dental plans. They're marketed directly to you on sites like DentalPlans.com, DentalSave.com and Brighter.com, and operate similar to membership warehouse clubs. You pay a yearly fee, typically $75-$200, and access discounts at the dentist all year long. Those discounts can range anywhere from 10%-60%. Many plans even offer discounts on cosmetic procedures and braces.
