2. Discount Dental Insurance Plan:
In this type of plan, you get a membership of a well-designed network of dentists for a minimal annual fee and get access to any routine check-ups or critical emergency treatments at significantly reduced rates throughout the year. This way you save 10%-60% on your dental checkup visits.

A). PPO: The term PPO stands for Preferred Provider Organization. This type of dental insurance restricts you to visit only those dentists for your oral treatments which are associated with the insurance company. Whenever you visit those dentists, you will get some discount on the service you access. Additionally, the insurance company will give some percentage of your bill to the dental service provider as well.
B). HMO: The term HMO stands for Health Maintenance Organization. In this type of insurance, the dental service provider (who is associated with the insurance company) gets a set monthly payment from the insurance company.
