Participation in SDC's network helps maintain your practice's insured patient base by promoting affordable access to your excellent care. But the perks of joining SDC don't stop there! As an SDC participating provider, you can take advantage of a valuable tool to help maintain your uninsured patient base - SDC's Dental Savings Plan! This plan, available exclusively to SDC's network, helps your practice retain non-insurance, "cash paying" patients and increases case acceptance rates, services rendered, patient loyalty, and overall pricing consistency. Plus, as an added value to your participation in SDC's network, the startup fee to become an SDC Dental Savings Plan affiliated provider is waived! For more information on SDC's Dental Savings Plan, visit our Dentist Support Center.
Not only does participating in SDC's network help increase and maintain your insured and uninsured patient base, but SDC also helps you market cosmetic and other non-covered services!
