​​Find Your Plan

If my dentist refers me to a specialist who is not in the network, do I still get a discount?

Can I use my membership when I travel away from home?

First, you can find participating local Ohio dentists by using the "Find a Dentist" page on this website.  After confirming the dentist's continued participation when making an appointment, members just show their membership card at the time of service.  Members are responsible for paying all fees directly to the dentist.

No, this is not an insurance plan. The discount plans offered by Ohio Dental Plans provide you with discounted prices on a wide range of dental care services and products. You will pay for services at the discounted price at the time services are received.

What should I say when I call a dentist to make sure they participate?

You may go to the dentist of your choice. However, you will only receive a discount by going to a participating local Ohio dentist.

The dentist will recognize the name of the network with which they participate, so when you call, it is important to use the name of the correct network.
