New plan discounts dental services for Sedgwick County residents

Uninsured and underinsured Sedgwick County residents now have the option to use a program designed to help them improve their oral health.

People using the Dental Discount Card program can save money on their dental service expenses, including cleanings, X-rays, braces, root canals and more.

The card works at one of 25 participating dentists, and the plan starts at $6.95 per month and $59 per year for individuals. The program can save residents 20 to 50 percent on their dental care services, according to Sedgwick County.

In addition to cutting costs, the card is easy to use, said Deborah Donaldson, director of Sedgwick County's Division of Human Services, in a news release. She said cardholders simply make an appointment and present their card. All family members are eligible for the discount.

The program is sponsored by the National Association of Counties in partnership with Careington International Corp., a Texas company that markets dental savings plans.
