Why both plans may be perfect for you:

You thought your general dentist was going to be able to perform your tooth extraction or root canal, but they had to refer you to an oral surgeon or endodontist

You want to get lower prices on general dental care with the Careington Care 500 plan, but your child’s orthodontist is in the Aetna Dental Access Network.

You move around and need plenty of dentists to choose from no matter where you are in the country

While both networks include general dentists and specialists, Careington Care 500 will usually save more at general dentists (20-60% per visit), and Dental Access will usually save more at specialists (15-50% per visit).

The Careington Care 500 plan has over 150,000 dental access points nationwide, and the Aetna Dental Access network includes over 226,000 dental locations. You'll have more dentists to choose from in both big cities and rural areas.

Can I use both plans together and combine the discounts?

No. In the event that a dentist accepts both, they will help you choose the one that will save the most on your dental work.

What if my procedure isn’t listed?

We provide a sample of some of the most common procedures, but any official dental procedure is discounted with either plan- including implants, veneers, bone grafts, ceramic crowns, and adult braces. If your dentist takes both, just ask which plan will save the most.

How can I see full Care 500 savings?

The Care 500 plan also has an extended procedure list for your specific area that you can download, print, and take with you to your visit. Anything you still don't see on that list is an automatic 20% off.

How can I see full Dental Access savings?

Dental Access plan savings vary by provider and location, so while we can provide estimates, please ask your participating dentist for exact pricing.

When can I start using the Preferred plan?
