DentalPlans announces a partnership with patient financing platform, Prosper Healthcare Lending (PHL), to give members access to a healthy financing option for dental procedures.  DentalPlans connects students, seniors, parents, families and businesses online to compare the best dental savings plans in their area and find one that fits their unique dental care needs. Prosper Healthcare Lending’s platform will be integrated into to make dental more affordable for patients.

Dental savings plans are an affordable alternative to dental insurance. More than 100,000 participating dentists nationwide have agreed to accept a reduced, pre-negotiated fee from dental savings plan members. Depending on the plan, members can receive 10- 60 percent off of a wide variety of dental services, including orthodontia and cosmetic procedures.

Bill Chase, Vice President, Marketing at DentalPlans said the following: “We are excited to be partnering with Prosper Healthcare Lending as we share the same goal of helping Americans receive the dental care that they need to enable a healthier lifestyle.  With PHL, we will be able to give members access to a healthy financing option for any additional cost associated with their dental procedures.”

Financing dental care makes treatment possible for patients who would normally not be able to afford the procedure. PHL provides access to healthy loan options that contain no retroactive interest and no pre-payment penalties.  Patients can even check their rate without affecting their credit score. The process is fast and easy. The individual can apply for a loan directly through the dental plans site on device and can receive a pre approval decision within seconds. They then can complete the process entirely online and receive the funds for their treatment in as few as 3 business days.

Richard Russell, Head of Business Development at Prosper Healthcare Lending said this about the partnership: “We are thrilled about our partnership with DentalPlans. PHL is the best and most patient friendly option for accessing available loan options. Through this partnership we are able to provide a financing program for DentalPlans members so that they can receive the services they need at the time they need them.”
