ADA Endorses Bento, a Modern Alternative to Dental Benefits

Put the Dentist-Patient Relationship Back in Your Hands

You didn’t become a dentist to spend your time navigating the insurance claims process — you did it to take care of people. That’s why the ADA endorses Bento, to get you back to doing more of what you love. Bento connects your practice directly to your patients, simplifying the claims process step and decreasing administrative costs — meaning you receive your payments quickly.

You have access to Bento’s marketing templates to help you inform and recruit your patients to use your plans. Bento offers two types of dental products: an in-office plan and a self-funded employer-sponsored group or individual plan.

New Benefit

Bento announces a new program benefit and is waiving subscription fees for the first 12 months when you switch your in-office plan patients to Bento.

Create Your In-Office Plan

With Bento, you can customize your in-office plan however you’d like, and create as many discount plans as your office wants to cover. As a membership benefit, ADA members have no set-up costs on the in-office plan and reduced monthly fees on purchased plans. Be sure to check for any state laws you need to comply with in order to set up these plans.
