PLANTATION, Fla., Sept. 19, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Hispanic Heritage Month, which runs from September 15 to October 15, is the perfect time to honor Hispanic traditions, histories and cultural contributions. And, :DentalPlans, a leading dental and health savings marketplace, is proud to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with the local community and their members across the nation.
:DentalPlan's mission is to provide everyone with easy access to straightforward, money-saving healthcare products and information. To better serve the Hispanic community, the company recently launched a version of the :DentalPlans website in Spanish.
":DentalPlans' website makes it easy for people to access the information they need in both English and Spanish. This includes information on dental savings plans, telemedicine offerings and other additional benefits such as vision and prescription plans, which help make healthcare truly affordable," said Bill Chase, vice president of marketing for :DentalPlans.
Plans for expanding the Spanish site include a dental information center in Spanish, along with a blog. :DentalPlans has also increased the number of bilingual staff members in its customer care center.
"Studies show that many Hispanics do not see a dentist regularly – which is critical to maintaining oral and overall health. This is largely due to the cost of care, lack of information and resources in Spanish and more," said Chase. "The addition of expanded services in Spanish will allow us to better serve our Spanish speaking community and provide them with the care they need."
:DentalPlans is also developing partnerships with Hispanic organizations and businesses within the local community to help ensure easier access to affordable, quality dental care.
"Language – along with affordability - should never be a barrier to getting quality dental and healthcare," said Chase. "We are excited to partner with various organizations to ensure we educate and create awareness about the importance of dental care."
More about Dental Savings Plans
Dental savings plans are a cost-effective alternative to dental insurance. Plan members can save anywhere from 10-60% on most dental procedures, including treatments not typically covered by dental insurance such as dental implants and cosmetic services such as tooth whitening.
And, unlike traditional dental insurance there are no background checks, annual coverage limits, restrictions regarding receiving treatment for pre-existing dental problems or waiting periods before receiving care. And most plans activate within three days.
