Dental Plans

We accept all dental plans and are in-network with Delta Dental. We are not providers for Title 19/Medicaid, nor do we participate in any dental discount programs. However, we do offer an in-office dental membership (see below).

Northern Hills Dental Membership Plan

For our patients who do not have dental insurance, please ask our business assistants about our $199.00 (adult) or $99 (children under 18 years of age) annual Northern Hills Dental Membership Plan!  

Dental insurance is difficult to deal with . . . wouldn’t you agree? This is why our office is offering our patients an alternative. Northern Hills Dental Membership Plan was designed to extend an easier, more affordable way of receiving dental care. This plan is unique to our office, and only applies to services rendered at Northern Hills Dental. What you pay: Adult 18 and up: $199 membership fee Under 18: $99 membership fee What you get: •2 simple teeth cleanings •2 annual dental check-up exams. •All necessary x-rays needed for check-up exams. •Fluoride treatment for children under 18 & high risk adults. •10% discount on dental treatments (excludes whitening products and procedures). How it works: •Membership fees are due at time of registration. •Membership is good for 1 year from date of registration and is non-refundable. •To receive 10% discount on dental treatment, payment is due on the date of service. •Must set up your two cleaning appointments at time of registration. •Notify our office, at least 2 business days in advance, for any appointment changes. The Details: •Your membership benefits expire 1 year from your registration date, so any unused benefits will be forfeited. •Membership is only for patients without dental insurance. •Plan benefits apply only to treatment provided by Northern Hills Dental. •Plan benefits do not apply to any services rendered that are covered by Workman’s Compensation. •If you are diagnosed with Periodontal Disease, your oral health needs are more complicated, thus need more attention. You are no longer a candidate for a simple cleaning, but it would be necessary to have a periodontal maintenance cleaning at the frequency recommended by the dental team. Two periodontal maintenance cleanings can count towards your 2 simple cleanings. However, it is likely that your mouth will need cared for more than 2 times per year. Those visits will need paid out-of-pocket at the time of service and are not subject to the 10% discount. •Whitening products and procedures are excluded from the 10% discount. •If paying with Care Credit, the 10% discount will not apply.

Dental Warranty

Northern Hills Dental is proud to provide our patients with peace-of-mind coverage for their dental work.  No matter if you have insurance or not, if life happens and the dental work needs replacement, you will have to pay for a replacement. If you have insurance, you will also have to pay for the replacement as there is a 60-month waiting period for insurance before they pay for another dental treatment on that tooth.

Dental Warranty provides no-fault nation-wide coverage for 5-years for our patients to pay for dental re-treatment if (and when) life happens.  Ask our knowledgeable dental and business assistants about this wonderful coverage!
