Is this an insurance plan?

Can I use the Healthy Smiles Discount Plan when I max out on my insurance benefits or if a procedure is not covered through my insurance?

Once you exceed your maximum insurance benefits for the year, you can switch from your dental insurance to the Healthy Smiles Discount Plan.
