Unlimited Dentistry in Glendale is taking the bite out of dental costs with a revolutionary approach that makes comprehensive dental care affordable without the hassle of insurance, and without the staggering, unpredictable costs associated with dental care.
Unlimited Dentistry was founded because of a belief that affordable dental care should be available to everyone.
The innovative plan comes at a time when the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that dental care costs outpace overall medical healthcare costs.
Only 36 percent of adults in the United States will visit a dentist this year, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation. One in four non-elderly Americans with untreated tooth decay suffers from pain and serious oral health conditions and one in four Medicare recipients have no natural teeth, which can lead to nutritional deficiencies.
Nearly 45 million Americans lack dental insurance. The American Dental Association cites a chief reason for avoiding dental visits: fear of unknown costs.
Even when employers pay half the premiums, coverage is sorely lacking. The typical dental plan requires a 50-percent copay for crowns and bridges, and annual limits have dropped as low as $1,000 — barely a down payment for orthodontics — while premiums and costs continue to climb.
Unlimited Dentistry is committed to your overall health. Treatment is diagnosed based on actual dental needs rather than what an insurance plan may or may not cover.
At Unlimited Dentistry, one fee covers it all.
With Unlimited Dentistry, patients can choose from several available plans:
•A 12-month standard plan for $495.00 with a benefit amount of $1,000
•A 24-month bronze plan for $3,250 with a benefit amount of $8,000
• A 24-month silver plan for $4,995 with a benefit amount of $16,500.00
• A 24-month gold plan for $9,995 with a benefit amount of $30,000.00
•A 24-month platinum plan for $14,995 with a benefit amount of $40,000.00
The one fee Unlimited Dentistry plans cover all dental and orthodontic procedures for one price.

The concept is the first of its kind in the United States.
