Universal Dental Plan Employs Collective Buying Power

Dedicated as an affordable alternative to dental insurance, Universal Dental Plan uses collective buying power to save Massachusetts residents

money on dentistry

BOSTON, April 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Skepticism is often met when Universal Dental Plan (UDP),, guarantees its members 20-50 percent off on all dental procedures performed whether by general dentists, orthodontists, periodontists, endodontists, or oral surgeons. Through a discount dental plan, UDP offers Massachusetts residents these savings as an affordable alternative to dental insurance. It sounds too good to be true, but the savings are as legitimate as the secret behind its success, collective buying power.

Collective buying power is when a group of consumers come together using the old rule of thumb, there's power in numbers, to leverage the group size in exchange for discounts. UDP has stepped in to play the middle person to negotiate dental discounts on behalf of its members across Massachusetts. Quality service isn't comprised because it's a win-win scenario for dentists and specialists. Instead of having empty chairs because people can't afford procedures, dentists increase their patient volume.

Discount dental plans are becoming more commonplace as consumers seek to actively take control of their finances without delaying their oral health care. These plans are membership-based services offering access to a network of dentists and specialists who have agreed to discounted fees. While dental plans aren't competing with dental insurance, they are the optimal solution to fill the gap of consumers who don't have dental insurance. "My husband doesn't have a company paid dental insurance plan. Universal Dental Plan has been a great help," Connie Weller said.

There are perks that dental plans offer over dental insurance. "The great thing about this plan is that there is no paperwork and I have the freedom to choose any dentist from a list of participating providers," Logan Smith said. Consumers catching on to discount dental plans like UDP are revolutionizing the consumption of dental services and the best part about it, they're saving money while they're doing it.


Universal Dental Plan is the affordable alternative to dental insurance by offering members guaranteed discounts on all dental procedures without the hassle, restrictions or paperwork that insurance companies require. With a network of hundreds of dentists and specialists across Massachusetts, Universal Dental Plan is the most trusted discount dental plan. Headquartered in Boston, UDP was founded in 1993 on the principle of affordable dentistry for all. For more information about the company, please visit
