Individual Dental Insurance

Individual dental insurance is pretty easy to find and unlike health insurance the self-employed usually don't have as tough a time getting it.  The biggest thing you need to decide is do you want individual dental insurance or do you want to go with a dental plan.  Basically the difference between individual dental insurance and dental plans comes down to price and coverage. 

For an individual, dental insurance usually costs more (around $35/month or $420/year) and the amount it pays caps at around $1000 for the year.  You have to pay a deductible and you are responsible for a co-pay of between 10-60% of each visit depending on whether you go to a dentist in the company's network or outside it.  So, if your dentist charged $300 and you have a 20% co-pay you would pay $60 for this visit.

Dental plans are cheaper (usually around $100/year) and give you discounts on all the services from the dentist.  You have to use a dentist in their network.  If you go with a good provider you can usually save a lot of money - usually around half the normal fee.  Plus, unlike dental insurance, dental plans don't require background or history.  Regardless of your previous dental woes you can get covered.
