Bento, a platform that can power any type of dental plan or benefit without the need of a traditional insurance company, is proud to announce it has received an exclusive endorsement from the Georgia Dental Association. The GDA joins the American Dental Association and other state and local associations endorsing Bento as an alternative to traditional dental plans for employers, groups, associations, dentists, and individuals.
In partnering with Bento, the GDA will help introduce Bento’s innovative platform to its 3500+ member dentists located throughout Georgia.
“We are pleased to partner with Bento to give GDA members and their patients a modern alternative to traditional dental benefits,” said GDA President Dr. Louvenia A. Rainge. “Bento’s platform aims to reduce the workload in dental benefit administration while offering the flexibility of customizable patient membership plans for dentists.” GDA Executive Director, Frank J. Capaldo, adds, “Offering innovative solutions to our members is critical in ensuring the dentists of Georgia can continue to provide high- quality dental care to patients from all socioeconomic backgrounds.”
Traditional dental insurance has not seen innovation since the 1950’s and has become a concern for patients, employers, and dentists. Bento’s end-to-end HIPAA-compliant platform alleviates the need for groups and individuals to contract with insurance companies resulting in a frictionless, transparent experience with direct payments from the source to the provider.
Along with a fast-growing network of dental providers, Bento’s Platform enables dental practices to oﬀer their own customizable in-oﬃce patient membership plans – greatly increasing the number of options for individuals without a traditional dental benefit. Bento’s expert team works with dentists to create optimal patient membership plans and provides tools and free customizable marketing materials to make implementing these plans as seamless as possible.
“Traditional dental insurance has continued to cause confusion and frustration for dentists and patients for decades. With the GDA’s help, we’re excited to educate dentists, businesses, and individuals on the benefits of using Bento’s platform to upgrade their dental benefits and improve access to care across Georgia.” says Ram Sudireddy, founder and CEO of Bento.
Bento is on a mission to provide the transparency, access, flexibility, and clarity that Americans need with their dental care. The company has received recognition across the dental industry earning endorsements from the American Dental Association, Florida Dental Association, Georgia Dental Association, Tennessee Dental Association, and Texas Dental Association among others. Based out of Boston, MA and with oﬃces in Miami, FL; Bento has established the fastest growing network of dental providers in the US with over 350,000 access points nationwide and empowers employers, groups, and dentists around the country to oﬀer better dental plans to their employees and patients.
