And the smile makeover winner is…

Imagine this.


After investing all the time and money needed for adult braces and finally having the smile of your dreams, the unimaginable happens: You are the victim of a cerebral aneurysm that not only requires intense, risky, emergency brain surgery, but also misaligns your jaw, wreaking havoc on your mouth and newly straightened teeth.

That is exactly what happened to 55-year old Virginia Brady. And though after recovery, Brady’s dentist recommended Lumineers veneers to heal her smile, Brady had a problem..and a big one. Lumineers were way out of her reach budget-wise.


Thankfully, Brady has finally had some good luck. This week, the South Carolina native was selected by visitors of :DentalPlans’ website, in conjunction with a panel of corporate judges, as the winner of the dental savings plan company’s yearly “Healthy Smile, Healthy You” Makeover Contest. The grand prize? $5,000 toward Virginia’s dental care AND the dental savings plan of her choice. Brady was chosen from over 580 applicants who submitted photos and descriptions, citing how they felt about their current and potential smiles. Nine runners up and five randomly selected voters also scored a free dental plan from the company.

So now, Brady plans to get her smile back as soon as possible…and understands its importance. “Having a perfect smile with perfect teeth makes you want to smile at everyone you see,” she says. “I am self-employed and work in the retail industry, so I greet customers every day. I would love to be able to show them the smile I used to have. Smiling at someone can make their day and that is what I would like to do again.”


Jenn Stoll, Chief Commercial Officer for :DentalPlans adds, “Smiling helps boost your mood, your immune system…it’s contagious and relieves stress.” Furthermore, she adds, “A genuine smile may do more than just improve your appearance. New research has also found a strong connection between smiling and your general health and well-being. We are so happy to help Virginia achieve the smile of her dreams.”


Like Virginia Brady and the twelve other folks who won a free dental plan, you can reap the benefits a :DentalPlans dental savings plan, too. One truly low annual payment gives an individual or family:


• Access to the nation’s top providers (like Aetna, Cigna, and Careington), dentists, and dental specialists.

• Unlimited discounts (10-60% off) on as many dental procedures as needed, ranging from cleanings and x-rays, to emergencies, to more advanced procedures like root canals, fillings, and bondings.

• Plans that even include discounts on orthodontia and cosmetic dentistry if desired.


And unlike expensive, complicated dental insurance plans, :DentalPlans have no deductibles, limits, caps, or pre-existing condition exclusions to worry about. There is also an open enrollment period and no waiting, hassles, or cumbersome paperwork to deal with.
