DentalPlans.com Launches 2013 Dental Makeover Contest on Facebook
PLANTATION, FL, Jan 21, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
Today, DentalPlans.com announced the start of its "Ultimate Dental
Makeover Contest" to award $5,000 for dental care and give away 10
free Discount Dental Plans in 2013.
Beginning Monday, Jan. 21, through Monday, April 1, DentalPlans.com
will host its short essay contest (400 words or less) at
Facebook.com/DentalPlans, where fans can enter to win by sharing why
they need a dental makeover in 2013.
At the end of each week during the 10-week contest, DentalPlans.com
will award one Discount Dental Plan for the story with the most votes
by Facebook fans. At the conclusion of the "Ultimate Dental Makeover
Contest," the top 10 stories will be reviewed by a panel of
DentalPlans.com judges to determine the grand prize winner of $5,000
towards his or her dental costs in 2013.
"Our contest is a great way for us to help someone get the dental
care they might not be able to afford otherwise, and, introduce more
people to Discount Dental Plans through social media," said
DentalPlans.com Chief Marketing Office Carla Hudson. "Not everyone
knows that these plans are the perfect alternative to dental
insurance and its annual maximums."

care beyond traditional insurance, Medicare or Medicaid," said
Hudson. "So, their dental care goes on the back burner to prioritize
and budget for other health costs and household expenses."

Plans work like a Costco or Sam's Club membership. Members pay an
annual fee for an individual or family plan that offers discounts at
the dentist all year long. Plans have no annual limits, restrictions
or waiting periods, and can include discounts on orthodontics and
