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.
With this partnership, the GDA will help introduce Bento's innovative and easy-to-use technology platform to its 3500+ member dentists located throughout Georgia, and join a rapidly growing number of dental providers nationwide offering solutions powered by Bento.

"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 1950s and has become a source of frustration for patients, employers, and dentists. Bento's end-to-end solution and HIPAA-compliant platform alleviates the need for groups and individuals to contract with insurance companies resulting in a seamless and transparent experience with direct payments from the source to the provider.
Bento's platform enables dental practices to offer customizable in-office patient membership plans – greatly increasing the number of options for individuals without a dental benefit. Bento's expert team works with dentists to create optimal patient membership plans, provides tools and free customizable marketing materials for seamless implementation.

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 oral care across Georgia," says Ram Sudireddy, founder and CEO of Bento.
