The CDI Group and Tralongo LLC create the Smile Select Dental Plan

The CDI Group is proud to announce their partnership with Tralongo, LLC, a firm that partners with dentists to help them grow and expand their practices. Tralongo sought a flexible partner poised as an industry leader in the discount dental plan market to create and administer a dental plan for all Tralongo offices.  They wanted a consistent, professionally administered plan that would take the administrative burden off the dental offices so they could continue to focus on their patients.

The Smile Select Dental Plan was created with the uninsured in mind to offer quality dental care at an affordable price. The plan was also designed to help Tralongo grow their patient base as they continue their expansion across the United States.  The Smile Select Dental Plan ( offers significant savings to potential patients.  Currently, there are 29 procedures available with a “fixed fee” which makes new patient and existing patient visits very affordable. The plan includes free exam and X-rays. Other procedures are offered to the members at a 25% discount.

“Many times, patients voice financial concerns when we discuss their treatment plans, keeping them from accepting the services they need. The savings offered by the Smile Select Dental Plan may be just what they need to decide to accept the treatment,” said Kathleen Hauman, Sr. Vice President of The CDI Group.   “Working together with Tralongo, we hope to see an increase in the number of patients choosing to maintain and improve their oral health.”
