Who We Are & What We Do
A flexible alternative to insurance
The CDI Group, Inc. is a licensed discount dental company. Why is this important? Because each state has stringent guidelines regarding patient’s rights which licensed dental plans must adhere to. We have gone through the most rigorous licensing processes in many states across the country – from Alaska all the way to Massachusetts. At The CDI Group, we have distinguished ourselves as a leader in the discount health care market, committed to providing access to quality dental care. Remaining a privately held company, we entered the dental business over 50 years ago, led by Dr. E. Edgar Schroeder, ABO, DDS, MS.
The CDI Group specializes exclusively in designing, developing and administering proprietary discount dental plans. It partners with dental practice management companies, dental service organizations and dental practices to offer innovative and individualized alternatives to dental insurance for insured and uninsured people across the nation.
Quality dental care is critical to overall health. Although twice-annual dental checkups are recommended, data from the Centers for Disease Control shows that nearly 20 percent of children and 40 percent of adults have not been to a dentist in the last year. In addition, dental procedures are often the largest out-of-pocket medical expense.
We believe – the insured, uninsured and under-insured – should know their dental care options. The CDI Group offers dental patients the opportunity to receive better oral healthcare. We offer dental practices the opportunity to offer more services to a broader base of patients. Together with our partner, First Choice Dental we can help more people have access to the dental care they need to ensure their total health.
