MEMBERSHIP DISCLAIMER. COMPANY IS NOT DOING THE BUSINESS OF INSURANCE, AND THE SMYLEN.COM WEBSITE / PLATFORM IS NOT INSURANCE OR A DISCOUNT PLAN. The Smylen platform also is not a Qualified Health Plan under the Affordable Care Act. The Smylen platform provides an open, transparent marketplace for dental consumers to connect with dental providers who have excess availability and are willing to provide a specific service for a specified fee. While Smylen does contract with the dental providers who participate on the Smylen platform, Smylen does not pay such providers a salary or any form of capitated or other periodic, fixed fee payment. Each contracted dental provider sets (or has the ability to set) his or her own service fees. Significantly, Smylen does NOT require or otherwise pressure a contracted provider to provide a discount to consumers participating on the Smylen platform. All discount decisions (if any) are individually made by each contracted provider, provider group, or provider network. The Smylen platform simply provides a transparent, efficient process for dental consumers to (i) identify a dental provider who is willing and able to provide a specified service for a specified fee and (ii) schedule such service for the specified fee. The consumer is then responsible for paying the provider for the service(s) provided. Smylen does not directly or indirectly pay for any services provided by its contracted providers.
WARRANTY DISCLAIMER. Company has no special relationship with or fiduciary duty to You. You acknowledge that Company has no control over, and no duty to take any action regarding: which users gain access to the Services; what Content You access via the Services; what effects the Content may have on You; how You may interpret or use the Content; or what actions You may take as a result of having been exposed to the Content. You release Company from all liability for You having acquired or not acquired Content through the Services. The Company is not a medical, dental, or cosmetic service provider or adviser; any material on the Website or otherwise provided through the Services is for informational purposes only, and is not a substitute for medical or dental advice, diagnosis or treatment provided by a qualified health care provider.

Company makes no representations or warranties regarding the accuracy of descriptions anywhere on the Services, or regarding suggestions or recommendations of services or products offered or purchased through the Services.

BIDS; FEES AND PAYMENT THRU SMYLEN MARKETPLACE (NAME YOUR FEE™ ). Through the Website and the Smylen Marketplace, You may choose to purchase certain services offered by Service Providers by placing a bid for such a service as directed on the Website and by providing an acceptable method of payment. No services are purchased by You until Your bid is matched with a Service Provider (a “Matched Service Provider”). By submitting a bid You acknowledge and agree that You are making a legally binding offer to purchase the specified service (1) from any Service Provider on the Website, (2) at any location within the area specified by You, and (3) at any time specified by You. At the time Your bid is matched with a Service Provider, You will be charged a fee for using the services (“Match Fee”) -- your method of payment will be charged the applicable flat fee of $50 and You shall be notified of such acceptance along with the name of the Service Provider and location. The amount due for the services covered under your Matched bid will also be charged to You. The services associated with a Matched bid are non-changeable and without the express consent of the Service Provider that accepted such Matched bid.
