What is Smylen Dental Discount?

For a limited time, Smylen is working with the Connecticut Independent Drivers Guild to provide high-quality, affordable dental care to its members. Services are discounted up to 70% from market rates, and pricing is totally transparent so you know what you’ll owe ahead of time.

 

There’s no limit on the types of services you can get through Smylen, including cosmetic, orthodontic, and dental implant procedures.

 

Note: While Smylen Dental Discount is a great way for users to find affordable, quality dental care, it is not dental insurance. Users are solely responsible for paying for their dental treatment.

Deactivation Protection

Deactivation Protection
How to Use This Benefit

Sometimes ride share services tell drivers that they cannot drive based on incorrect claims made by passengers. And sometimes drivers are rude to passengers and should get help, not lose their jobs. If you were deactivated from and think you deserve to be put back on tell us. We promise we will fight to get you back to work.

 

We will ask you to tell us when the ride share service cut you off and why they said that they did it. Then we will go to work fighting to get you back on the platform. We cannot promise success, but we can promise we will fight. Often we win. And sometimes we work with you and the company to reach a compromise, you go back with limited access at first, or you make a deal with the company that you have to take a customer service class. Our goal is to get you back working.

 

We can primarily help drivers in New Jersey and New York State but want to hear from everyone.

 

If you have been deactivated or if a ride share service has restricted when and where you can drive as a result of an allegation that you did something wrong, click here (http://www.iamdeactivated.com/). On that website we will ask you to provide information about your situation so that we can begin to get you back to work.

 

And, if you have already submitted a case, click here (http://www.iamdeactivated.com/) to check on the status. We will work with the ride share company and you to get you back to work either by getting them to drop their case, agreeing to a “probation” or agree that you can return to work if you agree to take a class with IDG.
