Most of our patients have dental insurance as a way to make their family’s care much more affordable, and at our dental office, we’re happy to help you make the most out of your investment. We accept all major PPO dental insurance plans, and our expert team will know exactly how to help you get every dollar you deserve. Dental insurance is a bit different than standard health insurance, and you can learn more about the best ways to use it by reading below.
While most health insurance plans are designed to help people afford treatment for sudden serious problems (like a heart attack or stroke), dental insurance is actually more about prevention.
With most plans, the services that receive the highest amount of coverage are those that can prevent cavities and gum disease from developing in the first place. This is because taking a prevention-first approach is not only better for someone’s oral health, but it also protects them from needing more extensive and expensive treatments over time, helping a patient (and their insurance provider) save quite a bit of money.
While every insurance plan is different, generally, your benefits probably break down like this:
This tells you a lot about how to maximize your benefits. Basically, the best thing to do is simply attend your two recommended checkups and cleanings each year. You’ll likely have little to no out-of-pocket expense, and they’ll help you catch and treat small problems before they can turn into bigger ones later.
Our dental office is in-network with many insurance providers, and this simply means that we have a contract with them to provide our services for predetermined rates, which are usually lower than our normal fees. We're a proud in-network provider with the following dental insurance companies:
Visiting a dental office like ours that is in-network with your plan is a very effective way to save on your dental care. Just by virtue of having an in-network plan, you’ll automatically pay less for your treatments with us, and then your plan will cover a portion of that already reduced rate, saving you even more money. This can easily add up to hundreds of dollars at every single visit.
