Typical health insurance is focused on paying for treatments after damage has already been done. Dental insurance is different; the services that focus most on prevention (such as checkups and cleanings) are the ones that get the most coverage. The idea is to provide incentive for patients to have minor dental problems taken care of early on so that there’s less need for more expensive treatments later. Of course, restorative treatments are still covered, but percentage-wise it’s less than what’s provided for preventive care.
You can usually expect your dental insurance plan structure to look something like this:
Every dental insurance plan is different, so your provider’s coverage may look somewhat different than this. You can ask one of our staff members to go over your plan with you to confirm your benefits.
Being in-network with a dental insurance provider means that we’ve agreed to provide our services at a set discount. The end result is that you end up saving even more money on your care. We still take out-of-network insurance plans and will always file the paperwork for you, but you’re looking to maximize your benefits, then you’ll definitely want to check to see if your plan is currently in-network before you move forward with your treatment plan.
