How Dental Insurance Works

Every month you pay a premium for your dental plan, which gives you access to lower rates for the services you need. Although every policy differs, most plans include:

  • 100% preventive care covered
  • Minor restorative care around 70%-80% covered
  • Major restorative care around 50%

Dental coverage is designed with prevention in mind because it keeps your teeth and gums healthy to lower your overall oral health expenses. In fact, research shows $1 spent on prevention can save $50 on restorative care. As a result, your policy will include 1-2 preventive appointments per year. If a problem occurs, you can have it treated quickly because your insurance will cover a portion of the cost.

What is the Difference Between Medical and Dental Insurance?

Medical and dental insurance work a bit differently because you will have yearly limits and maximums. Besides preventive care, you will also have coverage for restorative treatments. After paying your annual deductible, you’re given a yearly allowance to use toward the services you need.

At the end of the year, your coverage expires. You won’t be reimbursed for anything you don’t use, and it won’t carry over into the new year. With less than 3% of Americans meeting their annual limits, we will help you maximize your policy to invest in a healthy smile for minimal out-of-pocket expense.

In-Network VS Out-of-Network

You have the freedom to choose any dentist who accepts your coverage. We work with both in-network and out-of-network patients to keep our services affordable.

In-Network Coverage

Your insurance will recommend you visit a dentist who is in their network because they have pre-negotiated rates to lower the amount you pay. Our office is proud to be in-network with:

Out-of-Network Coverage

You can still use your insurance, even if you are out-of-network; however, you’ll need to pay the difference between your policy’s allowable amount and the dental fees. Our office works with all leading PPO providers. We will file the necessary claims to help you make the most of your coverage.
