Dental insurance is a helpful tool that can assist in reducing the cost of certain dental procedures. Choosing a dentist in your Aetna network allows you to receive the best coverage available, while also maximizing your benefits.
You will find that you receive the most coverage for your six-month cleaning and checkup, or preventive appointments because dental insurance focuses on prevention, unlike medical insurance that you utilize when you’re sick or injured.
In fact, when you choose to work with Dr. Mears your preventive visits are covered at 100%, which means there is no out-of-pocket cost to you.

Your dentist can detect tooth decay early on in during your six-month examination.
