How Dental Insurance Works

Not all dental insurance plans work in the same way, but typically, an insurer offers patients coverage for a percentage of the costs of dental treatments in exchange for the payment of a monthly premium. This coverage is typically only available up to a treatment maximum coverage amount and annual plan maximum. In most cases, patients receive some combination of the following benefits:

What is the Difference Between Dental & Medical Insurance?

There are a number of differences between medical and dental insurance. The most significant difference in these plans is the covered services. Medical plans offer the greatest amount of coverage for emergencies and chronic illnesses. Dental benefit plans emphasize preventive care, offering almost complete coverage for the costs of services geared toward keeping smiles healthy.

In-Network VS Out of Network Dentistry

One of the many benefits of PPO dental insurance plans is that they are flexible, allowing patients to choose a dentist they feel comfortable with and still receive treatment coverage. We are happy to offer in-network dental care for a number of plans, but our knowledgeable team members will process and file dental insurance claims for patients whether or not we are in-network with their insurer.

In-Network Coverage

Since dental benefits give patients coverage at almost any office, it may seem obvious to ask why you should bother finding an in-network dentist. While you do not need to visit an in-network dentist in order to receive coverage, these practices do ensure you have the lowest out of pocket costs, fastest turnaround on requests, and a team who is familiar with your individual plan. Our in-network insurance plans include:
