At The Dental Suite, we have a simple goal: we want to give our patients everything when it comes to their dental care. Premier service, unmatched clinical skill, and of course, affordability. That last one is particularly important because no one should have to break the bank to receive the best that dentistry has to offer. That’s why we happily accept all dental insurance, and with our short guide below, we’ll show you how to get the most out of your plan at every visit.
Understanding How Dental Insurance Works
Dental insurance is somewhat similar to medical insurance in that in exchange for a monthly premium, you gain access to discounts on a variety of healthcare services. However, while medical insurance is designed more to help people with sudden, urgent problems (like a heart attack or car accident), dental insurance is more focused on prevention. That way, patients are able to avoid bigger dental problems as well as the more expensive procedures needed to fix them.
While every dental insurance plan is different, most policies have benefits that break down something like this:
Preventive services are covered 80-100% (checkups, cleanings, X-rays, fluoride treatments).
Restorative services are covered 45-75% (fillings, crowns, bridges, dentures, extractions)
Cosmetic services are not covered because they are deemed elective (teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, Lumineers).
Given this information, the best way to use your plan is to simply attend your two recommended checkups and cleanings each year. These appointments will likely be mostly or completely covered by your insurance, and they’ll go a long way in stopping small dental problems from turning into larger ones down the road.
