Are you just now entering the complicated world of dental insurance? If so, the process can sometimes be overwhelming and difficult to understand. At the Dental Center we’re happy to help you through the complicated process of your insurance plan. Dental insurance can be summed up in these 3 easy points:
1. How do you get dental insurance? Dental insurance is provided either by your place of full-time employment, or bought independently by you. There are three main types of dental insurance: indemnity (which allows you to choose any dentist you prefer who accepts your specific coverage), PPO or Preferred Provide Network, or DHMO “Dental Health Managed Organizations” wherein you will be assigned a specific in-network dentist and insurance package.
2. What does it do? Dental insurance provides you access to basic and major dental care and covers a wide variety of services, such as fillings, root canals, fillings, cleanings, and extraction. When purchasing dental insurance on your own, you are likely not going to be covered for cosmetic dental surgery such as tooth whitening.
3. Try and find a preferred provider accepted by your dental provider. Each dental office is going to have a network of preferred providers, or insurance companies, that they like to work with. Our dental practice has over 160 dental carriers to ensure you can work with your most comfortable choice.
Getting approved for dental insurance is relatively easy. Much like other insurance plans, some dental services (such as a root canal) may be subject to deductible and co-pays, so be sure to go through your insurance agreement with a fine tooth comb before you decide which company you’d like to work with.
