Dental Insurance Can Help Keep You Smiling

As we pointed out in a video post last month, most dental insurance policies provide for two preventive teeth cleanings and oral exams per calendar year and they will also cover a portion of your restorative dentistry needs. However, you’ll pay monthly premiums right out of your paycheck and these insurance companies will typically only allocate between $1,000 and $1,500 a year for a patient’s needs.

Don’t worry, we can help you verify coverage and make sense of what you are entitled to with your plan before you come in. We always take the time to help our patients file their insurance claims.

The bad news is that even with insurance, you’ll still end up needing to pay for much of your care, especially if you require complicated dental work.
The other thing to keep in  mind is that most dental insurance companies operate on a calendar year, so if you have dental insurance “dollars” leftover or you don’t come in for both of your cleanings and exams, you basically forfeit those rewards.

If you’re banking on dental insurance helping you cover these annual dental costs, then you should, at the very least, go ahead and schedule your preventive visits before they get away from you.

Finding Financing

We’ll be the first ones to tell you that some dental procedures like getting dental implants or a full-mouth reconstruction can be expensive. Totally worth it. But costly nonetheless.

So that patients won’t get buried in dental bills, we’re carrying plans like CareCredit and Lending Club, two programs that let you break up your dental bill into affordable monthly payments. Truth be told, you can often receive zero-interest financing, which goes a long way.

Let’s Make A Deal

If you’ve ever spent much time on our website you’d know that our office is always running specials and promotions to make certain treatments a little more accessible to all.

These virtual “coupons” extend to dental cleanings and exams and a whole lot more. For example, new patients can receive a dental exam and X-ray for just $39. This initial exam is valued at several hundred dollars. From there, you can add a dental cleaning for a total of just $99. Once you are a regular patient, you can also receive special discounts on your braces, Invisalign clear aligners, dental implants, etc.
