Dental Benefit Plans or Dental Insurance

Most patients utilize dental insurance up to a yearly benefit maximum. Unlike medical insurance, dental "insurance" is actually a benefit plan. Simply put, the yearly benefit can be thought of as a "coupon" towards dental treatment. It will only cover a percentage of common procedures up to a certain amount. For most dental benefit plans, this averages about $1000 per year. For most larger treatment plans, this option will only account for a portion of the financial outlay towards necessary care. This option is often used in conjunction with other options seen below. As a courtesy, we can submit a pre-authorization on your behalf to determine coverage.
