One of the most frequent questions patients ask us is whether or not we accept their dental insurance. While we may not participate in every dental insurance plan, we are always happy to take assignment of benefit, and prepare and file your insurance paperwork for you. This helps ensure that you get the most out of your dental benefits.
One thing to keep in mind is the fact that dental insurance is rather different than medical insurance. We have found that coverage from plan to plan varies dramatically, and that quite often, your dental insurance will not pay for your best care. We always encourage our patients to choose treatments that will repair and restore their teeth in the most healthful, comfortable and long-lasting way possible. These treatments are not always what your insurance company recommends. Some insurance companies are businesses and sometime cover only the least expensive options.
Our job is to provide you with the very best care for both your smile and your overall health. If you have dental benefits, talk to us about your plan and we can explore your options together to maximize your dental benefits.
