Dental Insurance is the contract that has been negotiated between your employer and the dental insurance company. As a result, the benefits you are eligible for will be determined by that contract and not your dental office. Many dental insurance policies cover only basic dental care and may not include many treatment modalities (such as dental implants and bone grafting).
It is very important to understand that your treatment plan is based on your individual periodontal needs and not dictated by what your insurance plan allows.
Most dental insurance plans have a dollar amount limitation each year and will cover services up to that limit regardless of what you may need in addition to that.
Please be aware that what your dental plan covers is not tailored directly for your individual needs.
Please feel free to ask us if you ever have any questions about your dental insurance!
Our office will strive to help you maximize your insurance benefits. We will always provide you with a treatment estimate to the best of our ability. Upon your request, we will submit pre-authorizations prior to therapy.
Our office is non-assignment which means that we do not accept payment from insurance. Full payment is due on the day of service, and your insurance company will reimburse you directly. We will submit claims to the insurance company as a courtesy to you.
Due to the Freedom of Information Policy (FOIP) most dental insurance companies will not correspond with dental offices. As a result of this, it is the patients’ responsibility to know their dental coverage and its limitations. Our staff is always available to help you understand the information the insurance company provides you with.
