Understanding How Dental Insurance Works
While traditional medical insurance is designed to cover the costs of traumatic injuries, illnesses, and other serious health problems, dental insurance takes a different angle. Most plans organize the bulk of their benefits behind preventive-based care, such as biannual dental checkups and cleanings. By making these appointments much more affordable, the goal is for patients to maintain healthier teeth and minimize their risk for more serious oral damage later down the road.
What Your Dental Insurance Plan Covers
It’s important to keep in mind that every dental insurance plan is unique. You should always confirm what services are and are not covered with your provider before undergoing treatment at Town Square Dental. Our team members can also lend a helping hand with this process, filing for predetermination of benefits before any actual care begins so that you can approach your upcoming smile improvements with total confidence. That said, most plans offer coverage along these lines:
- Dental checkups, professional cleanings, and other preventive services are usually covered at or near 100%.
- Minor restorative care (including fillings and root canal therapy) is partially covered at or near 80%.
- More extensive restorative care (including dentures, bridges, and crowns) is partially covered at or near 50%.
We Offer In-Network Savings & Welcome Out-of-Network Providers
At Town Square Dental, Dr. Nguyen is an in-network provider for many dental insurance plans, including the following:
- Delta Dental
- United Health Care
What does being in-network mean, though? Basically, our dental office has agreed to accept rates for certain services that were pre-negotiated with the insurance company. These rates are typically lower than what you would find at an out-of-network dental office since they are not abiding by the same restrictions.
