How Dental Insurance Works

Every dental insurance plan is a unique agreement between an insurer and a patient. We’ll need to review your policy before providing an estimate of your out of pocket treatment costs. Most dental insurance plans provide some combination of the following coverage:

  • 100% preventive care covered
  • Minor restorative care around 70%-80% covered
  • Major restorative care around 50%

What is the Difference Between Dental & Medical Insurance?

Medical benefit plans are geared toward coverage for chronic illnesses and emergencies. Dental benefits focus on preventive dentistry. That means you’ll receive the highest percentage of coverage for dental checkups, teeth cleanings, and dentistry services to keep you smile healthy. Rather than treatments to address advanced issues after they’ve already occurred.

In-Network VS Out of Network Dentistry
