Insurance & Financing

What you need to know about Dental Insurance

No insurance pays 100% of all procedures. Dental insurance is meant to be an aid in receiving dental care. Many patients think that their insurance pays 90% to 100% of all dental fees. This is not true! Most plans only pay between 50% to 80% of the average total fee; some pay more, some pay less. The percentage paid is usually determined by how much you or your employer has paid for coverage or the type of contract your employer has set up with the insurance company. There are literally thousands of contracts available for employers to choose from.

  • Your dental insurance is based upon a contract made between your employer and an insurance company.
  • By participating with insurance, dental office must use the fee schedule provided by the insurance company.
  • Dental insurance benefits differ greatly from general health insurance benefits. Dental insurance is never a pay-all; it is only an aid.
  • Insurance companies do NOT cover many routine dental services.
  • The amount a plan pays is determined by how much the employer paid for the plan. You get back only what your employer put in, less the profits of the insurance company.
  • If you owe anything for treatment this will be explained to you before any work is performed.
  • We handle all the paperwork!
