How Does Dental Insurance Work?

If you are covered by dental insurance, you or your employer pay for your coverage every month in the form of a premium. This usually costs around $50 for an individual and $150 for a family. In exchange for this amount, you and anyone else covered under your plan can receive a list of general, preventive, and restorative dentistry services either completely covered or at a significant discount once you have reached your deductible.

The specific details of your plan may vary based on certain decisions made at the time of enrollment. The copay, annual maximum, and other fees can be different from one patient to the next -- but in general, coverage looks like this:

Dental Insurance: Different from Medical Insurance

Dental insurance works with a more significant emphasis on preventive care than your medical coverage does. When we think of insurance, we think about catastrophic problems. Dental Insurance should be thought of a bit differently - like a gift card with restrictions. You receive an annual benefit, have a deductible, and a copayment. The annual benefit is the amount that they will contribute to your care annually. Although it differs from company to company, the average is $1500.

In-Network vs. Out-of-Network

Dental insurance is also different from medical in that you are not necessarily penalized for choosing an out-of-network provider. In most circumstances, you receive the same annual benefit and have the same deductible. All you have to do is provide us with your insurance information and you do not have to lift a finger. Our office will process and file your claim to ensure you receive the maximum reimbursement after you have paid out of pocket.
