Dental Plans

Let our team help you get the coverage you need.

Dental insurance is a crucial aspect of maintaining both oral and overall health. It facilitates access to preventive care, which is often covered at 100 percent, thereby making it more affordable for individuals and families. Regular preventive care, such as check-ups and cleanings, can help detect dental issues early, potentially saving you from costly treatments down the line. Moreover, families with dental insurance are almost twice as likely to get preventive care compared to those without it. Dental insurance also provides cost savings on various dental treatments, helping you avoid future dental health problems. However, it’s important to note that the value of dental insurance can vary based on individual circumstances, including the specific coverage of the plan and the dental needs of the individual or family.

Dental Coverage FAQ's

Before choosing a dental plan, it’s important to educate yourself about the different types of dental insurance and how they work. Consider reading introductory articles about dental insurance and ways to lower your annual dental insurance costs.

Quality dental insurance encourages regular dental visits and promotes good oral health. Regular checkups also allow dentists to screen patients for symptoms related to more than 120 different non-dental diseases, including diabetes and heart disease. It’s recommended to shop for a plan that covers preventive, minor, and major dental care with reasonable out-of-pocket costs.

A Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) is a type of dental insurance plan in which enrollees select their dentist from a network. Enrollees may use an out-of-network dentist but risk higher out-of-pocket costs. PPO dental plans may help contain patient costs but also restrict access to some services.

A Dental Health Maintenance Organization (DHMO) is a form of dental coverage where dental services are delivered through a network of dentists. The dentists within the network receive a fixed monthly fee per patient. HMO dental insurance is often the least expensive dental plan option and it lacks a “maximum benefit.”

Discount dental plans are fee-based membership programs allowing enrollees to obtain dental services at discounted rates from a group of dentists who belong to the discount plan’s network. These plans are not insurance products. The patient pays directly for care instead of the dental plan, but the dental care is received at a discounted rate.

A maximum benefit is the cap on insurance company payments toward covered dental services during a year. Expenses exceeding the maximum benefit amount are paid completely by the patient.

Before choosing a plan, consider your dental health needs, budget, and the level of flexibility you want in choosing a dentist. It’s also important to read the plan details carefully to understand what services are covered, what the out-of-pocket costs will be, and whether there are any waiting periods for certain procedures.
