Understanding How Dental
Insurance Works

The main idea that everyone with dental insurance needs to understand boils down to one word: prevention. While medical insurance is designed to help patients afford treatment for problems that have already occurred, dental insurance is more focused on prevention. This is why services like checkups and cleanings tend to receive the most coverage. Dental insurance can also be used to offset the cost of restorative care, but usually at a lower rate compared to preventive treatments.

What Your Dental Insurance
Plan Covers

The majority of modern dental insurance plans follow the “100-80-50” model, which looks something like this:

  • 100% of Preventive services are covered (checkups, cleanings, X-rays)
  • 80% of Basic Restorative services are covered (bonding, fillings)
  • 50% of Advanced Restorative services are covered (crowns, bridges, dentures)

Every plan categorizes dental treatments differently, so be sure to give our team a call ahead of your appointment so we can verify your level of coverage.

Our In-Network PPO Dental
Insurance Providers

Being “in-network” with an insurance plan simply means we have agreed with the provider to offer our services for reduced fees, which they then partially pay for. This means when you choose an in-network dental office like us, you actually save money in two distinct ways! We’re proud to be in-network with many plans, but we’re always happy to work with out-of-network policies as well.

We accept the following dental insurance plans:

  • Aetna
  • Ameritas
  • Blue Cross Blue Shield
  • Assurant Employee Benefits
  • Careington
  • Cigna
