MetLife – Dallas, TX

Learn More About the Benefits of Metlife

Brushing and flossing are your first lines of defense against cavities and gum disease, but they aren’t a substitution for regular dental care. The American Dental Association recommends a cleaning and checkup every 6 months. However, many people skip routine appointments and delay dental work because of concerns about the cost. If you have dental insurance, you don’t need to worry about a large bill. Your MetLife dentist in Dallas, Dr. Liu will provide the comprehensive dental care you need for minimal out-of-pocket expenses.

Metlife Coverage Availability & Fees

Dental insurance focuses on preventive services to stop common oral health problems to reduce overall dental expenses. MetLife is a leading provider of comprehensive dental plans for families and individuals. Although every policy differs, MetLife may cover:

  • 100% of preventive services
  • 80% of basic dental services
  • 50% of major dental services

You can schedule a cleaning and checkup every 6 months to improve your oral health for a co-payment. Dr. Liu can monitor your oral health to keep your teeth and gums healthy. Researchers have found that every $1 of preventive dentistry can save up to $50 on restorative and emergency fees.

If Dr. Liu finds anything concerning, you don’t have to delay treatment if money is tight. After reaching your yearly deductible, MetLife will pay some of the expenses until you reach your annual limit.

Unfortunately, your dental benefits don’t last forever. They expire at the end of the year and you’ll lose anything you don’t use. You aren’t reimbursed for your premiums or deductibles, even if you never visit a dentist. Less than 3% of Americans meet their annual limits, which accounts for billions of dollars lost in dental benefits every year. Don’t throw money away. We will help you invest in a healthy smile using your dental insurance.

Dental Insurance in Dallas can be confusing, but we are here to help. MetLife recommends visiting a dentist in their network. They have pre-negotiated rates with select dental practices for specific treatments, so you’ll enjoy more coverage at the time of services. However, you can still visit a dentist that’s out-of-network to benefit from the freedom of choosing your preferred dentist and services. You will be responsible for the difference between your insurance’s allowable amount and the dentist’s fees. We are proud to accept both in-network and out-of-network patients.

We will work with your dental insurance to maximize your annual benefits. A member of our office will explain how your coverage is being used and your payment options for any remaining balance. Request an appointment through our website or call our office at (469) 949-1993.
