Understanding How Dental Insurance Work

Dental insurance is somewhat similar to medical insurance in that in exchange for a monthly premium; you gain access to discounts on a variety of healthcare services. However, while medical insurance is designed more to help people with sudden, urgent problems (like a heart attack or car accident), dental insurance is more focused on prevention. That way, patients are able to avoid bigger dental problems as well as the more expensive procedures needed to fix them.

What Is Dental Insurance?

Dental Insurance is not meant to be a pay-all. It’s only meant to be an aid. You are very fortunate if you have dental insurance coverage and don’t have to pay the entire fee out of your own pocket. Many of our patients don’t have any dental insurance at all. We are committed to helping you get the most from your dental insurance.

Some of our patients have excellent dental insurance policies, others have fair policies, and others have poor policies. Many plans tell you you’ll be covered up to 80-100%. In spite of what you’re told, we’ve found that most plans cover only 15-70% of the average fee. We realize that every bit of help you get from your insurance company is a big help, and we are glad that you have coverage. However, it must be understood that how much your policy covers has already been determined by how much your employer/ yourself had paid for your insurance policy.

What Your Dental Insurance Plan Covers

While every dental insurance plan is different, most policies have benefits that break down something like this:

  • Preventive services are covered 80-100% (checkups, cleanings, X-rays, fluoride treatments).
  • Restorative services are covered 45-75% (fillings, crowns, bridges, dentures, extractions)
  • Cosmetic services are not covered because they are deemed elective (teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, Lumineers).

Given this information, the best way to use your plan is to simply attend your two recommended checkups and cleanings each year. These appointments will likely be mostly or completely covered by your insurance, and they’ll go a long way in stopping small dental problems from turning into larger ones down the road.
