Quick Answers to Your Dental Insurance Questions

Dental insurance seems simple enough until you try to actually use it, then it can suddenly become quite complicated. Fortunately, we do everything we can to cut down on the frustration and confusion here by making sure our patients always get the most out of their plans. To learn more about using your insurance with us, be sure to read our quick guide below.


Understanding How Dental Insurance Works

The big thing to understand with dental insurance is that it’s mostly designed to be preventive, unlike medical insurance which is intended to help with unexpected emergencies. With dental insurance, the goal is to help a patient be proactive so they can avoid bigger, more expensive issues in the future. This is why we recommend that our patients mostly use their plans to pay for preventive services like checkups and cleanings.

What Your Dental Insurance Plan Covers

While every policy is different, many 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 major restorative services are covered (crowns, bridges, dentures)

How a certain treatment is categorized can differ from plan to plan, so be sure to check with our team or your provider before committing to treatment so you know what you’ll be expected to pay.
