Everyone deserves to have access to affordable dental care. Your dental insurance can help you invest in a healthy smile without breaking the bank. Our office works with many leading insurance carriers to reduce your out-of-pocket expense for the services your teeth and gums need to stay healthy. You can visit our office at least twice a year without worrying about a large bill.
Dental insurance works a bit differently than your medical coverage. Every month you pay a premium for your specific policy. Although every plan differs, most cover 1-2 preventive appointments each year. This allows you to get the cleanings and checkups you need for minimal expense. Overall, this lowers your dental costs because it stops common issues from developing in the first place, like tooth decay and gum disease. In fact, research shows every $1 spent on prevention can save you $50 on restorative and emergency care.
Unfortunately, even with the best prevention, a complication can arise. It doesn’t need to be left untreated. After reaching your annual deductible, 20% to 80% of the treatment’s cost can be covered until hitting your yearly limit.
At the end of the year, your benefits will expire. They won’t carry over into the new year, and you won’t be reimbursed for any unused coverage. We’ll help you maximize your policy to make the most of what you’ve paid into.
There are two main types of dental insurance:

Your dental insurance company has pre-negotiated rates with our office to lower the amount you need to pay out-of-pocket. You can still use your coverage to visit a dentist who isn’t in your network; however, you’ll need to pay the difference between the office’s fees and your insurances allowable coverage.
Our office is proud to be in-network with many leading insurance carriers, including:
