Understanding How Dental Insurance Works
Many people assume that dental insurance works just like medical insurance, but this actually isn’t true. Dental insurance plans tend to focus on helping people prevent problems more than treating them. That’s why services like checkups and cleanings tend to receive the most coverage. So, an easy way to maximize your plan is to primarily use it to cover your routine six-month appointments. You’ll spend little to nothing out of pocket at these visits, plus they’ll lead to better oral health over time and reduce your need for more expensive procedures.
What Your Dental Insurance Plan Covers
Every dental insurance plan offers different benefits, but generally, coverage tends to look something like this:
- Preventive Services are covered 80-100% (checkups, cleanings, X-rays, fluoride treatment, dental sealants).
- Restorative Services are covered 50-70% (fillings, crowns, bridges, dentures, extractions, root canal therapy).
- Cosmetic Services are usually NOT covered (teeth whitening, porcelain veneers, cosmetic bonding).
So, as we mentioned above, it’s much smarter to use your plan for preventing dental issues rather than treating them, but insurance can still be a big help should you develop a cavity or broken tooth.
Our In-Network PPO Dental Insurance Providers
When we say that our dental office is “in-network” with a certain insurance provider, that simply means we’re able to offer the highest level of discounts for patients with those plans. However, Pioneer Greens is also an “insurance-friendly” dental office, meaning that even if we aren’t in-network with your plan, we will likely still accept it. If you do not see your provider on the list below, give us a call with your policy information handy, and we will discuss how we can use your benefits to help you save.
