Understanding How Dental Insurance Works
Unlike medical insurance, dental insurance plans focus more on prevention than on resolving problems. Why? To put it simply, dental problems are much easier and more affordable to avoid altogether than to treat after they’ve caused damage. As a result, insurance plans tend to cover the services that prevent issues and treat them as early as possible. Basically, if you want to get the most value out of your dental insurance, you should take this same preventive approach.
What Your Dental Insurance Plan Covers
Dental insurance plans can differ in their specific benefits. It’s important to review your plan before starting any procedure or treatment so that you know what you’ll be expected to pay. Luckily, our team can help you understand your benefits, which may look like the following:
