FAQ's About Insurance
Do you take my insurance?
I am not a participating dentist with any insurance plans. What most people don't realize, however, is that their dental insurance may have excellent out of network benefits!
If you have a PPO insurance, you are most often entitled to see any dentist that you choose. Sometimes, insurances actually cover in-network and out-of-network dentists at the same rate.
If you would like us to check your benefits we are happy to help with that.
Do I have to submit any paperwork to the insurance company myself?
Nope! We take care of all of the paperwork and submit to the insurance company on your behalf. We try to make it as easy and simple for you as possible.
How much does my insurance cover?
Everyone's insurance is a little bit different, and we would have to reach out to the company to find out details about your specific plan.
However, PPO insurance plans often cover 100% of preventative care. That means your checkups and cleanings could be have no out of pocket costs even with an out of network dentist!
I want you to check my insurance benefits. What information do you need?
A photo of the front and back of your insurance card would be ideal, along with the name and birthdate of the insurance subscriber and the name and birthdate of the patient. If you don't have the insurance card, you can give us the member ID or social security number of the subscriber and the name of the insurance company.
