Dental insurance is an excellent tool to help you defray the cost of some treatment procedures. Our team is happy to help you understand the extent of your benefits and coverage as each plan varies and can be tricky to decipher.
Some basic things to understand about dental insurance is that it typically doesn't cover anything at 100 percent except your preventive six-month cleanings and checkups. That's why these visits are so vital to your dental health. They allow us to detect any concerns as early as possible and keep your teeth clean and plaque-free at as little cost to you as possible.
If you find yourself with a tooth that needs a filling or crown, your dental insurance typically pays for a percentage of the cost. We are always very upfront about the price of your treatment and estimates of your insurance coverage, so you understand your out-of-pocket expense before completing your procedure. Just like you, we don't like financial surprises!
We are happy to file claims to your insurance on your behalf, and we work with most major dental insurance companies. If you have questions about your insurance, or your treatment plan, or your payment options, please contact our Encinitas dental office today.
