Dental insurance plans are designed to cover most or all of the cost of routine treatments like checkups and fillings. The idea is to encourage you to use your benefits for preventive treatments so that you can avoid having to pay for a more expensive treatment later. Each dental insurance plan has an annual maximum, which is the capped-off allowance for treatment within the year.

We are happy to be able to file claims for all dental insurances and can confirm whether you’re in-network with us if you call with your policy information.
