How Dental Insurance Works
We encourage patients to bring their dental insurance policies in to our office, so we can review them individually in order to provide accurate estimates of the out of pocket costs of dental care. Each benefit policy represents a unique contract between you, your insurer, and/or your employer, but you can typically expect some combination of the following benefits:
- 100% preventive care covered
- Minor restorative care around 70%-80% covered
- Major restorative care around 50%
What is the Difference Between Dental & Medical Insurance?
For the most part, dental and medical insurance polices are very similar. They both offer coverage for a percentage of the costs of healthcare services in exchange for the payment of monthly premiums. Where medical and dental plans vary is in the types of services they cover. Dental benefits emphasize prevention offering 100% coverage for dental checkups in most cases. Medical insurance policies provide the greatest amount of coverage for chronic illnesses and emergencies.
