Dental Benefit Plans

Patient completing dental insurance formsIf the very thought of your dental insurance policy gives you a headache, you’re not alone. Dental benefit plans can be baffling to many patients, but our dentistry team is here to help you better understand your dental insurance coverage. Every month, you’ll need to pay a premium to cover the dental insurance policy. Your dental insurance plan will set average fees for common dentistry services, and offer you coverage for a percentage of this average treatment cost. Most plans also have annual maximums that limit the total amount of coverage you’ll receive from a dental insurance plan. In most cases, your coverage will break down as follows:

  • 80 to 100% of the fair price of preventive dentistry services are covered
  • 50 to 80% of the fair price of restorative dentistry services are covered
  • About 50% of the fair price of orthodontic services are covered
  • Dental implants and cosmetic dentistry are not typically covered

In-Network Dental Insurance Coverage

Patients calculating insurance costs

In-network dental insurance providers agree to charge the fees your insurer considers to be fair and average. That means you’ll only need to pay for the out of pocket cost of treatment. Out of network dental insurance providers may charge fees higher than your insurer’s fair and average price, but you will need to cover the difference in the price as well as the out of pocket percentage of your treatment cost. Thornton Dental Wellness offers in-network benefit coverage for a number of plans, including the following:

  • MetLife PDP Plus
  • MetLife FEDVIP
  • Ameritas PPO
  • Guardian PPO
  • Principal PPO

Maximizing Dental Insurance Benefits

Dentist helping patient with dental insuranceBy visiting our office twice a year for dental checkups, you can be sure to make the most of your dental insurance benefits. These treatments typically receive dental insurance coverage of 80 to 100%. When you keep your preventive dentistry appointments, not only do you receive the highest dental insurance coverage; you also reduce your risk for more advanced dental health concerns that receive lower coverage under most benefit plans. If you’re not already visiting our office every six months, call our Marietta dentistry team to get started today. We look forward to helping you achieve and maintain your healthiest smiles for a lifetime.
