If you have dental insurance, consider yourself lucky! It is a helpful tool that can make dental services more affordable, especially preventive care. At St. Albans Dental, we encourage you to come visit us at least twice every year for dental checkups and cleanings. In many cases, these visits do not cost you any extra, and they keep oral problems from developing or progressing into more complex, damaging, and expensive issues later down the road.
When you arrive for your appointment, we’ll make sure that we have your most updated insurance information. We’ll file claims for the services you receive during your visit, and we’ll collect any outstanding fees that insurance doesn’t cover before you leave. Later, after your claims have been processed, we get paid the rest by your dental insurance. Our experienced team knows how to handle this process from beginning to end, so you don’t have to lift a finger!
There are many different dental insurance plans out there from many dental insurance companies, but in general, they typically have coverage that resembles the following:
Most dental insurances do not cover cosmetic procedures, but some may cover Invisalign in part. To learn about your specific plan’s benefits, contact our team.
We realize that the dental insurance lingo can be confusing if you’re not familiar with it. So what does it mean to be in-network? Basically, being in-network means that we’ve agreed to certain discounted rates for our services. As an incentive to visit your insurance’s in-network dentists, your insurance plan then passes many of those discounts on to you. Choosing an in-network dental office, like St. Albans Dental, you can help save significant money, especially on preventive and minor restorative care.
