How Dental Benefits Works

Dental coverage plans are all unique to the patient and provider. However, the basics remain the same, which typically involves paying a monthly premium. Then, your insurer will pay for a percentage of the costs of covered dentistry services. While your specific coverage will vary from plan to plan, most policies offer some combination of the following benefits:

  • 100% preventive care covered
  • Minor restorative care around 70%-80% covered
  • Major restorative care around 50%

Our team will do everything we can to ensure that you receive the dental treatment(s) you deserve while minimizing your out-of-pocket expenses. Make sure to reach out to us if you have any questions about the specifics of your plan or any documents you need to submit, that way you can enjoy a smoother process while focusing more on improving and maintaining your pearly whites.

What is the Difference Between Dental & Medical Benefits?

There are many differences between medical and dental benefits. The most obvious ones are regarding the services they cover. Medical benefits provide the greatest amount of coverage for chronic illnesses and emergencies, meaning they mainly focus on helping pay when there’s already a problem. Dental benefits emphasize coverage for preventive dentistry services to keep your smile healthy while avoiding the need for more advanced dentistry services later on.
