There are various dental insurance plans today and many of the plans fully cover or partially cover your basic dental work including teeth cleanings, fillings, check-ups and even necessary dental surgery.

However, it is important that you verify if we are an accepted provider of your dental insurance company.

Since dental plans can vary in terms of services covered and accepted providers, it is important you speak to your insurer to understand your plan’s coverage and prepare before your visit with us. Keep in mind that if your dental insurance only covers part of your services, you will have a balance remaining for which you can pay through our other available payment options. If you are paying your dental services through your insurance, please make sure to bring your insurance card and a form of ID the day of your visit.

What do most dental insurance plans cover?

Dental plans include coverage for preventive care like routine exams, cleanings, and X-rays. Some plans require a copay for preventive services while others cover those services 100% with no copay. It depends on the plan you choose, but preventive services are usually covered. Many dental plans also include coverage for basic services like fillings and extractions, and major services like root canals, crowns and more.

Are there special plans or dental insurance for seniors?

Many dental plans have no age limit for coverage, so customers of any age can enroll in coverage. However, there are plans available specifically geared towards customers around Medicare age that may offer more age-relevant benefits. In many states, plans are available for customers age 64 and older that include coverage for hearing aids and exams.
