In our practice we have strive to maximize your dental benefits while providing the best dental services we can offer. We do accept most dental PPO’s and HMO’s(and if we don’t please inform us of yours, we may consider joining the network).
Please be aware that dental benefits are intended to help pay for some of your dental costs but not 100%. Most non-HMO plans have deductibles, waiting periods and maximums that limit coverage and also provide a percentage of coverage for certain procedures. Generally they cover 50% of major services like crowns, 80% of basic services(like fillings) and 100% of preventative procedures(cleanings, exams, x-rays). This is typical but your plan may be vastly different. It is your responsibility to be aware of your coverage and your deductible, waiting periods and maximums. We will make every effort to guide you and can pre-authorize treatment with your plan but understand that there is never a 100% guarantee of coverage. If you have any questions please ask one our staff members.
