Getting the Most Out of Your Dental Benefits

When looking over your dental insurance, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. What’s covered and what’s not? What doctor can you go to? How often can you go for cleanings? To help you navigate the complicated world of insurance, we’ve put together some tips so you can get the most out of your dental benefits.

Understand Your Plan

As boring as it may be, it’s important that you carefully read through your insurance plan’s documents. There are many tools and services to help you figure out your plan, and if you’re ever confused, be sure to make the most of your insurance company’s help line. It’s always best to double check! Our team is also always happy to verify your coverage once your treatment plan has been outlined.

Stay In-Network

Depending on the kind of plan you have, you could be limited to the dentist you see based on whether or not they are in-network. Some plans only allow you to see a dentist who takes your insurance, while others allow you to see dentists outside your provider. Chances are good, though, that if a dentist is out of your network, you’ll have to pay a higher fee. By staying in-network, you are able to get your dental work taken care of at a lower cost to you.

Know Your Maximums

Most insurance plans have annual maximums, or a total amount that your policy will pay each year. You should know your limit and plan accordingly. If you need expensive dental surgery, be sure to call your insurance company and figure out how much they will pay and whether or not you’ve reached your maximum yet. It’s also important to know how many services like cleanings and exams your plan covers in a year.

Read Your EOB

An Explanation of Benefits, or EOB, is provided to you when your claim is paid or denied. It’s important that you read the EOB and compare it to your receipt of the dental services you received. You want to ensure that your insurance has paid your claim correctly, or, in the case of a denial, that you can call your insurance and find out why the payment was denied.

Get Regular Cleanings & Exams

Most dental insurances cover cleanings and exams every six months, so be sure to take advantage and get the services you are paying for. Call us today if you have any financial questions or need to schedule an appointment.

Hands down the best dental office to receive your dental and cosmetic needs. The staff is always very friendly and welcoming. It’s also so nice knowing that they have 3 amazing doctors on staff who know their craft. No matter which provider you see, you just know you’re in great hands. My last visit was with Dr. Sheikh for Botox. She’s very thorough and has a keen eye for detail. I’m two weeks out from my Botox treatment and let me just say, my skin has never felt so smooth or looked as radiant as it does now. Always a pleasure visiting Dr. Sheikh!

Please look no further! This entire office has their act together. I’ve been seeing Dr Sheikh and she is so patient and gentle.She is also a perfectionist and listens to your concerns and delivers options. I’ve also seen Dr Nina and Dr Patel and certainly no complaints with either of them. I’ve had 3 crowns and numerous fillings and no problems with any of the work. Thanks for building my complete confidence!
