Not only are you supposed to brush your teeth twice a day and floss every night, but you should also visit your dentist twice a year for a cleaning and checkup. With regular care from your dentist, you will keep your teeth and gums healthy; however, if you are like most, you are concerned about the cost of care. If you have dental insurance, you have nothing to fear. At Medina Family Dentistry, we work with all patients to maximize the value of their policies to keep dental care affordable.
Promote a Healthy Smile
By paying your monthly premiums, you have access to the affordable care you need for a healthy smile. After paying your yearly deductible, you will benefit from reduced costs to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
Dental insurance is designed to prevent oral health complications from developing in the first place. With a focus on prevention, you can visit your dentist twice a year for little to no out-of-pocket expense. This allows you to get the cleanings and checkups you need to prevent dental complications from developing, like tooth decay and gum disease. As a result, you reduce your risk for an invasive or costly treatment in the future to lower your long-term costs for care.
Unfortunately, even with the best preventive efforts, complications can still develop, like a cavity. To help you get the restorative services that you need, your dental insurance can cover as much as 80% of the procedures that are necessary to rehabilitee your dental health, like root canal therapy. Depending on your specific policy, it may even cover the cost of elective procedures, like cosmetic dentistry or orthodontics to improve the appearance of your teeth.
Maximize the Value of Your Policy
To make the most of your dental insurance, it is recommended that you choose an in-network dentist. This means that they have pre-negotiated rates with your insurance company to reduce the amount you will pay out-of-pocket. Dr. Allan J. Milewski is proud to be an in-network dentist with Delta Premier to help you save money on the dental care that you need.
He also works with patients who are out-of-network. Although you will have to pay the difference between your insurance’s allowable amount and our office fees, we will help you maximize your policy to reduce any unexpected costs.
We work on your behalf with your insurance company to file the necessary claims and paperwork to maximize your dental benefits. If there should come a time when you must pay for a treatment, we offer many payment options, including all major credit cards. We also offer flexible financing options through CareCredit.
