Most parents have a lot of questions when it comes to using their dental insurance, and below, we’re going to answer many of them. Of course, if you’d like more information regarding your specific policy, go ahead and give us a call, and we’ll gladly help.
The most important thing to understand about dental insurance is that most plans are focused on prevention rather than treatment. This means that services designed to help your child avoid cavities and gum disease will likely receive more coverage than those that fix them. The logic is that by making routine care affordable, parents can be more proactive and help their child avoid common dental problems so they don’t have the chance to turn into major issues that require involved treatment.
Expanding upon what we just mentioned above, in most cases, the best way to use dental insurance is to have it primarily cover services like checkups, cleanings, X-rays, dental sealants, and fluoride treatments. These are usually covered 80-100% by most plans, while restorative care like crowns and pulp therapy are only covered 50-70%. Just by bringing your child in for their two preventive appointments each year, you’ll be taking great care of their teeth and your wallet at the same time.
As an in-network provider with many popular dental insurance plans, Happy Chompers Pediatric Dentistry is able to offer the most savings possible for many families, but we’re also able to work with most out-of-network plans as well. If you don’t see your provider on the list below, go ahead and give us a call and ask about your policy. We’ll likely still be able to offer you significant discounts on your child’s care.
