Your toothbrush and floss are essential tools to have by your side to maintain a healthy, beautiful smile. Although they are effective in combating tooth decay and gum disease, they aren’t the only care your smile needs. The American Dental Association recommends everyone visits their dentist for a cleaning and checkup at least twice a year. It’s natural to worry about a large bill, but you have nothing to fear because you have dental insurance. With a Delta Dental in-network dentist by your side, you’ll get the affordable, comprehensive services your smile needs to last for a lifetime.
Delta Dental provides coverage for over 34.5 million people, giving them access to reduced rates for the services your teeth and gums rely on to stay healthy. You’ll have a nationwide network of dental professionals behind you, including our team at Encore Dentistry. Although every plan differs, most policies include:
Dental insurance is designed with prevention in mind because it reduces your overall oral health expenses by keeping your teeth and gums healthy. In fact, research shows every $1 spent on prevention can save $50 on restorative or emergency care. Delta Dental makes it easy to get routine preventive services. After paying your monthly premiums, you can get the cleanings and checkups you need for only a small co-payment.
Even with the best prevention, a problem can arise. It doesn’t need to be left untreated because Delta Dental is there for you. After paying your annual deductible, you’re given a yearly limit to use toward the restorative services you need to rehabilitate your smile for minimal out-of-pocket cost.
Unfortunately, at the end of the year, your coverage will expire. You will not be reimbursed for any unused benefits, and they won’t carry over into the new year. With less than 3% of Americans reaching their yearly limits, we will help you maximize your coverage to achieve your dental goals for reduced rates.
Delta Dental recommends you visit an in-network dentist to make the most of your policy, but you still have the freedom to visit any location that accepts your insurance. We work with both in-network and out-of-network patients to keep our services affordable, so nothing stands in your way of a healthy smile.
Dental insurance can be confusing, which is why our patient care coordinator is here to help. Jason has been with our practice since our doors opened. He’s supported by extensive experience in the dental field to help you understand how your benefits are being used. Jason will work on your behalf with Delta Dental to file the necessary claims and forms, so you have one less thing on your to-do list. He will explain any remaining balance and discuss your payment options, like third-party financing with CareCredit.
