Your toothbrush and floss are essential to prevent common oral health issues, like tooth decay and gum disease. While they are beneficial, your smile needs more care than what you can provide at home. The American Dental Association recommends everyone sees their dentist at least every 6 months for a cleaning and checkup. Unfortunately, many adults don’t see their dentist because they worry about a large bill. You don’t need to fret because you have dental insurance. As your MetLife dentist, Dr. Cabansag will reduce the amount you need to pay to invest in your oral health.
Despite more Americans than ever having dental insurance, only 3% of adults reach their annual limits. Often, people don’t use their coverage because they aren’t sure how it works. Believe it or not, it’s not as confusing as you might think.
MetLife provides reduced rates for common treatments to see your dentist regularly. Research shows every $1 spent on preventive care can save $50 on restorative and emergency services. You’ll have the perfect cost-savings opportunity to keep your smile healthy. Every policy differs, but most include:
You pay a premium every month for your specific policy. You can see your dentist 1-2 times per year for routine cleanings and checkups. This stops issues from occurring in the first place, reducing the need for a costly treatment down the road. Unfortunately, a problem can still develop, but you can have it treated quickly for little expense.
MetLife will pay a portion of the fee until you reach your yearly limit after reaching your annual deductible. Our office will help you find the options you need if there is a balance remaining. We can even split the cost across calendar years.
It’s often recommends you choose a dentist who is in your network; however, you can visit any location that accepts your coverage. Our office works with both in-network and out-of-network patients. We will help you maximize your policy to keep your treatments affordable.
