Many patients invest in employment based dental insurance in order to help offset their fees for dental care. There are hundreds of different dental plans and most provide good benefits for general dentistry.
Advances in technology have broadened the scope of “general dentistry” significantly since the inception of dental insurance in the 1950’s. Unfortunately, insured benefits have not always kept up with the evolution of dentistry. The reality is that dental insurance is unlikely to provide benefits for comprehensive care by today’s standards, and is best seen as one of many ways to save for dental treatment.
Nevertheless, dental insurance helps out with many procedures. At GRAFT Periodontics, we work with you and your insurance company to determine your specific coverage for procedures ahead of time. We send pre-approvals and claims directly to your insurance provider. This allows you to make financial arrangements for the portion that is not covered by insurance and also to receive benefits quickly following a procedure.
For certain procedures that are not covered by your dental insurance (i.e. bone grafting and dental implants), we provide 0% interest third party financing to make sure that you can access treatment when you need it. Ask us how we can help.
