Dental insurance is quite different compared to traditional health insurance. Health insurance plans are designed to help people deal with unexpected problems (such as a heart attack or car wreck), while dental plans lean more toward prevention. The intention is to make routine care easily affordable so that most issues can be avoided, and minor ones can be addressed quickly, leading to better health and lower care costs over time.
Most family dental insurance plans follow the “100-80-50” model, which looks something like this:
So, the best way for most parents to use their plans is to primarily pay for preventive care. These services often require little to no out-of-pocket expense, plus they dramatically lower the chance your child will need a more extensive (and expensive) treatment in the future.
We’re proud to be in-network with so many dental insurance providers, as it makes it easy for parents to get what their child needs without breaking the bank in the process. Below, you’ll find a list of some of the plans we work with, but this isn’t all of them, so be sure to give us a call if you don’t see your insurance.
