How Dental Insurance Works
Every dental insurance policy is different. When you receive dental insurance coverage, you’ll have the opportunity to make coverage elections and choose between a range of coverage options. However, the basics typically remain the same. In exchange for the payment of a monthly premium, a dental insurance provider will offer coverage for a range of preventive and restorative dentistry services. To offer an accurate estimate of your available benefits, we’ll need to review your unique dental insurance policy documents. In most cases, dental insurance plans provide some combination of the following benefits:
- 100% of preventive dental care covered
- Minor restorative dental care around 70%-80% covered
- Major restorative dental care around 50%
What is the Difference Between Dental & Medical Insurance?
There are many differences between medical and dental insurance, but the main difference may be the treatments that receive the greatest percentage of coverage. Dental insurance typically provides the most coverage for preventive dentistry services like checkups and cleanings. Medical insurance coverage is usually utilized for emergency care, ongoing maintenance for chronic and systemic illnesses, and advanced treatments.
