Dental Insurance Information

Periodontics & Dental Implants

Dental insurance is a highly complex area that creates confusion for many patients.  Dental insurance is a contract between your employer and your dental insurance company.  The benefits that you will receive are based on the terms of the contract that were negotiatated between your employer and the dental insurance company and not by your dental office.  The services selected are based on the cost of the policy to your employer and the negotiated arrangements with the dental insurance company.

Unfortunately, some of the services that you may need or want will not be covered by your dental insurer.  Our goal is to help you achieve and maintain optimal dental care which is not necessarily the goal of your dental insurance company.  We certainly do not want to compromise your care based on restraints placed by an insurance company.

A fact that most dental patients do not realize is that each dental insurance plan has a dollar amount limitation each year.  Once this limit is reached, no other services will be covered by your insurance company regardless how essential the service may be to your dental health.

Our office will do everything possible to help you understand and make the most of your dental insurance benefits.  We realize that dental insurance can be complex and that it can be extremely difficult to understand.  This is why we provide full assistance to you.

Our office will complete and submit dental insurance forms to the company in order to achieve the maximum reimbursement to which you are entitled and will work diligently to make this happen as quickly as possible.

Our office remains dedicated to providing optimal periodontal and dental implant care for every patient.  We will work with you closely to achieve that goal.  We pride ourselves in helping you in any way and in continuing to provide the quality of care to which you and your general dentist have become accustomed.
