The American Dental Association recommends that you visit your dentist at least twice a year for a cleaning and checkup to maintain healthy teeth and gums. To make going to the dentist affordable, it is best to choose a dentist who will maximize the value of your dental insurance. At Polished General Dentistry, we are proud to be your in-network dentist. We will work on your behalf with your insurance company to file the necessary claims and paperwork to reduce your out-of-pocket expenses.
Benefit from Affordable Dental Care
Dental insurance is designed with a focus on preventive care. This helps to reduce your long-term cost for services by preventing issues from developing, such as tooth decay and gum disease. By paying your monthly premiums, you can visit your dentist twice a year for little to no out-of-pocket expense.
In addition, you are given a yearly allowance to use toward common procedures after you have paid your annual deductible. Depending on your policy, your insurance can cover as much as 80% of the cost for common treatments, like dental fillings, root canal therapy, and tooth extractions. In some cases, your policy may even cover a portion of specialty services, like cosmetic dentistry or dental implants.
Choose an In-Network Dentist
To make the most of your dental coverage, it is recommended that you choose a dentist who is in-network with your insurance company. This means that they have pre-negotiated rates to reduce the cost of services. Dr. Megan A. Shelton is proud to be an in-network provider for most PPO plans, including:
- Blue Cross/Blue Shield
- Delta Dental
- United Concordia
- And, many more!
Although it is recommended that you choose an in-network dentist, you still have the freedom to visit one who is not. When choosing a location that is outside of your network, you will have to pay the difference between your insurance’s allowable coverage and our rates for services.
No matter if you are in-network or not, we will work with your insurance company to maximize the value of your policy to keep your care affordable.
Enjoy Affordable Dentistry
If there should come a time when your dental insurance does not cover the full cost of your treatment, do not worry. We offer affordable financing through CareCredit. Based on credit approval, this provides you with a line of credit to use toward the services you need. You will then repay the amount based on payment plans that accommodate your budget.
