Did you know that visiting the dentist two to three times every year could save you money down the road? Instead of waiting until you experience an oral health problem, which could require invasive and expensive treatment to fix, you can get a checkup, which is covered by your insurance. Then, Dr. Shelton can identify the problem early on when it is much simpler, and more cost-effective, to resolve. Even if you waited, we will still file your insurance for you with exclusions and limitations. Need more info? Read below!
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. Not doing so, may result in you having extensive and uncontrolled dental disease and will result in more treatment and higher costing treatment.
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 most cases, dental insurance contributes very little to your dental disease.
Dr. Shelton is in-network with some major dental insurance company’s. This means that she has agreed to offer some services at a rate significantly discounted from the normal dental office fees with the following providers:
You have the freedom to visit any provider; rather than choose a provider based on your insurance, choose a provider based on the quality of care and quality of life you value.
No matter if you are in-network or not, we will work with your insurance company to help you maximize the value of your policy. Reach out to our team today if you have more questions!
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 or LendingPoint. 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.
