Preventive care can save you a lot of money year after year. By keeping your regular checkups and cleanings, you’ll avoid countless visits and procedures that are often required to treat decayed and damaged teeth. But many patients wonder if having dental insurance is necessary, especially if their smile isn’t experiencing any issues. At Denton Dental Center, we know that having the right place can save you thousands on restorative and emergency care, which is why we partner with companies like Ameritas to provide patients like yourself with access to affordable care year-round. Call us today to find out how our Ameritas dentist can help you save.
Most dental insurance companies believe in creating plans that promote preventive care. Instead of waiting until a problem occurs, much like health insurers, they focus more on giving patients greater benefits for services like dental checkups and cleanings, fluoride treatment, and even dental fillings.
Although no two plans are the same, they do follow a similar breakdown of benefits, which might look something like the following:
You can access these benefits by enrolling in a plan if you have not already. With Ameritas, they require a monthly premium for access to plan benefits as well as an annual deductible to be met before additional coverage is provided. You also receive an annual maximum that they will provide, which can be used toward necessary dental care throughout the year.
This is possible because of your choice to see an in-network Ameritas dentist. Our decision to partner with this company allows us to negotiate fees and services so that you pay the lowest price when arriving for treatment. It’s not mandatory that you see an in-network dentist, but you will likely pay much less if you do.
