At the Denton Dental Center, our dedicated dentist and dentistry team work hard to remove the stress from visiting the dentist. Many patients avoid visiting their dentist because they don’t like the sound of drills, they’re scared of needles, or they had a bad experience as children. Whatever the reason, we know that visiting the dentist isn’t everyone’s favorite activity, and our team of gentle dental care professionals truly go the extra mile to make your time in our office comfortable. Financing is one of the things that deters patients from keeping up with their dental appointments. We offer affordable dental care, and we are happy to process and file dental insurance claims to further reduce out of pocket costs for our patients. If you want to learn more about dental insurance, give our Denton dentist and team a call today. We’ll be happy to answer any questions you have, review your insurance policy, and schedule an appointment for you to visit us in our state-of-the-art dentistry practice.
Dental benefit policies represent an agreement between patients and their insurer. Each benefit plan represents a percentage of the cost of treatment your insurer will cover in return for the payment of monthly premiums. The specific treatments covered will depend in large part on your insurer, but typically, patients also have the opportunity to elect a wider range of treatments in exchange for a slightly higher monthly premium. In most cases, you can expect to receive the following benefits:
We are happy to process and file dental insurance claims for most PPO plans. We are also in-network providers for many policies, including:
As in-network dentists, we have agreed to your insurer’s fee schedule for covered treatments. That means you’ll only need to pay the out of pocket percentage of treatment costs. Out of network dentists can also provide covered treatments for PPO plans, but they may charge higher fees than those outlined by your benefit plan. You’ll need to pay the difference in price, and though the additional fees are usually minimal, visiting an in-network provider ensures you won’t need to worry about any additional cost.
At the time of service, we ask that patients remit payment for the out of pocket percentage of their treatment costs. We accept payment in cash, check and credit cards. If you wish to further extend payment for your dental care, we are happy to partner with CareCredit to offer low and no interest financing plans. Please don’t hesitate to talk to our team about CareCredit at your next appointment. You can also apply online for preapproval.
