Delta Dental Coverage & Availability
Depending on the elections you make for your family’s dental insurance benefits, you may receive coverage for a range of dentistry services in our dental office. In order to offer an accurate estimate of dental treatment coverage under your unique benefit plan, we’ll need to review your individual policy. In most cases, you’ll receive 100% coverage for preventive dentistry services like dental checkups and teeth cleanings. Tooth-colored dental fillings and other minor restorative services often receive 70-80% coverage. More advanced dental restorations, like dental crowns, are covered 50-70%. Orthodontics, custom oral appliances, and other dental services may be covered under some dental insurance policies, but we’ll need to review your plan to be sure. In some cases, we may also apply for preapproval from your insurance provider before beginning a more complex treatment to ensure you’re covered.
As an in-network provider with Delta Dental, we have agreed to your plan’s treatment pricing maximums, so you are only responsible for the out of pocket costs of your covered dental services. Out of network dentists may charge fees that fall outside of your plan’s set maximums, which means you’ll need to pay the difference in pricing in addition to your out of pocket treatment costs. While most dental offices do their utmost to charge fees that fall within a dental office’s set pricing, visiting an in-network dentist means you don’t have to worry about it.
