We’re In-Network With Your Dental Insurance
Dental insurance is a wonderful investment in your and your family’s oral health. People who benefit from insurance may even enjoy healthier teeth over a lifetime, as these plans make it far more affordable for you to undergo necessary preventive care. Dr. Nirav Patel is in-network with a number of dental insurance plans, and he’s the Cigna, Delta Dental, and Aetna dentist Palm Beach Gardens turns to for quality care!
Dental Insurance vs. Medical Insurance
Dental insurance is similar to your medical insurance, but with more of an emphasis on prevention. While medical insurance works to cover your medical care after you are already sick, your dental insurance provider’s goal is to prevent the need for costly, complex treatments altogether.
Under most dental insurance plans, you can receive two free checkups and cleanings annually. These routine appointments are very important for keeping cavities, gum disease, and other oral health hazards at bay. You and your family may also be eligible for additional preventive services, like fluoride treatments and dental sealants, under your plan.
If we do detect an issue during the routine exam, we can provide the most conservative treatment possible when we see you regularly. Restorative treatments (like fillings, crowns, root canal, and extraction) are usually covered up to 80% by dental insurance plans.
Visiting an In-Network Provider Is Key
One of the most important things you can do if you have dental insurance is be sure you are visiting a dentist who is in-network with your provider. That means the dentist has come to an agreement to provide services at a predetermined, reduced rate for you. For example, if you have Cigna dental insurance, you should start your search looking for a Cigna dentist in Palm Beach Gardens.
You may still be eligible for the same discounts visiting an out-of-network dentist, but you will be expected to pay the full amount out of pocket and then wait to be reimbursed for the full amount later on.
