In-network dental insurance coverage for patients with PPO plans doesn’t actually mean you have to visit a dentist that’s in your network. In fact, PPO benefit plans are created to give patients the flexibility to receive insurance benefits for treatment at almost any dental office. Instead, the dental insurance network for PPO plans ensure you will have the lowest out of pocket treatment costs because the dental team agrees to charge fees considered fair and average by your insurer. Out of network dentists may charge slightly higher fees (though large pricing discrepancies are rare), but you will need to pay the difference in price as well as your out of pocket treatment costs. We do our utmost to keep our pricing reasonable, so our fees fall within almost all insurer’s fair price range. Additionally, we are in-network with a number of dental insurance providers, including:
Not only do we accept and file dental insurance, we will also take care of your CHIP and Medicaid paperwork for your children. We take all PPO dental insurance plans, and our team will even handle the entire claims process from start to finish to help maximize your benefits. And, if you currently do not have insurance, you can get flexible, low-to-no interest financing with CareCredit by clicking on the link below.
