Going to the dentist can be expensive. It can also be frustrating, because even with insurance it seems like you’re paying way more out of pocket than you would at a doctor’s office. We understand how annoying and frustrating this can be, and we want to help you get the most out of your benefits as possible.
Even if you don’t have insurance we are here to help. We have many comfortable payment plans available, and we believe that everyone deserves to have access to excellent dental care, with or without insurance. If you’ve never been to our office, we have new patient specials.
How Dental Insurance Works
Insurance does tend to cover most regular check-ups and cleanings. This is an excellent incentive to go to your regular check-ups and cleanings, because in dentistry preventative care goes a long ways. If you’re taking care of your teeth, brushing and flossing regularly and getting them cleaned every 6 months, you’re more likely to avoid bigger problems.
When you are in need of a treatment, such as a filling or a crown, the insurance company will likely pay for a portion of it and the rest will come out of your pocket. This is where things may get expensive and frustrating for you, and we are here to help!
With proper planning we can schedule your appointments so that they will maximize your benefits. As long as the treatment you need is not an emergency, it is our priority to make sure that you receive as much insurance compensation that you possibly can. Everyone should have the best care possible, with the least cost to themselves possible.
Flexible Spending Accounts and Dental Care
Another great way to pay for dental treatment is Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA). They work by putting aside a specified amount of money from each paycheck. It is usually done before taxes are taken out, and the money will be there for you however and whenever you need it.
It is important to keep track of your FSA’s though, and to utilize them as efficiently as you can. Because when you don’t use them in a timely manner, they go away. This can be very frustrating, but again, we’re here to help! We can schedule your treatments so that you are able to use your FSA’s to your maximum benefit.
This system allows you to offset costs not covered by insurance, or help you with your out of pocket costs if you don’t have dental insurance.
With FSA’s it is important to plan ahead, and we can help you to do that. Again, as long as your necessary treatment isn’t an emergency, we can schedule your appointments around the time that you need to take advantage of your account. Keep in mind, most plans require you to elect for an FSA around October or November.
