Understanding How Dental Insurance Works

Many assume dental and medical insurance work the same way, but they do not. While medical insurance covers more reactionary services (i.e., hospital stays, lab testing, etc.), dental insurance focuses on preventive care. As a result, it offers the highest level of coverage for services like dental checkups and cleanings. However, patients can expect partial coverage for restorative services should damage or decay arise at any point.

What Your Dental Insurance Plan Covers

Our team is here to help you better understand what your dental insurance plan covers, so don’t be afraid to give us a call! Once we review your policy, we can inform you of how to use your plan in a way that benefits your smile.

You’ll find that most policies maintain a similar breakdown of coverage that includes:

  • 80-100% preventive services
  • 70-80% minor restorative services
  • 50% major restorative services

If you need orthodontic coverage, you should review your plan to see if it’s included. If not, you’ll likely need to purchase a separate plan.
