The dentists and their team at Advanced Dental Treatment Center are dedicated to providing you and your family with exceptional dental care and customer service. For that reason we are happy to accept dental insurance. Dr. Carini and Dr. Farr work with most carriers, so you just might be able to save money on preventive treatments, as well as some other necessary services your family needs annually. If you want to have a healthy and beautiful smile, then be sure to schedule checkups twice each year. In fact, one of the best ways to maximize your benefits is by regularly seeing your dentist in Greenfield.
How Dental Insurance Works
Although the details of your dental insurance plan may be somewhat different from one of our other patient’s, most follow a few basic parameters. For instance, most people have dental insurance benefits that expire after a specified time period, usually at the end of the year. In addition, you’re better off using the benefits you pay for each year because most do not roll over to the following year—they just expire. In other words, you have to use them or you lose them.
Finally, most plans cover preventive services at 100 percent, minor restorative care at 70 to 80 percent, and major restorative services usually have 50 percent coverage.
What is the Difference Between Dental & Medical Insurance?
There’s a difference between dental and medical insurance, and that’s because medicine tends to be reactionary while dentistry is designed to be preventive. Typically, you see your physician when something is wrong with your health—a bad cold, the flu, an ache or something more serious. Your dentist, on the other hand, wants to see you routinely in order to keep your oral health at its best. That’s why scheduling dental checkups twice a year is so important. Your dentist can help you avoid serious dental and oral health problems when you stick to regular visits.
In-Network Vs. Out of Network
Drs. Carini and Farr work with most insurance providers. But even if they are not part of your network, they are still dedicated to providing the services necessary for a healthy and beautiful smile. We will always offer you the treatment you need, and we’ll be happy to help you file claims to your dental insurance company. Please call our office for more information.
Out of Network
If our dentists are not in-network with your insurance, then you still might want to consider coming to Advanced Dental Treatment Center. Our fees are competitive with other practices in the area. Therefore, your out of network coverage may still be affordable. You can check the website of your benefits provider for information about the difference between in-network and out of network expenses. Or you can call our front office team to help you understand what your out-of-pocket cost will be for any given procedure.
