We also accept a large number of State Children’s Health Insurance Programs (SCHIP) and most major insurance providers.
What does dental insurance cover?
It depends on the level of insurance. A low-cost plan will likely only cover basic services such as exams, cleanings, and x-rays for your kids. A higher priced plan might cover more advanced procedures and appointments with specialists, such as orthodontists.
What are the different kinds of insurance plans?
A Dental Health Maintenance Organization (DMHO) is a pre-paid plan where you choose one dentist or office for your children and only bring them to that location. A DMHO does not have a deductible or a yearly maximum coverage limit. With a DMHO, you’ll pay a fixed fee for each type of service received. A DMHO can cost as little as $5 to $15 a month.
A Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) is a network of dentists you can bring your children to see, but you are also allowed bring them to a dentist outside of that network. A PPO usually has a deductible, which means you will have to pay a certain amount out of pocket before the insurance will begin covering costs. A PPO has a yearly maximum for coverage, meaning the plan will only cover up to a certain amount to be spent on services each year.
