Lake Pleasant Dentistry happily accepts most dental insurance plans. Simply present your insurance card when you arrive for your first appointment to start receiving your benefits.
Most dental plans cover routine cleanings with no out-of-pocket expense to the patient. A routine cleaning includes bite wing x-rays and an oral exam by the dentist. Younger patients will also receive a fluoride treatment during a routine cleaning and examination.
Patients who have skipped routine cleanings for some time may require a deep cleaning. This type of cleaning requires multiple visits and is only partially covered by most insurance companies.
Patients are usually required to pay only a small deductible when additional dental procedures are required. Dental insurance will cover anywhere from 50-80 percent on most dental procedures, including fillings, crowns, extractions, bridges, dentures, root canals and fluoride treatments for adults. Like dentists, insurance companies understand that routine cleanings and examinations can reduce or eliminate the need for more costly dental procedures down the road.
Some insurance plans do not cover braces. We can check with your insurance company to see if orthodontic appliances are included in your benefits package. It often depends on the age of the patient and the type of braces recommended by the dentist.
Insurance plans do not cover veneers, tooth implants and whitening. These are considered cosmetic procedures.
To learn specifics about your insurance policy, see your plan administrator or call Lake Pleasant Dentistry. Our friendly staff will be happy to provide you with a complete break-down of your benefits before you make your first appointment.
Dental insurance policies usually have a reasonable maximum payout per year. Patients who need extensive dental work that will require a series of appointments should expect to pay more out of pocket. The average yearly maximum on dental insurance is around $1,000 per individual.
Lake Pleasant Dentistry strives to offer dental procedures at a fair price. Patients have the option of using major credit cards to pay for their portion of the balance due. The office accepts Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. Additional financing is available through Citi for those who qualify.
