How Does Dental Insurance Work?
Dental insurance works pretty much the same way your medical insurance does. In exchange for paying a fixed monthly amount, also known as your “premium,” you are eligible for a list of certain dental benefits. The services available for coverage will vary from plan to plan, but most dental insurance plans cover preventive dental care. In general, broader coverage comes with a higher monthly premium.
Take Advantage of Your Benefits
Most dental insurance plans completely cover semi-annual preventive dental care appointments. That means you can receive your six month checkup and cleaning, where we examine your teeth and gums and then send you off with a sparkling smile, for free. Dental insurance will also help you pay for any necessary restorative care, and the best plans even cover cosmetic dentistry treatments, orthodontics, and dental implants. You can call your insurance provider directly to learn what services you’re eligible for; if not, our office is happy to do the research for you.
Alternative Options to Dental Insurance at VL Dental
No one should be excluded from receiving the dental care they require due to their financial situation, and receiving necessary treatment shouldn’t break the bank, either. The VL Dental Membership Club, provided by Illumisure, is an alternative option to dental insurance that makes paying for dental care easier for uninsured patients. With different plans tailored to meet a variety of needs, all of our patients can find a place in the VL Dental Membership Club.
VL Dental also partners with CareCredit, a third-party financer that offers flexible payment plans and low- or no-interest loans for health care.
