How Can I Understand More About My Coverage?

Once you find a dentist in South Philadelphia by insurance, there are a few things you might like to confirm. Dental insurance benefits vary by provider and are also based on the specific details that are agreed upon in your plan. For example, you should ask your insurance company.

  • What is my copay?
  • Do I have a deductible, and if so, how much is it?
  • Are there any waiting periods?
  • Do you have a missing tooth clause?
  • Do you provide coverage for high-quality dental materials or only the most basic ones?
  • Do you offer any coverage for braces?
  • Do you cover the cost of dental implants?
  • Which dentist takes my insurance?

Insurance can seem confusing, and that’s where we come in. Our friendly staff will take the time to explain your benefits as best as they can. We believe that educated patients are empowered patients. It’s our goal to help you take charge of your dental health and receive the maximum benefits from your insurance provider. If you’re trying to find a dentist in South Philadelphia by insurance, give us a call.

PPO vs HMO Dental Plans

Do you know the difference between a dentist that accepts PPO insurance and a dentist that accepts HMO insurance? In general, PPO plans provide patients with access to a larger number of dentists. However, patients who expect to need a lot of dental care could benefit from choosing an HMO plan. HMOs restrict you to only visiting dentists who are part of their approved network, but your out-of-pocket costs can be much lower than what you’d pay for the same dental work through a PPO insurance plan.

Regardless of the type of insurance you have, even when you visit a dentist that takes insurance, there might be out-of-pocket costs you’ll be responsible for paying. Our dental office understands that, and so we offer helpful options like flexible payment plans and dental discount plans. If you have questions about dental insurance or other ways that you can save on dental care, please contact us today.
