When I started in dentistry, over 35 years ago, the vast majority of people did not have dental insurance.  In the 80s and 90s that all changed.  Now over 80% of the working populations have dental insurance.  This is both good and bad! 

Let’s get the bad out of the way first.  Some insurance policies limit the procedures that they will pay for.  If the dentist treats the patients by their insurance limits they don’t always offer the patient the best service for their particular needs.  In our office we have always recommended the most appropriate care for our patient’s needs, not their insurance policy’s benefits.  If the patient chooses not to have that procedure done, alternate care is offered whenever possible.

Now for the good news!  Dental Insurance has made dental care a lot more affordable and attainable for many people that could never go to the dentist in the past!  Our office accepts most traditional insurance plans.

Until recently, we have also been in Network for a few dental insurance plans.  That is about to change.  As of January 1st 2012 we will be In-Network providers for over 50 different dental insurance companies.  This is something we have been working on for several months and are very excited to extent our services to a larger segment of the Central Ohio area. 

Most dental insurance policies do have annual maximums and only pay a portion of the total treatment charge. We are well aware of this.  If our patients’ needs extend beyond their policy’s maximum we do offer several payment options and financial arrangements which are outlined on the OFFICE page of our website.  We will do everything possible to help our patients attain the dental health that they need!
