Why doesn't dental insurance cover everything like my medical insurance does?
Dental insurance is, in every way, as different from medical insurance as night is from day. Many people expect dental insurance to "act" just like a medical policy. This can lead to disappointment and can sometimes be damaging to the relationship between the dental office and patient.
Every insurance company's guidelines are different, every policy is different, and even routine services are covered differently from one policy to the next. The terminology used – exclusions, annual maximums, limitations – can leave your head spinning! We assure you that you're not alone; even the most experienced professionals find it challenging to work through the dental insurance maze!

Our team will work with you to help you maximize your insurance benefits, so that we can recommend the most appropriate treatment for you, based on your specific condition and needs. We never begin treatment until you have all the information you need to make the best decision for you. If you have insurance questions, we will do everything we can to get you the answers you need.
