“I have no dental insurance. Can I just get my teeth cleaned?”
Yes. But please keep in mind that without a complete dental examination along with diagnostic X-ray imaging, we cannot assure you that there is no dental or oral health problem at the time of your visit.
“If I have insurance, is everything covered?”
Insurance coverage depends upon the amount of coverage that your employer purchased for you.
In general, insurance will cover most preventative procedures, such as examinations and cleanings. Even then, insurance may only cover those procedures once or twice a year.
Restorative procedures are usually covered a certain percentage after your yearly deductible is paid (by you, the patient) and you will be responsible for the remainder (co-pay).
Please check with your company’s benefits office for complete details.
