Things to know about your Dental Insurance

By: Dr. Elizabeth Craig | April 1, 2015

When it comes to dental insurance there are so many clauses, limitations and exclusions that it would be impossible to cover all of them, but I will attempt to touch on a few of the topics that come up most often in our office.

Dental maximums

The maximum is the total dollar amount your insurance will pay for dental treatment within a calendar year.  Keep in mind that all payments will be subject to deductible and coinsurance if applicable.  This included payments made to your general dentist, oral surgeon, periodontist, endodontist or any other dental care provider you visit.
