Delta Dental – Dallas, TX
Learn More About the Benefits of Delta Dental
Your dental insurance gives you access to the services your teeth and gums need for affordable rates. Paying your monthly premiums allows you to visit your dentist regularly with no worry about a large bill. Although more Americans than ever have dental coverage, less than 3% meet or exceed their annual limits. Dental insurance can be confusing, but you don’t have to navigate your policy alone. Your Delta Dental dentist in Dallas will help you reach your oral health goals without costing you an arm or a leg.
Delta Dental Coverage Availability & Fees
Delta Dental is a nationwide provider of comprehensive dental plans for individuals and families. Although every policy differs, most include:
- 100% coverage for preventive dentistry
- 80% coverage for minor restorative dentistry
- 50% coverage for major restorative dentistry
Delta Dental designs its policies to stop common oral health issues from occurring, like tooth decay and gum disease. A healthy smile supports a healthy body, but it also reduces the risk of tooth loss. Preserving your natural smile with routine cleanings and checkups will help you avoid costly dental bills later to save money down the road. Research has found that every $1 spent on prevention can save up to $50 on restorative fees. You can visit your dentist every 6 months for a cleaning and checkup after a co-payment.
If your dentist finds anything concerning, you don’t need to wait to have the issue treated because Delta Dental will pay a portion of the cost. After meeting your yearly deductible, you can use your allowance to offset the amount you’ll pay for common restorative procedures, like fillings, root canals, or tooth extractions.
You have until the end of the year to use your insurance benefits before they reset. Anything you don’t use won’t carry over, and you aren’t reimbursed for your premiums or deductibles. Visiting your dentist allows you to make the most of your monthly investment to achieve optimal oral health.
Delta Dental recommends choosing a dentist that’s in their network to benefit from more coverage at the time of services. They have pre-negotiated rates with preferred dental practices; however, you can use your insurance at any dentist that accepts your plan. You’ll have to pay the difference between your insurance’s allowable coverage and the office fees when choosing an out-of-network dentist. We are proud to accept both in-network and out-of-network patients.
