EXPLANATION of Dental Benefits Letter

December 11, 2014

Our office is happy to help you with your dental benefits. It is certainly helpful to have a plan that assists you with your dental investment.

We accept most dental benefit plans, except HMO’s. We are happy to submit your claims for you. We will also make you aware of the total cost for treatment, the estimated insurance benefit as well as your personal investment. We will always discuss payment options with you.

It is very important to us to minimize any confusion regarding how our office works with dental benefit plans. Once again, while we work with most plans, we are a Premier Provider with Delta Dental. This means we are “in network” with Delta Dental. “In network” is defined as the Doctor having a contractual agreement with the dental plan provider.

We have families who have dental benefit plans in which our practice is “out of network”. This mean our practice does not have a contractual agreement with those companies. Please be assured that you are able to have our practice treat you, however, due to your plan’s contractual limitations, you may be reimbursed at the same or a slightly lower level.

Our relationship with you is of the utmost importance. The intricacies of dental benefits can be confusing and we want to remain as transparent as possible. Please be assured that our treatment recommendations will always be based on what we believe to be the best for your health. Those recommendations will never be swayed by limitations imposed by a dental plan.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask us.
