Dental insurance is an important benefit, and we want you to get the most out of your coverage. As part of every treatment plan, we will review your insurance and estimate what your out-of-pocket expense will be.
Every policy is different, but most have “100-80-50” coverage, which means preventive and diagnostic care like exams, cleanings, and x-rays are covered at 100 percent; fillings, root canals, and other routine services are covered at 80 percent and at 50 percent for crowns, bridges, and major procedures.
Dental insurance rarely covers the cost of cosmetic dental treatment. But many restorative procedures like fillings and dental crowns improve your oral health and your appearance.
You can be confident that we will inform you about your benefits before we begin treatment at our Chehalis dental practice. Before we begin any work, we will do our best to provide you with an accurate estimate of your out-of-pocket costs.
It can be a challenge to understand how dental benefits apply, so if you ever have questions, please call our Chehalis dental office at (360) 748-6624.
