Finances and Insurance
Your dental care should never be put on hold due to your finances. At Preston Sherry Dental Associates, we want to make caring for your oral health and beautiful smile affordable. We accept many types of dental insurance and offer payment options to ensure that all our patients have access to cost-effective dental care.
Dental Insurance Made Easy
Our team at Preston Sherry Dental is here to help you make the most of your dental insurance. We accept many types of dental insurance and we are a preferred provider for Delta Premier, Cigna and Metlife. Not only do we accept many plans, but our expert office team will also help you understand what your policy covers and how to best utilize your dental benefits. We can even help with filing your claim and navigating the confusing paperwork involved with using some types of dental insurance.
You can rest assured that we will not begin any dental treatments before discussing what your insurance covers and any costs that are considered the patient's responsibility. Together we can find solutions to get you the care you need. Contact Preston Sherry Dental Associates today to schedule an appointment.
Flexible Payment Options
There are times when dental treatments can have out-of-pocket costs, even when you have dental insurance coverage. At Preston Sherry Dental Associates, we want to help all our patients get the care they deserve within their budgets. When you need dental treatments not covered by insurance, we have flexible payment options to help you get the best care for your smile while staying within your budget.
Talk to one of our staff about payment options and learn more about how we can meet your financial needs.
We offer Care Credit to patients interested in payment plans.
Dental Insurance and Financing
We are happy to file insurance claims to your insurance provider. Dental insurance is playing a larger role in helping people obtain dental treatment. In an effort to maintain the high quality of care, we would like to share some facts about dental insurance with you.
- Dental insurance companies sometimes state that dental fees are higher than usual and customary. An insurance company surveys a geographic area, finds the average fee, and then takes 80% to 90% of that fee and considers it customary. Included in the survey are discount clinics that will bring down the average. The insurance company does not acknowledge differences in treatment from one provider to another. We believe the treatment you receive here exceeds the insurance company standards of usual and customary.
- Dental insurance is not meant to be a pay-all, it is meant to be an aid.
- Rather than saying "our benefits are low," some insurance companies tell their insured that "fees are above the usual and customary fees." The amount your plan pays is determined by how much is paid for the plan. The less paid for the insurance, the less you'll receive.
- Insurance carriers do NOT cover many routine dental services. Please do not be hesitant in asking us any questions about our office policies.
If you have any questions regarding your insurance, we ask that you contact your employer and insurance company regarding the specifics and details of your plan.
