About 249 million Americans, or 77% of the entire population, had dental benefits at the end of 2016. The majority were covered by their employer or some other group program.
In the dental industry, we know that people with benefits are much more likely to see their dentist for care and take their kids as well. And that’s a good thing when it comes to looking after one’s oral and overall health. The sooner we can detect concerns, the less invasive and costly your treatment will be.
At Dental Excellence of Hatfield, your Hatfield and Quakertown dentist accepts most insurance plans. We want you to benefit from regular appointments, be aware of changes to your oral health, and have the information you need to make important decisions about treatment options.
When you put your family’s dental care in our hands, we will …
- help you understand your insurance
- file claims on your behalf
- offer easy payment plans and flexible financing
- help you maximize your benefits, so you get the treatments you want and need.
Some other insurance details you need to know … Insurance plans vary greatly from one company to another and from one employer to another. Usually there is a deductible amount charged for each member of your family at the beginning of each year of coverage. There is often a maximum yearly coverage limit as well. Some plans cover a dentist’s fee schedule (approved by our dentists’ association). Your employer or insurer will have given you a booklet describing terms of your plan. Bring your booklet to our office to file with your records. We will gladly advise you on all your treatment and cost options.
If you aren’t insured … we offer two alternatives – our in-house membership plan (read about it in last month’s blog!) and CareCredit. With CareCredit, you pay for your care with a convenient credit card. But unlike traditional credit cards, there’s a no-interest payment feature when your total bill is paid within the time agreed upon in advance of dental care – 6, 12, 18, or 24 months.
Don’t put off your dental visit any longer! If you’re concerned about affording to look after your smile, call us today. We’ll assist you however we can.
Yours in dental – and overall – health,
Dr. Jessica Scordamaglia, DMD, your Hatfield Dentist
A unique, caring practice that really does focus on more than numbers.
