Dental Insurance and Medical Insurance

About half of our patients at MoreSMILES Dental have dental insurance.  Our team is expert at researching individual policies to help our patients understand what to expect from their insurance carrier and to be prepared for their own out-of-pocket expense.  It is our policy to always INFORM before we PERFORM to make sure there is clear, mutual understanding and expectation.

While in-network benefits are available in our office for some dental plans, there are other procedures that may not be covered by insurance at all, or may have limited benefits relative to the level of experience and resources we commit to our patients.  But we are always prepared to discuss options to help our patients comfortably afford the level of care we provide, and we work with your insurance company to maximize your benefits and accept assignment of benefits on your behalf.

Medical insurance benefits may also apply to some procedures performed in our dental office, such as Oral Sleep Appliance therapy for sleep breathing disorders (sleep apnea and snoring).  We are also a Medicare approved provider of these devices.  While sleep apnea is a medical diagnosis, and we work with sleep physicians, the oral appliances should be covered if your medical insurance includes coverage for Durable Medical Equipment (DME's).

Our Insurance Coordinator, Jessica, and our Sleep Coordinator, Lori, will be happy to answer your questions and help you determine any benefits that may apply for treatment in our office.

I think dentures should be taken good care as well because they can be susceptible to bacteria.
