If you have dental insurance with Delta Dental, we have great news for you! We accept the Delta Dental PPO plan and have the knowledge necessary to help you benefit the most from your coverage. Unlike medical insurance, which usually steps in to cover treatment, dental insurance focuses on avoiding problems in the first place, saving both you and your insurance company money! Don’t hesitate to reach out to us if you need clarification, and don’t forget to bring your insurance card to your appointment with us.
Although details can differ from plan to plan, some concepts apply with nearly all dental insurance companies. Most of the time, they want you to prevent oral issues from happening in the first place, which means benefits largely cover preventive as well as minor restorative services. More intensive procedures tend to have less coverage. Although you can and should contact Delta Dental directly to learn more specifics about your benefits, we are happy to explain your coverage as it applies to your treatment options.
Again, plans may vary and update over time, so the exact fees and numbers can change. However, preventive care, specifically a dental checkup and cleaning twice a year, is usually 80 to 100 percent covered in the Delta Dental PPO plan. The cost of small restorative work through fillings is usually 70 to 80 percent covered by insurance, and more major restorative procedures tend to be about 50 percent covered.
