About Dental Insurance
Navigating the world of dental insurance can be challenging. At BrittonDDS, our mission is to demystify insurance and help you make informed decisions about your oral health.
At BrittonDDS, we accept a variety of PPO insurance plans to accommodate your dental care needs. Specifically, we are in network with Delta Dental (both PPO and Premier plans), Principal, Humana, and most Cigna and Aetna plans. Please verify with your insurance provider to ensure compatibility with our services.
Note that we do not participate with any HMO or VMO plans.
Understanding Your Dental Insurance
With the evolving landscape of healthcare, dental insurance is adapting. Let’s simplify the intricacies of dental coverage together.
Estimating Treatment Costs
Before commencing any treatment, it’s a prudent idea to converse with our financial coordinator. They can provide an estimate of costs and payment options. For those with insurance, this discussion can help understand the portion covered by insurance and the out-of-pocket expenses. Sometimes, depending on the specific plan, paying out-of-pocket might be more cost-effective.
Remember: Financial planning is the key to ensuring quality dental care doesn’t strain your wallet. Talk to us, and we’ll craft the best strategy for you.
What Other Payment Options Are There?
Cash and Card Payments
At Britton DDS, we gladly accept cash and most major credit/debit cards for your convenience. This allows for straightforward, hassle-free transactions, ensuring your dental care experience is as smooth and accessible as possible.
Discover the convenience and affordability of our Britton DDS Membership Club, tailored to meet the dental needs of you and your family. Our membership club offers three distinct packages, including a specialized pediatric package, ensuring comprehensive dental care for all ages. Whether you’re seeking regular check-ups, preventive care, or more extensive dental treatments, our membership plans are designed to provide quality care without the constraints of traditional insurance.
At Britton DDS, we accept CareCredit, a healthcare credit card that assists with dental health and wellness expenses. This flexible financing option provides a convenient way to cover out-of-pocket costs not covered by insurance, with special financing options that offer more flexibility than typical credit cards. Use CareCredit for a range of dental services, ensuring easy management of your dental care expenses.
HMO vs. PPO: Which is Better?
Given a choice between HMO and PPO, we recommend PPO. It offers flexibility in choosing your healthcare providers, even those outside your network. Although sometimes marginally more expensive, a PPO typically provides more comprehensive coverage and flexibility.
The Bottom Line on Dental Insurance
Dental insurance can be a maze, with evolving guidelines and norms. Some dental practices may emphasize upselling to offset the reduced income from insurance acceptances. These hidden charges are akin to the unexpected fees when buying an airline ticket.
At Britton DDS, our emphasis is on patient care. We prioritize time with our patients, use top-notch materials, and harness the latest technological advances for optimal results. While we may not be in network with every PPO insurance, we guarantee transparent discussions about fees and services based on the information your insurance has provided us. We can also shed light on hidden downgrade fees in insurance plans, ensuring you’re informed every step of the way.
Our commitment: To provide unparalleled care while assisting you in navigating the intricacies of dental insurance.
