Understanding Insurance Benefits is Essential for Dental Patients, According to John Calvert DDS
Date:7/24/2013

Austin, TX (PRWEB) July 24, 2013

John Calvert DDS, a 28-year veteran of the dental industry, is lending his support to a new article that describes the importance of fully understanding dental insurance benefits. He notes that many patients have dental insurance, but do not fully understand what this coverage entitles them to. Proper understanding of this coverage helps to keep a patient’s teeth and gums healthier.

In order to make the most out of dental insurance coverage, a patient should make it a point to understand exactly what their benefits include. This means reading all of the information that comes in the mail, and taking some time to look over the details of the policy. This prevents a patient from letting certain treatments go to waste, and also helps them to stop overpaying when they do not need specific types of care. A patient should also verify that they know the start date of their coverage, instead of simply assuming it is already active.

Most dental insurance pays for two checkups and cleanings per year, so it is important that a patient makes the most out of this. Since that individual is paying for the coverage as is, they should make it a point to see their dental professional two times each year. This is recommended for ideal oral health, and is an important part of a person’s self-care routine.

“It is always surprising how many people pay for dental insurance, but then do not actually understand what this entitles them to. The person clearly sees the value in the coverage, but does not fully grasp what their policy covers. In order to get their money’s worth, a patient should have a firm grasp on exactly what their policy covers, and they should then make the most out of this insurance. Whether it is two cleanings a year or other kinds of coverage, a patient should make their oral hygiene a top priority,” explains John Calvert DDS.

For those who must undergo a procedure that is not deemed emergency work, it is advisable to consult with a dentist so that he or she can help the patient come up with a plan that makes it possible to pay for the cost of the treatment. The individual should also consult with their dentist to be certain that they understand exactly what will and will not be covered under their existing insurance policy. This is especially important if the treatment is a costly one, such as receiving dental bridges.

“Dental professionals are happy to help their patients make the most out of their insurance, and are glad to go over the details of a procedure so that a patient has full understanding of what is going on. A person should never feel ashamed about asking for more detail about the work they must undergo,” notes John Calvert DDS.
