How Dental  Plans Work — From the Michigan Dental Association

You’ve seen their portraits everywhere – in your history books, your wallet, even on a mountain! But you’ve never seen their smiles. Maybe that’s because they didn’t have a good history with their dentist. You do. Your dentist understands your personal dental needs. And how to ensure that you keep your teeth for a lifetime of good health and appearance.

So, when you’re looking at a new dental plan, make sure you can still see your own dentist. You see, a lot of plans don’t care about your doctor/patient relationship, and might limit you to one of the dentists in their network. So, choose a plan that lets you stick with your own dentist.

Review Your Dental Plan

Make sure your plan will let you see your dentist. After all, when you wake up with a horrible toothache or your son’s fallen and chipped his front tooth, you’ll want your insurance to pay for the care, no questions asked. And don’t let them dictate what treatment’s best for your smile. Only you and your dentist know what you need to keep your smile looking its best.

Keep all these things in mind and your smile will shine brightly through countless centuries. And remember to talk to your dentist if you have any questions about dental plan options.

Unexpected Dental Costs

My Dental Plan covers only a portion of the cost of this major dental expense — What can I do?

Major dental procedures can be expensive and can be unexpected. Often even the best Dental Plans only cover a limited amount of the cost and the rest is up to you.

Care Credit can be a solution.  Care Credit is different from a regular credit card and you can use it to pay out-of-pocket expenses not covered by medical and dental insurance plans — and special financing options are available that you may not be able to get with other cards.   You can learn more and apply online now.
