Do You Accept my Michigan Dental Insurance?

A couple looks at dental insurance documents that a dentist shows them.Insurance can be extremely useful and necessary for you to get the care you need. Whether health, dental, or vision, trying to figure out how your insurance works can be tough. Each of these areas is different. 

Before we get any further, most likely yes, Signature Smiles Dental will accept your dental insurance whether you have a dental plan through work or an insurance policy from one of the major providers. There is more to it, though. In this post, we will go over what you need to know about dental insurance without any of the confusion.

Common Questions about Dental Insurance

At Signature Smiles Dental, we have heard many questions, including the following:

  • Does my insurance cover cosmetic dentistry?
  • Will my insurance cover Invisalign® and other orthodontic procedures?
  • How do pre-existing conditions impact your coverage?
  • Are dental implants covered?
  • Does your office have a waiting period before coverage begins?
  • Will I need to plan for co-pays?

To answer all of these questions, we will have to say it depends. Many insurance policies will cover two standard cleanings and check-ups per year. For most other procedures, they may cover part but not all of it. Most insurance providers offer coverage of between 80-100% of preventative, including cleaning, exam, and x-rays, up to 80% of restorative, including fillings, and up to 50% of major work, including crowns and bridges. We can go over specifics with you in our office.
