What does this mean for you regarding dental insurance? For most people’s dental insurance there should be little change, but here are some things to consider. If you have been keeping regular dental checkups, your typical insurance should be fine. If you have some specific needs with crowns, dentures, implants or other extensive treatment you may want to check among the plans offered. In a situation like this, you may want to call my office before you select a plan.

We accept and process virtually all out of network PPO dental insurance (no HMO/DMO plans). See here for more about insurance and payment in my office.
