A Note About Your Dental Insurance - Welcome to our practice. The doctors, hygienists and staff of this office endeavor to bring you the optimum in dental care. We participate with, and/or accept the assignment of benefits from, many insurance companies. We work diligently to help you to maximize the utilization of your dental benefits and to estimate any co-pay you may be responsible for.
Insurance companies unfortunately may not cover all recommended treatment. Accurate diagnostic radiographs (X-rays) are needed for the dental team to properly diagnose and evaluate your dental needs and concerns. We use these Xrays as diagnostic tools to determine your health status. They show us a very large area of your head and teeth which helps us to screen for tumors, cysts, oral cancer, decay and periodontal disease (bone loss). This is important to us, as your dental provider, so we can give you the very best care; approximately 9,000 people die of oral cancer in the US each year, early detection and treament could have saved their lives. This is why it is an absolute necessity here at New Baltimore Family Dentistry that we take a Panoramic or Full Mouth Xray. You are welcome to bring in or email a copy of these Xrays from a prior doctor as long as they are of DIGITAL QUALITY and we strongly advise you PLEASE CALL prior to your first visit to make sure we have received these Xrays, otherwise we will take a Panormaic at that visit and you will be responsible for any amount not covered by insurance. Your insurance company may have a frequency limitation regarding certain radiographs; most insurance companies will cover a Panoramic or Full Mouth Xray once every 3 years; If at all possible, we will notify you prior to the taking of any radiographs that may not be covered, but remember, these radiographs are required to properly treat you.
We may also prescribe dental cleanings more frequently than your insurance company may reimburse you for. Topical Fluoride treatments may be warranted in patients having trouble with caries (cavity) control or in cases of gingival (gum) recession. Often insurance companies may only cover this procedure for minors. These treatment modalities are determined on an individual basis according to a patient's specific requirements.
Amalgam (Silver and Mercury) fillings are not used in this office. We feel that bonded composite (tooth-colored) fillings provide a superior restoration, both in regards to the health of the tooth and the superior aesthetics they provide. While most plans cover these fillings, some may only reimburse you at the rate of amalgam fillings. Again, we will strive to notify you if this is the case and let you know of any additional co-pay.
You could help us in these insurance matters by providing a current benefits booklet that should clearly spell out if these or any other limitations exist. This booklet should be available from your Human Resource officer. Please ask us if you have any questions regarding your insurance coverage, and remember, it is our sole goal to help you achieve and maintain optimal dental health.
