We Are Open – Safety is Our Top Priority!
We’ve reopened in accordance with CDC, O.S.H.A., and State Dental Board guidelines to responsibly resume seeing our patients for regular dental appointments and treatment. We want to assure you of the measures we take to maintain a clean and safe environment so you can continue to receive needed dental care without fear or concern.
If you want to get the most out of your dental insurance and lower your out-of-pocket dental care expenses, it is important to know how to find a dentist in Dunwoody by insurance. Since dental plan premiums, benefits, and fees are typically negotiated by employers and insurance companies, it is possible for two individuals with different employers to pay different prices for the same service even though they are covered by the same insurance.
How Do I Find Out Which Dentist Takes My Insurance?
At Northside Oral Surgery, we get calls every day from prospective patients wondering, “Is there a dentist near me who accepts my insurance?” We make finding a dentist that takes insurance easy by partnering with multiple insurance providers. Our staff can help you find a dentist in Dunwoody by insurance, answer common insurance-related questions, and even file your claim for you. Call (770) 299-0340 today for more information about the insurance plans that we accept.
Getting to Know Your Dental Insurance Benefits
To make the most of your insurance benefits, it is important to know whether you have a PPO plan or a HMO plan. Plans that require you to see a dentist that accepts HMO insurance are typically economical and have fewer fees. The trade-off is that you are required to choose your dentist from a pre-approved list of providers. Plans that require you to see a dentist that accepts PPO insurance come with higher premiums and fees. However, you have more flexibility in selecting your provider.
Can You Explain How to Use My Dental Insurance With a Dentist in Dunwoody?
We are happy to answer most basic insurance questions. You should contact your insurance provider with specific benefits questions. We recommend getting answers to the following questions before scheduling a dental appointment:
- Does my plan require me to pay an annual deductible?
- How will I know if I have met my deductible?
- Is there an annual limit to my benefits?
- How will I know if I have met by benefit limit?
- Does my plan cover dental implants?
- Does my plan cover braces?
- Does my plan cover Invisalign® treatment?
- Does my plan cover cosmetic and restorative services?
- What type of coverage do I have if there is not a dentist near me who accepts my insurance?
- Is there a waiting period before certain types of services are covered?
- What is the policy regarding pre-authorization of services?
- Are certain specialty procedures or high-quality materials excluded?
We understand that dental insurance can be confusing. That is why our providers and staff will work closely with you and your insurer to ensure that you receive the maximum coverage for any services. It is possible that the most appropriate treatment option may not be fully covered by your insurance, so we also offer convenient financing options to help you manage these expenses. Of course, you are ultimately responsible for the total cost of any services provided.
