How Does Dental Insurance Work?
What Are Deductibles?
Dental insurance plans come with deductibles. A deductible is the minimum amount that must be paid by the insured. For example, if the deductible is $150 and the insuree’s services cost $128, the insurance plan will not be accessible.
Which Doctors Participate In My Dental Plan?
Each insurance plan covers a network of dentists. Check with Waterside Dental to see if our dentists are covered in your plan by scheduling an appointment.
