Let’s talk about dental insurance benefits, how they work, and what you can do to get the most from your money even if you do not have dental insurance. Call the office of Robert D. Moores, DDS at 530-413-7002 if you have any questions or if you would like to book an appointment today.

Using Your Dental Insurance Benefits

Did you know that dental insurance benefits often do not work like other types of insurance? Here at the office of Robert D. Moores, DDS, we accept most types of dental insurance (though insurance plans can change pretty quickly … please speak with our team to make sure we accept your particular coverage), so we like to help our patients get the most of our their plan. That means understanding your options!

The way dental insurance works is actually pretty simple. It typically covers a certain number of dental cleanings and exams, as well as possibly some other preventive options, within a calendar year. That’s great … that means you can have your teeth checked out by a professional twice a year to prevent gum disease and cavities! However, the important thing to realize is that you HAVE to use this benefit within the calendar year … if you don’t, the “free” cleaning simply goes away. There’s no such thing as “rollover” dental cleanings! If you do not get that second cleaning in by December, you do not get three cleanings next year!

This concept is true for most dental insurance plans. Please check with your insurance company for plan details. Our office may also be able to help you understand your coverage. Use your benefits before you lose them come January 1! Call our office today at 530-413-7002 to book a visit.

But What If I Don’t Have Dental Insurance?

We understand that not everyone has dental insurance coverage. If you are one of those people, don’t fear! You can still get the dental care you need. Our Paradise, CA dental office offers a couple different payment options for those who are not being covered by a dental insurance plan.

CareCredit — CareCredit is a third party lender that offers low- or no-interest financing to qualified patients. This is a great way to pay for your care and be able to make smaller payments over the next few months. You can visit their website or talk to our team about how to best utilize this option.

Full Payment Discount — Our office also offers a discount for patients who pay for their dental care in full before their procedure. Please discuss this option with our team to see if you qualify. This is a great way to save money on your dental care!
