Common Misconception made between dental insurance and dentist
it is important to know that regardless of your dental insurance plan it is u p to you to know your coverage’s and befits what is and what is not covered under the plan. Many people just assume that the dentist is only providing dental services based on what their insurance plans has to offer. This is not always true. In fact many dentist do not even know what their patients have for dental insurance. The dentist job is not to worry about your dental insurance but to provide the best dental care to their patients.
Whit that said it is up to you to let the front staffing know you wish to stay withing your plans covered benefits. if dental services are being suggested that is not part of your insurance plan covered benefits, you will want a good reason as why. Believe it or not most dentist are not trying to charge you for higher cost treatment. If it is not within your budget or you want to stay with in your plan coverage’s go over your options with your dentist at the time. Dentist are not mind readers. Many are more then happy to work with your plans limitations as much as possible as long as they are aware of them.
