We Accept Dental Insurance Plans in Peoria

When you need a dentist, you have probably found yourself thinking, “How do I find a dentist that takes my insurance?” Most of our patients receive dental insurance through their employer. The employer will typically negotiate on behalf of the employees, they will also pay for part of the cost of the insurance selected. For this reason, the cost for a dental service at our office will vary by patient depending on the type of insurance they have. It is important to note that even with insurance, patients are ultimately responsible for the total cost of the services received.

With years of experience in the dental industry, we know how to work with clients to ensure they get the most out of their dental plan. If you have thought, “Is there an easy way to learn how to use my dental insurance with a dentist in Peoria?” then dial (309) 740-3901 to schedule an appointment and discover what we can do for you.

Is There an Easy Way to Understand the Benefits of Your Dental Insurance Plan?

Many people are unaware of the many benefits of their dental insurance plan. They often wonder, “How do I find a dentist near me who accepts my insurance?” At our office, we understand that learning all of the benefits of your plan may take time. When you have questions about how to find a dentist in Peoria by insurance, our team is here to help. While we can answer many questions, some issues are best discussed with your insurance provider directly. These questions may include things like:

  • How many dental visits do I get each year?
  • Do certain services require pre-authorization?
  • Which dentist takes my insurance?
  • Are there minimum and maximum annual benefits for my plan?
  • What type of insurance do I have?
  • Does my dental insurance plan cover dental implants?
  • Are there any deductible limits I should be aware of?
  • Is Invisalign® covered by my insurer?
  • What visit fees and copays will I be responsible for?
  • What types of cosmetic or orthodontic options are covered by my insurance?
  • How can I find a dentist in Peoria by insurance?

The answer to many of these questions may be available through printed policy materials. If you are unable to find any of these answers, you may want to give your insurer a call. In addition to these questions, you will also need to know what type of insurance you have. This is the best way to know if you need to find a dentist that accepts PPO insurance or a dentist that accepts HMO insurance. One major difference between the two is that HMO plans may offer lower premiums, but have a smaller selection of dentists to choose from. A PPO plan may require a copay for office visits, but have a great selection of dentists to choose from.
