Your teeth can last for a lifetime with the right care over the years, but this will involve more than just your toothbrush and floss. You’ll also need to see your dentist at least twice a year for a cleaning and checkup. If you’re like many people, you might worry about a large bill; however, there isn’t anything to fear when choosing a DHA dental in-network dentist, like Dr. Mark E. Lawton. Our office will help you maximize your annual benefits to achieve a healthy smile without draining your wallet.
DHA (Dental Health Alliance) is a trusted provider for comprehensive dental insurance policies for families and individuals across the country. They have a large network of dentists to help patients enjoy reduced costs to improve their smiles. Although every plan differs, most policies cover:
Your dental insurance plan focuses on prevention because research shows keeping the teeth and gums healthy reduces long-term oral health expenses. In fact, you can save as much as $50 on restorative and emergency services for every $1 you spend on prevention, like routine cleanings and checkups. After paying your monthly premiums, you can get the preventive care you need for only a small co-payment.
Unfortunately, a problem can arise over the years. You don’t need to worry about any financial strain because you’re given an annual allowance to use after reaching your yearly deductible. You can rehabilitate your smile for affordable rates.
To make the most of your coverage. DHA recommends choosing a dentist who is in their network, like Dr. Lawton; however, you can still use your policy at any location that accepts your plan. Our office accepts both in-network-and out-of-network patients to provide affordable care for everyone.
Dental insurance differs from your medical coverage because there are yearly limits and maximums. Not to mention, your benefits will expire at the end of the year. On average, less than 3% of Americans meet or exceed their yearly limits. Our office doesn’t want to see you throw money down the drain. We will help you maximize your benefits to achieve your oral health goals without breaking the bank.
Many people don’t visit their DHA dentist because they don’t understand their coverage. We don’t want to see anything stand in your way of a healthy smile. Our office manager, Lelia, is here to help. She is supported by over 26 years of experience in the dental industry. She knows the ins and outs of insurance coverage to help our patients maximize their benefits to keep their care affordable. She’ll work on your behalf with DHA to lower your out-of-pocket expense. She’ll take the time to explain any remaining balance, like using third-party financing.
