The perfect recipe for a healthy smile involves more than your toothbrush and floss. Although they are important, you also need to see your dentist at least twice a year. It’s easier than ever to get the care you need without breaking the bank because you have dental insurance. By visiting your United Concordia dentist, you have access to affordable services to reach your oral health goals. Dr. Mark E. Lawton is proud to be in-network with United Concordia to help you invest in a healthy smile.
For over 45 years, United Concordia has provided comprehensive dental coverage for individuals and families. By paying your monthly premium, you have access to a nationwide network of over 127,000 dentists, including Dr. Lawton. Although every plan differs, most include:
United Concordia focuses on prevention to promote optimal well-being through a healthy smile. You have access to 1-2 preventive visits per year for little to no cost at all. You can get the cleanings and checkups you need to prevent common oral health issues from occurring, like tooth decay and gum disease. This lowers your overall dental expenses because you’ll lessen the likeliness for needing a costly treatment down the road.
Even with the best care, a problem can occur. It can be treated quickly without breaking the bank. After paying your annual deductible, United Concordia will cover a portion of the cost until you reach your yearly limit.
United Concordia recommends you choose an in-network dentist to make the most of your coverage, like Dr. Lawton. He has pre-negotiated rates with the insurance carrier to lower the amount you pay out-of-pocket. You can still use your coverage even if your dentist is out-of-network.
Our office works with both in-network and out-of-network patients to maximize your annual benefits. With less than 3% of people meeting their annual limits, we’ll help you make the most of your coverage, so you don’t lose what you’ve already paid into for the year.
Dental insurance can be confusing, but we don’t want to see that stand in your way of a healthy smile. Lelia, our office manager, is here to help. She has over 26 years of experience in the dental field. She is responsible for coordinating treatment plans and financial arrangements to help our patients achieve healthy smiles.
Lelia will work on your behalf with United Concordia to file the necessary claims to lower your out-of-pocket expense. She will take the time to explain how your benefits are being used to pay for your treatments and if you owe a balance. If there’s any remaining cost, she will explain your payment options, like using third-party financing.
If you’re ready to enjoy affordable dental care, it’s time to contact our office to schedule an appointment. We’ll help you make the most of your coverage to invest in a beautiful smile that lasts.
