Dental insurance is used to pay for dental procedures such as fillings, root canal therapy, crowns, dentures, and orthodontics. The amount your dental insurance covers varies depending on the coverage type and the provider you’ve picked. At Dental Care South, we understand that there are many different types of dental insurance that you can choose from, so we’ve made it easy for our patients to have a better idea of the providers we work with.

Why Is Dental Insurance Important?

Dental insurance helps cover the out-of-pocket costs that a patient has to make. Depending on their coverage, dental insurance makes it easy for patients to cover the costs of their dental treatments, with some patients not needing to put out much when they come in for dental care. With the wide variety of dental insurance plans available, patients can certainly look towards finding one that fits their needs.

Dental Care South proudly works with these insurance providers:

  • Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama
  • MetLife
  • Southland
  • UCCI

Some people have a high deductible, and the premiums are low, while others have a low deductible and the premiums are higher. We strongly encourage our patients to get in touch with their insurance providers to better understand their coverage.

What Does Dental Insurance Cover?

Most insurance plans will cover the treatment if it’s deemed medically necessary. Procedures like dental fillings, root canal therapy, tooth extractions, and other oral surgeries are generally covered. Cosmetic procedures such as teeth whitening or smile makeovers are typically not covered under general dental insurance plans. We highly recommend that patients contact their providers to learn more about their coverage. We believe in transparency and making dental care affordable, so we’ve made it a point to assist our patients regarding their payments and insurance claims.
