Understanding How Dental Insurance Works

Preventive care is most important when it comes to dental insurance. Unlike health insurance, which offers coverage for incidents that have already happened (i.e., hospital stays, lab testing, surgeries, etc.), dental insurance focuses more on prevention. This is why dental checkups and cleanings are most often covered partially or in full. However, restorative dentistry is also a necessity, as cavities and damage can occur at any time. But if you’re looking for cosmetic dental coverage, you likely won’t find it, as most policies view these as “elective” procedures.

What Your Dental Insurance Plan Covers

Until our team can review your policy, we cannot dictate exactly what your plan will cover; however, there is a baseline for most benefits:


  • 80-100% preventive care
  • 70-80% basic restorative care
  • 50% major restorative care

If you are looking for a plan with orthodontic coverage, you’ll need to review the terms, as your policy may only provide partial coverage depending on the age of the patient or the type of braces recommended.
