Just as important as the outstanding dental care Dr. Dillard and his team provide for you and your family is our commitment to customer service.
Therefore, our office staff will be happy to file your PPO insurance claims for you, although we are not an in-network provider with any plan. By filing for you, we help you receive the maximum benefits available for any particular procedure.
We will file claims with the following dental insurance providers:
and many more!
Your insurance plan includes a list of dental professionals who are in-network and have pre-negotiated a specific rate that they will charge for different dental services. As an out-of-network provider, Dr. Dillard does not have a pre-negotiated rate so there may be a difference between our fee and the fee allowed by your dental insurance. However, because pre-negotiated rates are set according to what is fair and reasonable within a region, you may find there is little difference between our fee and the fee set by your insurance.
Understanding Dental Insurance
Our staff will be glad to help you understand the specifics of your dental insurance coverage. There is, however, one characteristic that is practically universal among all dental insurance plans: benefits expire at the end of a calendar year.
Dental insurance is set up this way for one specific reason—to encourage you and other subscribers to see the dentist regularly. Dentistry is all about prevention. However, if you don’t see your Carrollton dentist routinely, then it’s difficult for Dr. Dillard and his staff to prevent dental and oral health problems such as tooth decay and gum disease. Therefore, it makes sense for you and your family to schedule six-month dental checkups, which are typically covered by most dental insurance plans.
If you have any questions about dental insurance, your plan, or the benefits you are entitled to in connection with any particular procedure, please call our office. We’ll be glad to help you receive the dental care you need and the benefits you deserve.
