Insurance Information:

Your dental insurance is designed to assist you, the policy holder, with dental fees. However, few policies provide complete coverage.
Our business assistants deal with many different insurance companies and are knowledgeable about the coverage of most insurance plans. They will do their best to provide you with as accurate coverage estimates based on information available to us. The business assistants will file the pre-determination of benefits for you.
