Aetna Dentist – Dallas, TX
Learn More About the Benefits of Aetna
Although brushing and flossing can help keep your mouth healthy, it is not enough to maintain your teeth and gums. The American Dental Association (ADA) advocates for cleanings and checkups every 6 months. If the cost of dental care prevents you from going to regular appointments or getting dental work, there is no need to worry. Your dental insurance is an investment that reduces oral health expenses to give you the healthy smile you desire. Your Aetna dentist in Dallas, Dr. Henry, will help you reach your oral health goals for minimal out-of-pocket expenses using your dental insurance.
Aetna Coverage Availability & Fees
By paying your monthly premiums for your dental plan, you can have access to affordable dentistry. Your coverage allows you to prevent common dental health problems to keep your mouth healthy. You can also use your benefits to rehabilitate your teeth and gums quickly. Your dental plan provides coverage for medically necessary treatments for minimal expense. Although every policy differs, most include:
- 100% of Preventive Services
- 80% of Minor Restorative Services
- 50% of Major Restorative Services
You can schedule a checkup and cleaning with your dentist every 6 months after a co-payment. You’ll avoid many preventable dental problems, like gum disease and tooth decay. You will reduce future oral health expenses because you are less likely to need dental treatments later. Not only will you save money, but your natural smile will last longer. Research shows that you can save up to $50 on restorative services by spending $1 on prevention.
If you require any dental work, Aetna is there for you. Your dental benefits can pay up to 80% of the costs for restorative treatments after meeting your annual deductible and until reaching your yearly limit.
Unfortunately, dental insurance doesn't last forever. You’ll lose any unused benefits at the end of the year. Less than 3% of Americans meet their yearly limits, which can add up to thousands of dollars wasted that could have been spent on your dental health. You won’t be reimbursed for your premiums or deductibles, and nothing carries over.
Aetna recommends choosing a dentist in their network to enjoy more coverage at the time of services. They have pre-negotiated rates with preferred dental practices for select services to keep dentistry affordable. You can use your insurance at an out-of-network dentist, but you may pay more out-of-pocket. Our office is proud to accept both in-network and out-of-network patients.
