The American Dental Association recommends a cleaning and checkup every 6 months. If you have dental insurance through BlueCross BlueShield, you can visit your dentist, even when money is tight. Your dental insurance keeps dentistry affordable when choosing a BCBS dentist in Dallas. Dr. Henry will help you achieve excellent dental health for reduced out-of-pocket costs.

BCBS Coverage Availability and Fees

Your dental plan gives you access to affordable dentistry by paying your monthly premiums. You can prevent common oral health issues from occurring to preserve your natural smile. If your dentist finds anything concerning, you don’t have to worry about a large dental bill. You can rehabilitate your smile quickly for minimal expenses. Although every policy is unique, most plans include:

  • 100% of Preventive Services
  • 80% of Minor Restorative Services
  • 50% of Major Restorative Services

You can visit your dentist twice a year for a cleaning and checkup after a co-payment to prevent common dental issues, like tooth decay and gum disease. By doing so, you will be less likely to need restorative or emergency treatments later. You’ll benefit from lower overall oral health costs. Researchers have found that you can save up to $50 on restorative services for every $1 of preventive services.

Your coverage doesn't last forever. Your dental benefits will expire at the end of the year, and you’ll lose anything you haven’t used. You aren’t reimbursed for your premiums or deductibles, and nothing will accumulate. With less than 3% of Americans meeting their annual limits, billions of dollars are wasted every year on unused dental benefits.

BCBS recommends choosing a dentist that’s in their network because they have pre-selected price ranges for certain dental treatments. You’ll benefit from more coverage at the time of service. However, you can still visit an out-of-network dentist, but you might pay more out-of-pocket. Dr. Henry accepts both in-network and out-of-network patients.
