Delta Dental Dentist – Edmond, OK
Get the Most Out of Your Delta Dental Insurance
If you have a Delta Dental insurance plan, you understand the importance of maintaining good oral health. Having an insurer who you can count on to safeguard your investment and assist when problems arise can make it easier when you learn you need complex care to treat a damaged or decayed tooth. While most insurance policies are designed to encourage patients to take a proactive approach to oral healthcare, it’s nearly impossible to expect that issues won’t occur at some point along the way. This is why a Delta Dental dentist in Edmond like Dr. Smith can be so beneficial. Not only will he and his team help you maximize your policy, but they’ll also ensure you save the most money when receiving high-quality dental services.

Delta Dental Coverage Availability & Fees
The type of coverage you will receive is dependent upon the type of plan you choose with Delta Dental. Your dental insurance in Edmond will likely follow a similar format to others and look something like the following:
- 100% preventive services (i.e. dental checkups and cleanings, X-rays)
- 70-80% minor restorative services (i.e. dental fillings)
- 50-70% major restorative services (i.e. dental crowns, tooth extraction, dental implants)
When paying your monthly premium to your insurer, you can expect to receive all the above-mentioned benefits as well as an allotted amount (annual maximum) that your insurance company provides for you to use during a single calendar year.
Because preventive services are covered at 100%, you are able to take better care of your teeth and gums and minimize the potential for future problems. However, if issues do arise, you can expect to pay significantly less while your insurance picks up the majority of your treatment costs.
As an in-network provider with Delta Dental, Dr. Smith has already negotiated the cost and services that will ensure you pay the lowest amount for the treatment you receive. This is one of the many perks of seeing a professional who is in-network and not out of network. When reviewing your policy, you will notice there are typically two columns that designate the differences in cost when seeing someone who is not an in-network provider. Although you are free to see whomever you prefer for dental care, you may pay more than if you were to see a dentist who is in-network.
