Your dental insurance plan is a form of compensation provided by your employer or represents a sacrifice that you have made. You can expect the carrier (insurance company) to reimburse you for a portion of our fee for the services specified in the policy contract. The portion of our fees reimbursed and the services that are covered by the contract are determined by you or your employer and the insurance company. The higher the premium paid by you or your company, the more generous the reimbursement. Dental insurance was created in the mid 1970’s. The policies generally paid a maximum benefit of about $1000 per year with a $50 deductible. Today, 40 years later, a typical dental insurance plan pays about $1000-1500 per year with a $50-100 deductible. It is difficult to rely on dental insurance to meet all of your dental needs or concerns.
