Parkway Dental accepts all of the major dental insurance providers. About two-thirds of Americans have access to dental insurance. Most people have insurance through their employees. There are some misconceptions about Here are some things that people don’t understand about dental insurance and how patients should use their dental insurance.

  • You’ll likely receive two FREE dental cleanings and exams a year. If you haven’t scheduled your next dental exam of the year, get it scheduled today.
  • Most dental insurance policies give patients a yearly allotment to spend on their dentistry (Most dental insurance cardholders receive between $1,000 and $1,500).
  • Most dental insurance only covers a portion of necessary treatments like fillings or crowns. So even though you pay for insurance with monthly premiums, it’s liking you’ll still need to pay for a portion of any treatment. It’s also possible that insurance companies will not cover certain procedures like orthodontics
  • Insurance dollars will not carry over to the next year. If you do not spend your annual allotment of dental dollars by Dec. 31 this year, it doesn’t go back to you. The insurance company pockets the money! So, if you pay for dental insurance and don’t go to the dentist, then you’re throwing away your money … literally.
