About Dental Insurance
The dentist’s rates are the same for everyone, with or without dental insurance. It is the LAW. During your visit, your dentist will ask you for your insurance details for the transmission of your documents and for electronic invoicing. However, it is important to know that insurance companies only talk to the insured person and do not contact the dental clinic. We can prepare for you the estimates and claims to be sent to your insurance company, but the answers will be sent directly to you. When your insurance plan allows it, an electronic transmission is processed on the same day of the treatment and you only have to pay for the portion of the treatments that is not reimbursed by your package.
Here is some general information about dental insurance:

Evaluate your insurance coverage
Your employer may have negotiated your insurance contract downward by opting for lower percentage coverage or refunds based on a rate guide from a previous year. Ask your insurer for more information and share your treatment plan with them.
The dentist will provide you with a treatment plan that includes, among other things, an estimate of the cost of each proposed treatment.
