Accepted Insurances and Payment Types: Affordable Pediatric Focused Dentistry
We make every effort to ensure that you have access to dental care that is a necessary part of overall health and wellness, such as twice yearly cleanings, exams, and routine restorations to correct tooth decay. Our Tulsa dentists are able to meet these goals by accepting the following payment types:
• Some insurances
• Visa, Mastercard and Discover
Through SoonerCare and Medicaid-accepted services at Kid’s Dental, we happily welcome kids whose parents are able to take advantage of the benefits these programs offer. With coverage provided for reduced income households, children can enjoy the many benefits of prolonged dental health. Treatments covered under SoonerCare include preventive dental cleanings, as well as fillings and crowns. For more information on insurance coverage and benefits, it’s always a good idea to check with your insurance provider and bring additional questions to our office.
What Does Insurance Cover?
In general, most insurance plans provide the highest level of benefit for services that are meant to prevent disease and serious health issues. In terms of dentistry, this means routine examinations that can include X-rays and hygiene visits where teeth are cleaned, flossed, and polished. For many patients, their responsibility is usually a small co-pay, but it’s important to note that coverage varies from plan to plan.
Standard and long-lasting materials for common restorations are usually covered as well, including metal or composite dental fillings and porcelain-fused-to-metal crowns. While materials that are focused on cosmetics, such as all-porcelain prosthetics, are usually not covered, options like white fillings have become more frequently accepted through many insurance providers.
Maximizing Insurance Benefits
We know that insurance can be confusing, but we’re here to help. We collect information about your insurance provider at the time of your first visit and make a note to ask, at each check-up, whether anything has changed, so there are no roadblocks to having your child’s treatment accepted. If there are any issues with coverage or payment, we make sure to bring these to your attention in a timely manner and maximize all available coverage for your child’s health needs.
