Greetings fellow San Franciscans!

Have you been pondering over which dental insurance plan would be best tailored for your family’s needs? With a myriad of options at disposal, making a well-informed choice may seem like a daunting task. Let’s look at what should be considered when choosing a dental insurance plan.

Monthly premium, waiting period, HMO/PPO nature of the plan, frequency limitation, missing tooth clause, orthodontics benefits, yearly maximum, deductible and many more are things that should be considered when choosing a dental insurance plan.

There are a lot of dental insurance companies that are providing group as well as individual plans and policies in the Bay Area: Delta, Metlife, Cigna, Aetna, Anthem, Blue Cross, Guardian and many more.

If your insurance options are coming from your employer, then chances are that they have already limited your options by offering you one or two plans to choose from.

If you are purchasing the plan as an individual, then choices are a lot more typically.

If you want to have a choice to go to whomever that you want as a provider, you typically want to choose a PPO plan.

If you want to pay little monthly premium, then often times you end up with an HMO plan which means that you have to go to the offices/providers that the insurance assigns you to ( you give up choice in exchange for monthly premium reduction).

As for which insurance company/carrier to go with, you want to look at what clinical needs you have (you need a full examination for that by a dentist), and then see about the companies that may be accepted by the office that you prefer to go to. Thereon, you can narrow down the plan/policy that would fit your clinical needs best.

And if you don’t want to subscribe to a commercial dental insurance, no worries; there are many people who don’t and pay for their treatment when needed without subscribing to a dental plan. Depending on your genetics and oral hygiene, that could be a better option for a lot of people.

At Soothing Dental, we accept all dental PPO plans. And we also do offer our own in-house dental plans that are catered towards patients who don’t have any insurance plans and want to be seen in our office. That gives them access to discounts that would otherwise not be available.
