Besides brushing and flossing, your smile’s health relies on the care you receive from a dentist. If you skip appointments or delay treatments because you’re worried about the cost of the services, there isn’t any reason to fret. As a MetLife dentist in Bartlesville, we work with your dental insurance company to keep a healthy smile within your budget. We’ll help you achieve optimal oral health without fearing an outrageous bill.
MetLife is a leading provider for comprehensive dental coverage to enjoy routine visits to prevent costly dental bills later while also offering the benefits you need to treat any issue that may arise. You have your choice of plans to find the best one to meet your needs. Although every policy is unique, most include:
Paying your monthly premiums allows you to invest in your dental health by visiting your dentist at least twice a year for a cleaning and checkup. Preventive appointments are crucial for reducing the risk of common oral health issues, like tooth decay or gum disease. As a result, you can avoid unplanned dental expenses in the future. Research shows every $1 spent on preventive dentistry can save as much as $50 on restorative and emergency costs.
If a complication does occur, you don’t need to wait to have it treated. MetLife is there for you. After reaching your yearly deductible, you can use your benefits to cover a portion of the cost until hitting your annual limit, which typically ranges from $1,000 to $2,000.
At the end of the year, your policy will expire. If you don’t use all your benefits, you won’t be reimbursed for your premiums, deductible, or remaining allowance. Anything you don’t use won’t carry over into the following year for accumulation. With less than 3% of Americans exceeding their annual limits, we will help you make the most of the coverage you’ve paid into.
