Is the Golden West Dental Plan a Good Dental Plan to Buy?

08/07/10 8:36 AM

My question is the Golden West dental plan a good plan to buy for me and my family. We live in California and there seems to be a bunch of dental plans around. My understanding is that it is a HMO meaning that I will need to pick a dentist in their network.

I do not have a problem with that since I have not seen the dentist in a long time time. My kids need to see the dentist as well. Golden West has two basic planc to choos from. The GW100 HMO SmileChoice 100 Dental Plan for $7.64 a month and the GW200 HMO SmileChoice 200 Dental Plan for $19.11 a month.It looks like they just raised their rates from $6.50 for the 100.

I found that if you buy the GW200 plan teeth cleanings only cost five bucks.That seems like a really good deal. Anyway I would recommend the dental plan just be sure there is a local dentist you can see. I found most of this information at their Golden West dental plan site.

    Thanks Olivia for the info on the Golden West dental plan. My buddy has it and sent me this breakdown for the cost of filings. Seems they are pretty good. I check to see if the local dentist was accepts by the California ADA and all checks out.

    Restorative Amalgam Restorations (Including Polishing)
    2110 Amalgam – One Surface – Primary $6
    2120 Amalgam – Two Surfaces – Primary $11
    2130 Amalgam – Three Surfaces – Primary $13
    2131 Amalgam – Four or More Surfaces – Primary $19
    2140 Amalgam-One Surface – Permanent $8
    2150 Amalgam-Two Surfaces – Permanent $13
    2160 Amalgam-Three Surfaces – Permanent $21
    2161 Amalgam-Four or More Surfaces – Permanent $24
    2332 Resin Restoration – Three Surfaces – Anterior $28
    2335 Resin Restoration – Four or More Surfaces – Anterior $34

    These were the costs I found that you would pay. Is this correct?

    Thanks, SW.
