Question: I have this dentist I want to start going to but the office stated that the only accept PPO’s dental insurance plans. What should I know before buying a dental PPO insurance plan.
Answer: Dental PPO insurance plans are great plans for staying with or choosing your own dentist. However, I strongly encourage you to read the plans terms and conditions carefully when buying any PPO dental insurance plan. Generally dental PPO plans have waiting periods for both basic and major dental care services provide only preventive dental care at the effective date of the plan.
Under most PPO plans there will be a yearly maximum limitation. A maximum limitation is the dollar amount the insurance company going to pay out for dental care services each year. Also check to see if the plan has a office co-pay (the dollar amount you pay each time just for going to the dentist such as $20.00 co-pay) or a yearly deductible (the dollar amount you pay before the insurance company provides benefits. generally this would be around $50.00 – $75.00)

Question: I am thinking about buying a dental plan but a few people say buying dental insurance is not worth it. Is that true.
Answer: Our standard answer would be no that is not true. After all we do sell dental insurance. However, sometime when, why and who can have an effect on whether or not you think it is worth buying insurance.
When: When you buy dental insurance is important because depending on the dental insurance plan type you may have to deal with plan waiting periods. You will want to keep that in mind. Plans such as PPO and Indemnity insurance plan will normally have waiting periods. Where as HMO and dental discount plans will normally not have plan waiting periods.
Why: Why you want dental insurance deal with what type of dental care you may need. Again waiting periods come into play. If your current dental needs is just for preventive dental care such as X-ray office visits and cleaning’s you could buy either type of dental plans and be okay. However if you need fillings, crowns, extractions etc., waiting periods will once again come into play with effectiveness.
Who: Who really refers to what dental office you wish to go to for your dental care. If you are wanting to stay with a current dental office then buying dental insurance will depend on what that dental office accepts. Dental plan types such and HMO and Discount plans required you stay in or choose a dentist within their plan network of providers. If the dentist you want to go is not a provider of these types of plans then it limits you to PPO and or Indemnity dental insurance plans in order to stay with said provider.

Question: What is a dental plan compared to dental insurance? Not sure the difference.
Answer: A dental plan or rather a dental discount plan is a plan that helps provide dental care services at a reduce cost to you with dental providers of the plan. Consumers typically pay an enrolment fee and an annual or monthly fee and get access to discounted services from member providers. Discounts can range anywhere from 15 percent to 80 percent.
Dental insurance would be your HMOs, PPOs and Indemnity plans. You can see that with dental insurance their are a few plan types they do work differently and depending on your dental care needs you may prefer one over the other. Dental insurance is also designed to help reduce your cost for dental services. Consumers who go the insurance route also get the benefit of oversight from their state department of insurance, which could prove helpful if they have insurance complaints.
