At Kind Care Dentistry, Dr. Natasha Patel and our whole team place significant value in providing high quality service, and we strive to do it at a price you can afford. On top of offering all our treatments at reasonable fees, your dentist is also in-network with a number of dental insurance providers -- including Aetna! As one of the biggest groups in the country, a number of our patients receive helpful discounts on dental services at Kind Care Dentistry through Aetna dental insurance.
We invite you to keep reading to learn more about dental insurance, including how it works, and how we’ll help you make the most out of your plan!
Aetna is a fee-for-service plan, meaning you receive a list of services for free or heavily discounted in exchange for a monthly premium (a set amount of money you pay every month). These treatments range from your six month checkup and cleaning to restorative treatments like tooth extraction, root canal, and tooth replacement.
When you visit an in-network dentist like Dr. Patel, you won’t have to pay the full amount and wait for a reimbursement later on. Instead, you are eligible for your discounts right off the bat. Just pay any amount that is not completely covered at the time of your appointment and walk away with a cleaner, healthier smile.
We take care of all claims filing and follow-up to ensure we receive the full payment on the backend.
Sometimes, people fail to make the most out of their dental insurance plan because they are unsure of exactly what they’re eligible for. That won’t happen to you with a team of experts on your side!
Our staff will verify your benefits and help you determine which treatments will help you most along on your oral health care journey. We will also cover the ins and outs of your Aetna plan, like what your deductible is, how much your insurance has committed to pay per year (your annual maximum), and other important details.
Remember that while we will always try to help you make the most out of your plan, we still always encourage patients to make decisions based on what’s in the best interest for their oral health, rather than what’s covered under their plan.
Your dental insurance benefits will cover two checkups and cleanings annually along with a set of x-rays and maybe topical fluoride treatments and dental sealants for additional cavity prevention. Make sure you are taking advantage of these treatments -- you will notice your oral health and your wallet benefit when you do!
When was the last time you came into Kind Care Dentistry for routine dental care? If it’s been longer than six months, you are overdue for the services that help you and your loved ones enjoy healthy, long lasting smiles. We invite you to maximize on your Aetna dental insurance by scheduling an appointment today!
