Receiving the high quality dental care you need shouldn’t put a strain on your budget. Fortunately, people who have dental insurance receive coverage on the services that keep smiles happy for a lifetime. If you’re one of the many Americans who are covered by MetLife dental insurance, we’ve got good news -- Dr. Natasha Patel is your MetLife dentist in Orange Park!
Every year, many adults let their dental insurance benefits slip away because they do not clearly understand what they are eligible for. It’s so important that you get informed about the services you can receive with your MetLife plan. Please feel free to contact our team to talk about your coverage with one of our insurance experts at any time.
Most fee-for-service plans work like this. Preventive treatments, including a checkup and cleaning every six months, are fully covered. If we spot an issue that needs treatment during the exam, your insurance should cover up to 80% of a filling, root canal, extraction, crown, or bridge. Cosmetic treatments are typically not covered by dental insurance, but orthodontics like traditional braces and Invisalign may be.
When you share with us the details of your MetLife plan, we’ll get started figuring out how we can help you make the most out of your coverage. If there are any treatments you need but have been putting off due to finances, we’ll see if this year is a great time to get them taken care of. Of course, we will also strongly encourage you to schedule and attend your two checkups and cleanings each year. These visits should be completely covered by your MetLife plan, so you don’t have an excuse to skip out on them!
While we will work hard to help you get the most out of your plan, we also encourage patients to make decisions based on what’s best for their oral health rather than confining themselves to covered services. Our expert team is ready to discuss your options so you can make the best decisions for yourself and your smile.
There’s a reason we (and your insurance plan) are so serious about preventive dental care. It’s because regular professional attention and early detection of issues like tooth decay, gum disease, and larger hazards like oral cancer is key to finding a conservative and successful treatment. During the checkup and cleaning our team of hygienists will remove plaque and tartar from the surfaces of and around your teeth, and then take x-rays so Dr. Patel can catch any issues that may be lurking beneath the visible surface. If we do spot an issue, we’ll be able to take care of it and get you back to full smile health as soon as possible!
