Dental insurance is a type of health insurance that is designed to pay a portion of the costs associated with dental care. There are options available for individuals, families or group dental insurance plans.
Most dental clinics will have a fee schedule or a list of prices for the dental services or procedures they offer. Some dental insurance plans may have an annual maximum benefit limit. Once this limit is exhausted, additional treatments may become the patient’s responsibility. Each year the annual maximum is reissued.
