Delta Dental Dentist Mesquite

Access Affordable Dental Care with Delta Dental Insurance

Dental insurance helps patients access the quality dental care they need to achieve and maintain a healthy smile in Mesquite.

If you are fortunate enough to have employer-sponsored dental insurance coverage through Delta Dental, you should take advantage of your benefits by pursuing preventive care. Biannual dental exams and cleanings are essential to preventing serious dental problems from developing. Accessing affordable preventive dental care through your Delta Dental insurance can help keep your smile in great shape and your out-of-pocket costs to a minimum.

Our experienced team at TrueCare Dentistry is well-versed in helping patients navigate their insurance coverage so they never have to pay more than necessary. In addition, we even file insurance claims on behalf of patients with Delta Dental insurance, saving them time and hassle!

  • 70% to 80% -- Basic procedures, such as fillings and treatment for gum disease

TrueCare Dentistry is proud to be an in-network provider with Delta Dental insurance. Choosing an in-network dentist helps you save the most amount of money and avoid unnecessary paperwork. Patients with Delta Dental never have to pay more than the fee agreed upon between TrueCare Dentistry and your insurance provider. Out-of-network dental care providers, on the other hand, can charge patients higher fees. In addition, Delta Dental pays TrueCare Dentistry directly and only sends patients their portion of the bill, which translates into less upfront costs for the individual.

Here are three important terms you should know related to your Delta Dental insurance plan:

  • Deductible – The minimum amount you must first pay out-of-pocket before your dental insurance kicks in. The deductible typically does not apply to preventive treatment.
  • Co-Pay – Once the deductible is met, your dental insurance will cover a portion of the bill. However, you may still be responsible for paying a set dollar amount for covered services. This is known as a co-pay.
  • Annual Maximum – The maximum amount your insurance will pay for dental treatment in a year. Once the annual maximum is met, you are responsible for paying 100% of the remaining charges for the rest of the year.
