If you pay for a dental insurance plan, then it is important that you understand the coverage to ensure that you are maximizing all of the benefits that are offered. Dental insurance is often available through your employer, or you can purchase a plan through an insurance agent. Don’t worry if you don’t have insurance coverage though, because there are other financing options that can be considered.

AT JT Family Dental, our goal is to help you maximize your insurance coverage and manage the payments for your dental treatments. To help with the payment, we can help with the insurance claims for the treatments that are done. Most dental plans are designed to help by offsetting the costs of the dental treatments, so they don’t offer full coverage for all of the costs that are incurred.

Before the treatment is complete, we can provide you with an estimate for the services. This information will help you see your out-of-pocket costs and the amount that the insurance will likely pay. We can’t guarantee that insurance payments, so keep in mind that you will be responsible to check your benefits and make payments for balances that might be remaining.


Don’t be worried about visiting the dentist if you don’t have insurance, because there are other options available. If you are in need of dental care, then we invite you to contact our office to learn more about the interest-free options that are available.
