Dental Benefits: Paying for Dental Care

Dental benefits symbols including a tooth, clipboard, calculator and money.

Good oral care habits are about more than just your teeth—a healthy mouth means a healthy body. That’s why it’s so important to see your ADA dentist regularly. Those visits can help prevent and monitor dental health issues that could lead to more serious conditions and require more expensive treatment, such as cavities, tooth removal, root canals and even oral cancer.

But shopping for a dental plan—or any type of healthcare coverage, for that matter—can be an intimidating process. There are endless options to choose from with different types of plans, levels of coverage and costs. Even when you think you know what type of plan you want, the paperwork can be full of unfamiliar terms and acronyms that make the terms of the plan hard to understand.

Dental plans also function differently than most health insurance plans, adding another layer of complexity to the process. But don’t worry! We’ve got you covered. Below you’ll find resources to help you through every step of the way, including figuring out how much coverage you need, what common insurance and dental terms mean and additional resources for finding affordable dental coverage.
