If you have Metlife dental insurance, you are eligible for steep discounts on your preventive and restorative dentistry needs. From a checkup and cleaning every six months to fluoride treatments, x-rays, and even fillings or crowns if you need them, your dental insurance completely covers or heavily discounts the services all happy, healthy smiles require. We are the Metlife dentist Maspeth families and friends turn to!
Families and individuals who are covered under Metlife insurance are eligible for full or partial coverage for certain dental services. In exchange for a monthly or annual fee (the premium), you receive set list of benefits. If you need anything beyond basic care, you will probably have to meet a deductible -- or the amount you pay out-of-pocket before your dental insurance takes over. Most plans also come with an annual maximum, or the amount of money your insurance provider is obligated to pay as defined by your plan.
People who have dental insurance are more likely to enjoy better oral health -- and that can have a significant impact on your overall wellbeing, too. Your mouth is the gateway to the rest of your body, and infections or decay in the oral cavity can quickly wreak havoc on your systemic health. Gum disease especially impacts overall health. The condition has been linked to heart problems, respiratory issues (like pneumonia and COPD), premature birth, and other serious health problems.
Because prevention has significant benefits for oral health, two checkups and cleanings per year plus a set of x-rays should be completely covered by your Metlife insurance plan. You may also be eligible for fluoride treatments or dental sealants, too. To ensure you are getting the most out of your investment, stay on top of your six month visits with your dentist and enjoy a healthier smile for years to come.
When you visit Maspeth Smiles with your Metlife dental coverage, we can talk to you about the specifics of your plan to make sure you understand the benefits that you are eligible for. Our staff stays up-to-date with the ever-changing world of dental insurance, so we are always ready to help you make the most out of your Metlife plan.
It’s easy to use your dental insurance at Maspeth Dental. If your treatment was fully covered, simply come in for the visit and walk out with a big (clean, healthy) smile on your face. If you do need to cover a portion of your services, you’ll pay the amount due at the end of the visit. We’ll take care of any paperwork for you, including filing and following up on your claim to ensure everything goes through smoothly.
