At our La Jolla, CA dental practice, Dr. Stephen Lockwood and his staff hold the philosophy that good dental care should be available to all, regardless of one’s budget. While we work with many insurance providers, we understand that many Americans are without dental insurance. To make dental implants, the leading restorative treatment, affordable, as well as easy and convenient to pay, we offer a variety of payment plan options through CareCredit™, one of the nation’s top patient financing networks. If you do have dental insurance, our kind, patient, and talented staff would be more than happy to help you with filing your claim. You, the patient, are our priority, and we want to make sure you receive the medical attention you deserve.
Dental Insurance Information
Dental insurance can be complex and confusing, as treatment coverage will vary by insurance provider. Some policies will pay only some fraction of the fee, while others will cover 50 percent of the treatment or more. Similarly, certain providers may only pay for a part of the cost of dental implants, although they may include preventative procedures and teeth cleanings into your policy package. Your insurance policy may also include what’s known as a “missing tooth clause,” which means that the insurance company is not liable for any tooth loss suffered prior to start date of your policy.
If you aren’t sure how much coverage your specific policy provides for dental implants, our staff is glad to give you a hand. Simply bring in your insurance card and any claim paperwork you may have, and we can look up the details to your insurance policy.
