Dental Insurance

Dental insurance is a wonderful benefit! We can assist you with researching your policy and estimating insurance reimbursement as we plan for your care.

Dental insurance plans vary greatly depending on which options your employer or subscriber have elected. It is always helpful if you can arrive a few minutes early for your appointments to give us the opportunity to call your insurance company and verify your coverage.

Prior to scheduling future appointments, we will provide you with a fee and insurance estimate to help you manage the costs of your care. We ask that deductibles, co-pays and amounts not expected from insurance are paid at each visit.

Have questions about your dental insurance plan? Contact Us to research your coverage.


We are in-network providers for the following dental insurance plans:

  • Aetna Dental
  • Blue Cross Blue Shield of Alabama
  • Guardian
  • Delta Dental Premier
