At ProSmiles Dental & Orthodontics, we’re happy to help patients with all sorts of budgets and insurance needs. Our practice is an in-network provider for the following PPO plans:
Being an “in-network provider” means that we’ve agreed to accept set rates for certain services according to the insurance company’s guidelines, which are typically discounted. Do you not see your specific coverage on the list above, though? Don’t worry – our team members are also happy to file claims for out-of-network plans as well, helping families maximize their deserved reimbursements. In many cases, out-of-network prices are extremely similar to in-network prices, so you won’t necessarily be paying more when you visit ProSmiles Dental & Orthodontics. If you have any further questions, don’t hesitate to contact us!
