Your Dentist in Petaluma
Have you been to the dentist in the last six months for a cleaning and checkup? If not, you are placing your oral health at risk. If the fear of an expensive dental bill has caused you to delay your appointments despite having dental insurance, Dr. Bob Koenitzer has the solution you need. As an in-network dentist in Petaluma, he will help you maximize the value of your policy to reduce your out-of-pocket expenses. He is a Delta Dental Premier provider and accepts all PPO plans, so you can keep your oral health a priority.
Benefit from Affordable Dental Care
Every month, you pay premiums for your dental coverage, which is designed to prevent oral health issues from developing in the first place. As a result, your preventive appointments are covered in full or for a low co-payment.
This allows you to get the cleanings and checkup you need to keep your smile healthy. As a result, you will reduce your long-term costs for care by preventing complications from developing. In addition, after you pay your deductible, your insurance coverage will cover a portion of your treatments to reduce the amount you will have to pay out-of-pocket.
Maximize Your Dental Coverage
To make the most of your insurance policy, it is recommended that you choose a dentist who is in-network, like Dr. Koenitzer. This means that they have pre-negotiated rates with the insurance company to reduce your cost for care.
While it is recommended that you choose one who is in-network, you still have the freedom to choose one who is not. When using an out-of-network dentist, you can still use your dental insurance; however, you will have to pay the difference between your insurance’s agreed coverage and the dentist’s fees.
Enjoy Affordable Care
With prevention the focus of your dental policy, you can visit your dentist twice a year for little to no expense. You will get the cleanings, checkups, x-rays, and other preventive services you need to keep your smile healthy.
You are also given a yearly allowance to use toward common restorative procedures, like root canals, dentures, or tooth extractions. Depending on your specific policy, your insurance can pay as much as 80% of these treatments. In some cases, your policy may also include specialized areas of treatment, such as cosmetic dentistry, orthodontics, or dental implants.
Our office will work on your behalf with your insurance company to file the necessary claims and paperwork for proper reimbursement. We will help you understand your policy and what services are covered so you are not caught off-guard by an unexpected bill.
If there should come a time when you have to pay out-of-pocket, we offer many payment options. In addition to cash, check, and major credit cards, we also work with third-party financing through CareCredit.
