Accepted Dental Plans
You are always free to select any dentist you want, and by selecting a dentist who is a preferred provider you minimize your out-of-pocket expenses. As a preferred provider, we have negotiated reduced rates with these companies for many of our services. This means that instead of being responsible for our normal fees, you are only responsible for the negotiated fees. Ask your insurance company for specific information regarding your plan.

What are dental insurance plans?
Dental insurance plans help you, as a patient, cover the cost of your dental services. Insurance plans might be confusing, that’s why our friendly staff will help you better understand the complexity of it from day 1, so you don’t have to worry about any unexpected bills.
What is dental insurance annual maximum?
A dental insurance annual maximum is the total amount of money your insurance will pay within a period of 12 months. In other words, when you need to undergo a dental procedure, your insurance will usually pay a maximum amount of the cost of your dental services and/or treatment in a year of benefit plan. This is called dental insurance annual maximum. Your dental insurance provider will reduce the costs they have paid for the service or treatment from your annual maximum every time you submit a dental claim. Once you reach your dental insurance annual maximum, you will have to personally pay for any further dental treatment or procedure you undergo. That is until the next plan year.
Depending on your dental plan, your dental insurance annual maximum only applies to the portion your insurance plan pays on your behalf. Most of the time, basic dental services (i.e. diagnostic and preventive procedures) do not count in your annual maximum.
Also depending on your insurance plan, your annual maximum includes a certain amount that resets at the end of each benefit period, which is usually a year.
What is the ortho benefit maximum?
Unlike the dental insurance annual maximum, the ortho benefit maximum does not renew. Orthodontic benefits usually have a lifetime maximum. Once the benefits are fully used or reach their maximum, it will not renew and it cannot be used anymore. Ortho benefit maximum is a limit on covered dental services (i.e. number of visits to the orthodontist) or procedures.
What are insurance deductibles?
Before your insurance pays its share, you will be charged “insurance deductibles”, which is mainly an amount you are responsible for paying when it comes to an insured sum of money. Depending on your insurance plan, the deductible amount varies.
What to expect during your first visit?
During your first visit, a Sunnyvale dentist will run a dental examination to assess your oral health and tailor adequate dental procedures.
