Your MetLife Dentist in Fort Worth
At Distinguished Dental, we believe that getting the high quality dental care you need should be simple and affordable. For this reason, Dr. McIntosh, your MetLife dentist, chooses to be in network with MetLife's PPO dental insurance plans, which means that our patients within this plan will receive a higher percentage of coverage for their dental care.
How Dental Insurance Works
Most plans run throughout a calendar year and provide a yearly maximum that can be used throughout that year, and a deductible to be met. When you choose a dentist who is in network with MetLife such as Dr. McIntosh, you’ll receive higher percentages of coverage for dental treatments, while your preventive care is typically covered in full. This allows you to take full advantage of preventive services, which help to protect your oral health.
If you should need treatment, your insurance will pay for a percentage of it after your deductible has been met for the year. The remaining balance is then your responsibility. Working with a dentist in MetLife’s network ensures that you get the highest payment available for your procedure.
The Importance of Preventive Care
At Distinguished Dental, it is our goal to help you achieve optimum oral health, while also avoiding many dental issues that can be prevented with regular check-ups such as oral cancer, tooth decay, cavities, and periodontal (gum) disease.
We’ll screen you for these concerns at every six-month visit so you’ll always have the best chance of treating these issues with less invasive and costly treatment procedures. Your MetLife insurance gives you every reason to attend these routine visits consistently since you’ll have no out-of-pocket expense.
