MetLife Dental Dentist – Castle Shannon, PA
Get a Healthy Smile for Affordable Rates
Did you know your teeth can last for a lifetime with the right care over the years? Although you may think brushing and flossing are enough, they are not. You must also see your dentist twice a year for a cleaning and checkup. It is easier than ever to get the care you need because you have MetLife dental insurance. Dr. Colleen Cain is proud to be your MetLife dentist in Castle Shannon. She provides the affordable services you need to keep your smile healthy to reduce your overall dental expenses.
MetLife Dental Coverage Availability & Fees
You may think your medical and dental coverage work the same way, but they are actually quite different. Dental insurance places more value on prevention to stop issues from occurring in the first place, like tooth decay and gum disease. This lowers your overall dental expenses. In fact, every $1 you spent on prevention can save you $8 to $50 on emergency and restorative treatments.
Every month you pay premiums for your dental coverage, which gives you access to nationwide dental professionals. You will enjoy a variety of savings opportunities on the services you need after paying your annual deductible. You are given a yearly allowance to use toward the services your smile depends on to minimize the amount you need to pay out-of-pocket.
Depending on your specific policy, your coverage may include:
- 100% coverage for Type A services, such as cleanings, checkups, and x-rays.
- 80% coverage for Type B services, including dental fillings.
- 50% coverage for Type C treatments, like bridges and dentures.
MetLife recommends you visit an in-network dentist, like Dr. Colleen Cain. She has pre-negotiated rates with the insurance carrier to reduce the amount you need to pay. She works with your coverage to keep her services within your budget, even if that means splitting your treatments across calendar years. Although it is best to see an in-network dentist, you can visit any location that accepts your insurance. Dr. Colleen will still help you maximize the value of your benefits, even if you are out-of-network.
Less than 3% of Americans meet or exceed their annual benefits. Unfortunately, this is often due to a misunderstanding about how dental insurance can be used to keep your treatments affordable. We do not want to see anything prevent you from getting the healthy smile you deserve.
Mona is here to help you use your dental coverage to reach your oral health goals. She works on your behalf with MetLife to file the necessary claims and paperwork to reduce the amount you need to pay out-of-pocket. She takes the time to explain how your benefits are being used and answer any questions you may have. If there comes a time when you have a remaining balance, Mona discusses your payment options to keep your treatments affordable.
