• Is a pre-existing condition covered?
• Is there a deductible and how much will it cost?
• What is the extent of the policy?
• Is every member of your family covered in the plan?
the backbone of dental insurance is to take a preventive approach. Regular visits can minimize what could potentially become a

was caused by negligence. Some policies will only pay for the more inexpensive
procedures regardless of the dentist's recommendation. That is why it
is important to understand the specifics of what is covered and
what is not.
