Come See Your Aetna Dentist

Are you and your family covered by Aetna Dental? If so, then you really need to come see your dentist in Marysville at Allen Creek Family Dentistry. We are in-network with Aetna, which means that while we take care of your smile, you can save some money as well.

In-Network vs. Out-of-Network Dentist in Marysville

As an in-network Aetna Dental provider in Marysville, the dentists at Allen Creek Family Dentistry have agreed to a contractual arrangement that specifies the cost of covered services. When you receive one of these services in our dental office, we can only bill for that amount. This means that you will never receive an additional charge for a covered service.

On the other hand, if you choose to see a dentist that is not in the Aetna Dental network listed on your plan, you may end up paying more for your family’s dental work.

Helping You Get the Most of Your Benefits

As an in-network dentist in Marysville, we will also help make sure you are given the maximum allowable benefits for treatment received in our dental office. We are glad to file Aetna Dental insurance claims for you.

Almost all Aetna dental insurance plans include coverage for services that prevent dental disease. Included in this are two annual dental cleanings and examinations, as well as a full set of digital X-rays once each year. To help you fight tooth decay, dental sealants and fluoride treatments may also be partially or fully covered as well.

Some plans also offer partial coverage for restorative services such as tooth-colored fillings, dental crowns and dentures. Be sure to read your plan carefully. If you have any questions, our front office staff is well acquainted with dental insurance and will be happy to help you understand your plan.

Do not forget to schedule your dental checkups twice each year in order to take full advantage of the provisions of your plan. Dental benefits do not last forever. In fact, they expire at the end of a calendar year, so do not let yours go to waste.

Your Dental Insurance Dictionary

Although the details of your plan may differ somewhat from other Aetna subscribers, most have a few aspects in common. Here are some insurance terms that are important to know and understand:

  • Premium: The dollar amount you pay on a monthly basis in order to have dental insurance coverage.
  • Deductible: Just as with your auto insurance, this is the amount of money you must pay out-of-pocket before Aetna begins to pay for your dental care.
  • Maximum: This is the total amount that is determined by Aetna or your employer for what your plan will cover in a year.
