We Are Open – Safety is Our Top Priority!
We’ve reopened in accordance with CDC, O.S.H.A., and State Dental Board guidelines to responsibly resume seeing our patients for regular dental appointments and treatment. We want to assure you of the measures we take to maintain a clean and safe environment so you can continue to receive needed dental care without fear or concern.
While the cost of your dental care is your responsibility, you can reduce your share of dental expenses when you find a dentist in Annapolis by insurance. If you’re like most Americans, you receive dental insurance through your employer. Your employer works out coverage details with an insurance provider, often arranging to pay a portion of employee coverage. Some employers pay more than others, so costs vary even for those who have the same insurance provider.

Call us today at (410) 793-4922 if you are wondering, “Can someone show me how to use my dental insurance with a dentist in Annapolis?”
What Questions Should I Ask About My Insurance?
Simply asking the question, “Is there a dentist near me who accepts my insurance?” won’t automatically give you the full benefit of your dental coverage. You also need to know some important details about your actual benefits. While our experienced team members can answer questions about how to find a dentist in Annapolis by insurance, you should ask your insurance provider more detailed questions such as:
“Is my insurance plan PPO or HMO?”
If you need to find a dentist that accepts PPO insurance, you’ll probably have a fairly diverse list of potential dentists to choose from. With a PPO plan, your insurance pays a percentage of your care costs. If you need to find a dentist that accepts HMO insurance, your out-of-pocket costs are usually less expensive than a PPO, but your list of potential dentists is usually more limited.
“What types of expenses should I expect with my plan?”
Be sure to ask if you are responsible for deductibles and if there are limits on those deductibles. Find out if there are annual minimum and maximum benefits and if you’ll need to make a co-pay every time you visit your dentist.
“Are there limits I should be aware of?”
Find out if you’re limited in the number of dental visits you can make per year and if there is a missing tooth clause in your plan. Also, ask about waiting periods for certain procedures.
“Are any of the following covered?”
- Dental Implants
- Cosmetic treatments
- Crowns, bridges or dentures
“Which dentist takes my insurance?”
Make sure you use your insurance provider’s list of preferred dentists.
