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.
At this time, we are not participating providers with state-funded programs such as Medicaid.
Most Americans with dental insurance receive that insurance through their employer, and they can lower their out-of-pocket dental costs when they find a dentist in Columbia by insurance. They can maximize their insurance benefits by understanding a bit about how insurance works. For those who receive insurance through their employers, the employer usually covers part of the cost of care. Some companies pay more costs than others, so dental expenses vary widely. Whatever your insurance, you are responsible for your total care expenses.

What Dental Benefit Information Is Important?
There are many things you should learn about your dental coverage, even if you’re only concerned with discovering, “Is there a dentist near me who accepts my insurance?” We can help you understand coverage basics, and we’ll outline how to find a dentist in Columbia by insurance. For more detailed information, your insurance provider is your best resource. Below are some questions to ask your provider:
General Limits and Requirements
- Am I limited to the number of times I can visit my dentist?
- Does my plan have a missing tooth clause?
- Is there a waiting period for treatment?
- Are pre-authorizations required?
Financial Coverage and Limits
- Are there annual or lifetime maximum benefits?
- Does my plan have deductible limits?
- Will I have to pay a co-pay?
- Which dentist takes my insurance?
- Is orthodontic treatment or Invisalign® covered?
- Does my plan cover dental implants?
- Are cosmetic treatments covered?
- Does my plan cover crowns, bridges or dentures?
It’s also essential to know whether you have a PPO or HMO plan. A PPO gives you more choices when you search for a dentist that accepts PPO insurance. An HMO offers a more limited pre-approved list from which you select a dentist that accepts HMO insurance. Typically, HMO plans allow you to have more predictable out-of-pocket expenses than a PPO.
At Dental One Associates of Columbia, our team members and dentists understand that dental insurance is often confusing. That’s one of the reasons we strive to work with you to make sure you receive the most coverage for your care. Please remember, you may still have out-of-pocket expenses, no matter what kind of plan you have. If you face unexpected expenses, we may be able to work with you on flexible financing options.
