I finally got dental insurance. Why am I still paying so much out of pocket?

It is often frustrating when we have one expectation but something else happens. Your dental insurance coverage, chosen between you and your employer, works well to cover your basic preventative needs and other minimal treatment. However, when you or a family member neglects seeing a dentist for longer than the recommended six months, there is a greater risk of increased problems. Unfortunately, a substantial amount of treatment may then be needed.

Dental insurance doesn’t cover everything.
