We Accept All Major Insurance

Dental care is very important for your overall health & wellness, & dental insurance is how most people access that care. As with other insurances, dental insurance can be confusing, & unfortunately, that confusion can keep patients from making it in to see a dentist.

At Smile Dental Kingston, we know there are many barriers to getting quality dental care. We do our best to break down those barriers. In addition to our convenient hours, we accept dental insurance from all major providers, such as Delta Dental, Humana & Cigna.

Understanding Your Dental Insurance

In-Network vs. Out-of-Network

Many patients get confused about whether a dental practice is in-network or out-of-network with their dental insurance provider & what that means. While “out-of-network” sounds like the practice wouldn’t take your insurance, that’s not always the case & depends on the type of insurance plan you have.

HMO Plans

HMO plans only cover dental work done by dentists that are in-network, & referrals to specialists must be provided by that dentist. If you have an HMO plan, be sure to look for a dentist in their network.

PPO Plans

PPO plans are much more flexible & the distinction between in-network & out-of-network is much less limiting. When a dental practice is in-network with a PPO insurance provider, it just means they have a deal where the practice can charge the patient a smaller portion of the total cost for treatment services. However, even out-of-network costs are often quite reasonable.

Choosing a Dentist

Regardless of insurance considerations, we encourage you to select your dentist based on other important factors, such as availability around your busy schedule & accommodation by the dentist & staff.
