Your Memorial Houston MetLife Dental Insurance Provider

Man reviewing his dental insurance Sadly, the majority of people in the US do not have insurance coverage for dental care. If you’re one of the few who have access to this coverage and you choose to invest in dental insurance, the caring dentistry team at the Houston dental office of Terrence C. O’Keefe, DDS is here to help you make the most of your benefits. We work with patients and dental insurance providers on a regular basis to help them receive the maximum amount coverage for all their necessary dental services. If you’re new to the area or looking for a new dental office to call home, give our team a call. We’ll process and file your dental insurance claims and work with you to achieve your healthiest smile and keep it for life. If you don’t have dental insurance, our treatment is affordable, and we are happy to work with CareCredit to provide low and no interest payment plans.

Dental Insurance & Preventive Dentistry

Woman surrounded by question marksAll dental insurance plans are unique contracts between a patient, their employer, and a benefit provider. However, the majority of benefit plans place an emphasis on prevention, offering the greatest amount of coverage for these treatments. By visiting our team every six months for dental checkups and professional teeth cleanings, you’ll avoid advanced dental damage and decay, and allow our team to partner with you to provide early diagnosis and conservative dental care. Preventive and conservative treatments receive a greater amount of coverage from your MetLife benefits, and these regular appointments help you avoid advanced treatments that receive lower coverage percentages. Visiting our team every six months is the easiest way to maximize your dental insurance coverage and avoid high out of pocket dental treatment costs.

Maximizing Your MetLife Insurance Coverage

Patient calculating insuranceIf you’re one of our many patients with MetLife dental insurance, we’ll be happy to process and file your claims to help you maximize coverage. We work with MetLife regularly, and we can help you get the treatments you need within your budget. The first step to ensuring you receive the maximum benefit from your treatment plan is to walk you through your unique coverage. Some of the questions we’ll want to ask include:

  • Who is covered by your plan? Just you, spouse, children, etc.
  • What treatments are covered? What percentage of treatment cost does my insurance pay? What percentage am I responsible for out of pocket?
  • Is there a maximum coverage amount my plan will pay out each year?
  • Do I have a deductible?
