Even though our team goes out of its way to make the dental experience as fun and enjoyable as possible, we haven’t forgotten what’s important: making sure that our care is easily affordable. That’s why Avion Dental & Orthodontics is in-network with several insurance providers. If you have any kind of dental coverage, be sure to read our short guide below on how to use your benefits every time you come to see us.
Whether your dental insurance comes from your employer, a private plan, or is state-sponsored, they all tend to have the same focus: prevention. While regular health insurance is designed to help people deal with unexpected medical issues (car wreck, heart attack), dental insurance is instead intended to help people avoid common oral issues or take care of them early. Over time, this leads to better oral health and less spent on care, which is a big win-win for policyholders.

The provider then covers part of these fees. Going to an in-network dentist is one of the easiest ways to get the most out of your plan, and fortunately for local families, we are in-network with many well-known providers…
