Insurance Providers

Investing in dental insurance for your child is an important ingredient in helping them achieve and maintain a happy, healthy smile that lasts a lifetime. Kids are eligible for the same preventive and restorative dental treatments as you are — and maybe even more. If your little one is covered by Delta Dental insurance, keep reading to find out how the team at Park Place Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics can help you maximize your investment to protect your favorite growing smile!

Children’s Dental Insurance

Your little one’s smile has different needs from your own. His or her tooth enamel will not have fully hardened until age 14 or so, and until that time it will be more vulnerable to tooth decay. Helping your little one brush, floss, and maintain healthy eating habits can help them steer clear of cavities — and so can taking advantage of their Delta Dental coverage by visiting the dentist every six months.

Your child’s coverage includes two free checkups and cleanings per year (just like your own) and often access to dental sealants and topical fluoride treatments as well. These preventive treatments significantly aid in cavity-protection for growing smiles, which makes them well worth the coverage cost for Delta Dental and other insurance providers.

If your little one requires restorative dental care at some point during childhood, like for a cavity or dental injury, you can expect Delta Dental to cover from 50% to 80% of the bill. You will simply pay the amount you owe at the time of your child’s appointment — we will file the claim and receive the full payment later on. That’s a big advantage of visiting an in-network dentist as opposed to one who is out-of-network, which will often require you to pay fees out of pocket and wait for reimbursement to come weeks or months later.

Insurance Coverage Helps Build Healthy Smiles

The benefits of insuring your child’s smile with Delta Dental or any other insurance plan are many, and they include the following:

  • Preventive coverage helps your little one steer clear of cavities, gum disease, and other oral health hazards that can have an impact on their overall smile health.
  • Early detection aids in the easiest, most conservative treatment of any existing issues.
  • Positive experiences at the dentist from a young age help to put your little one on the road to a lifetime of regular dental care.
  • Orthodontic issues caught at an early age through regular preventive care can reduce future treatment times with braces or eliminate the need for them altogether.
  • There are no claims forms to fill out or reimbursements to wait for when you visit an in-network dentist.
