Tip of the Week

Looking for an affordable dental insurance policy that offers the greatest variety of dentists?

Some dental plans may have few dentists convenient to where you live so, if you are shopping around for affordable dental insurance, it is important to know whether you'll be able to receive treatment under your new plan by a good, local dentist.

A managed health care dental plan, such as a PPO plan, comes with a list of dentists that will treat you under that plan. The lists associated with most managed health care plans will probably be more extensive than those associated with HMO policies, as dentists must often treat HMO-covered patients at a loss according to the American Dental Association. Therefore, if you cannot afford a PPO, you might have better luck finding a local dentist if you're covered by a discount dental plan rather than an HMO.
