See Your Aetna Dentist in Circle Pines for a Healthy Smile

Smiling familyIs your dental coverage with Aetna dental insurance? Then you really should see the dentists at Circle Pines Dental. Why? Because Dr. Stentz and Dr. Shaffer are in-network with Aetna. This means you’ll be able to take care of your family members’ smiles and save some money, too. Now that’s a good combination! We want to be your Aetna dentist in Circle Pines.

The Ins and Outs of an In-Network Dentist

Dentist and patientWhen you select an Aetna Dental provider in Circles Pines, you will benefit the most from dental insurance. This is why: we have already negotiated with Aetna to set established fees for covered services. These fees are contractually set so once you’ve paid your portion, we cannot bill you any additional charge.

Aetna Dental Insurance Plans

Close up smile

Aetna offers four different types of plans. Regardless of which one you have, they are all designed to provide cost savings on the dental care you need annually. The plans are:

  • Network Only Dental Plans or Dental Maintenance Organization (DMO®)
  • Network Option Dental Plans or Preferred Provider Organization (PPO)
  • Dental Indemnity Plan
  • Hybrid Dental Plans

We’re very familiar with all of the Aetna plans. Therefore, if you have any questions about your coverage, please call or ask the next time you’re in the office.

Also, as an Aetna in-network dentist in Circle Pines, we’ll file all of your claims to ensure that you receive the maximum allowable benefit for any covered procedure. With an out-of-network provider, you will probably need to pay the full amount for treatment and submit your own claim forms for reimbursement.

Your Dental Insurance Dictionary

While the details of each Aetna Dental plan may vary, most have a few things in common. Here are some insurance terms that are important to know and understand:

Premium: The amount of money you must pay--once a month or annually—for the privilege of having dental insurance coverage.

Deductible: This is the dollar amount you must pay out-of pocket before Aetna begins to pay for your dental care. Coverage begins only after you’ve satisfied your deductible.

Maximum: This is the total amount that is set by Aetna or your employer that your plan will cover in a year. If you require extensive dental care, our dentist will do their best to schedule treatments from one year to the next, so you don’t exceed the maximum in any single year.

Smile More with Aetna Dental

Regardless of your dental insurance in Circle Pines, your benefits will likely cover preventive care such as dental cleanings and exams and annual x-rays. In addition, several restorative treatments are also included such as tooth-colored fillings, dental crowns and even dentures.
