How Metlife Makes Dentistry More Affordable

Are you covered by MetLife dental insurance? Whether you obtained your policy independently or through your employer, it's important to make the most of it. This valuable resource can safeguard your oral health and provide financial assistance for any necessary restorative treatments. To ensure you're getting the most out of your policy, our team is pleased to be in-network with MetLife dental insurance. We specialize in helping patients maximize their benefits.

Metlife Coverage Availability & Fees

MetLife offers a variety of insurance plans, with PPO and DHMO plans being the most popular. While DHMO plans require you to see a specific dentist, PPO policies allow you to visit any dentist and still receive benefits. Below is a general explanation of how PPO coverage typically functions.
  • Preventive care (cleanings, X-rays, etc.): Coverage between 80% - 100%
  • Minor restorative care (fillings, simple extractions, etc.): Coverage between 70% - 80%
  • Major services (crowns and other extensive treatments): 50% coverage
  • Specialty services (orthodontics, dental implants, etc.): Coverage varies depending on the specific policy

Please note that visiting an in-network MetLife dentist in Richardson may result in greater coverage rates compared to out-of-network practices. Our contract with MetLife allows both the insurance company and our patients to save money. Our experience working with MetLife puts us in the best position to help you understand and maximize your policy benefits.

For instance, we can help you schedule treatments in a way that allows you to fully utilize your annual maximum. By spreading out major services across multiple appointments between calendar years, patients in need of extensive treatment can take advantage of two annual maximums instead of just one.
