Insurance and Financing

Discover Our Flexible Insurance and Financing Options

At See Me Smile Dental, we believe everyone should be entitled to the highest quality dental care. That's why we provide a range of financing and payment options to suit each individual patient's needs.

With the variety of options we have to offer, we are sure that we can find one that works for most situations. Our team is also on hand to walk through these options with you, so you can feel confident that your dental care is going to work for you and your budget.

Our Accepted Insurance Plans

We are pleased to say that we accept all Preferred Provider Organization (PPO) plans and that we support the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU).

We are sorry, but we do not accept Medi-Cal, DentiCal, or HMO.

What's Covered by Your Dental Insurance?

Dental insurance can be incredibly complicated. It will often cover a specific amount of your dental care and may not provide full coverage. This means it's possible that you will have some kind of expense to pay at the time of your treatment.

If you aren't sure what your dental insurance covers, we highly recommend checking it on your provider's website. Or, you can simply bring your insurance documents along with you to your appointment so we can verify the type of coverage you have and speak to your provider for you.

What Are Covered Benefits and Optional Treatments?

Your insurance plan may detail "covered benefits" and "optional treatments." The former are those that are often recommended for oral health and will be included in your plan's fee schedule. These are often treatments that help repair teeth and/or treat oral conditions, i.e. gum disease.

Optional treatments, however, are deemed "cosmetic." These may not be covered as they aren't seen to be essential. This may include things like teeth whitening and veneers.

Financing Options Tailored to You

We understand that dental procedures aren't always carefully planned. Therefore, when the unexpected happens, we make sure our patients can cover the costs of their emergency dental care quickly, easily, and hassle-free.

We also know that the cost of individual dental care plans can vary dramatically depending on the results required, the treatment chosen, and your unique oral health needs. Our team offers an approximate estimate of your treatment before you go ahead so you know exactly where you are from the get-go. We can even discuss this with your insurance provider if required.

As well as the aforementioned insurance plans, our dental office accepts most major debit and credit cards, checks, or cash - or a mixture of these. We also provide some financing options that can help you plan your treatment and work with your budget accordingly.

A Treatment Plan You Can Trust

It is important to remember that the type of insurance you have (or don't have) doesn't determine or guide the quality of treatments and care you receive.
