We Accept Insurance
Many patients do not have dental coverage. However, if you have dental insurance, Dr. Griffin is a preferred provider on most dental plans. We will file your claim for you, and you will only pay for the portion of your dental visit that your insurance benefit does not cover.
Dr. Griffin provides all his patients with the same quality of care. Rather than compromise quality, Dr. Griffin is committed to providing the best materials, maintaining a highly qualified team and using state-of-the-art equipment so his patients can get the exceptional care they deserve. We are thankful that you have a dental plan and will do our best to maximize your benefits and make any remaining balance easily affordable. To discuss your payment options or insurance coverage, please call us today at 972-242-2155.
About Dental Insurance
As you decide which dentist to choose, there are a few things about dental insurance that we want you to know.
First: Dental insurance assists you in obtaining dental treatment, it is not a pay all; it is an aid.
Second: Your plan is a contract between your employer and the insurance company. The amount your plan pays is determined by how much your employer paid for the plan. The less they paid for insurance, the less insurance you’ll receive. Therefore, when your plan states it will cover 80% or 100% of the service rendered, your plan may only actually pay 60-80% of an “out of network” dentist’s actual fee. As a service to his patients, Dr. Griffin is an “in-network” provider with most dental insurance plans.
Third: The fact is dental insurance over the years has not kept up with inflation. In the 1970′s there was an average yearly maximum coverage of $1,000 per year, which would cover many dental services. Now over 40 years later, the average yearly maximum is still $1,000, which doesn’t pay for much more than one porcelain crown. Unfortunately even though your premiums have inflated the annual benefit has not.
