Garland area dentist takes Medicaid coverage for dental visitsWhen asked why routine dental care has not been done, patients who fail to make their regular appointments often state that it is the cost of treatment that keeps them from visiting the dentist. Dr. Vidya Suri of Kings Dental in Garland believes that patients should be able to access affordable dental care treatments to enjoy preventative services thus reducing the likelihood of dental issues down the road. Patients who have Medicaid coverage through the state are welcome to visit our practice for treatments.
Medicaid is a type of medical and dental insurance coverage that will provide patients with reduced or free dental care. This is often extended to patients who do not have the appropriate level of income to obtain dental insurance on their own. When Medicaid coverage is applied to dental work in our office, it will either reduce the out-of-pocket expense or eliminate it altogether. This will depend on the type of Medicaid coverage provided for that particular patient and their family.
Dr. Vidya Suri is proud to accept Medicaid as a type of dental insurance in her practice to help patients get the preventive and necessary care for their smiles. Medicaid will not cover elective, cosmetic procedures; such as porcelain veneers or composite resin bonding, but can be used to address cavities, periodontal disease, and to provide proactive care through cleanings and examinations. Patients who are unsure as to what their dental Medicaid will provide are more than welcome to speak with our front office staff to help determine the best possible treatments under this insurance plan. Medicaid is billed for the initial treatment and any remaining balance will be the responsibility of the patient. If needed, we can provide payment financing to help reduce the burden of expensive dental bills.
If you and your family reside in the Garland, Texas community or the surrounding area and have Medicaid coverage for your smile, visit the practice of Kings Dental to enjoy treatment and acceptance of this dental coverage. We can discuss with patients other payment options if needed to help in addressing the gap between full cost and Medicaid if necessary.
