An “in-network” dentist is a dentist contracted with a specific dental insurance company to provide services to insurance plan members.
The benefit of having an insurance plan and visiting a dentist in their network is primarily for the dental rate discounts as previously negotiated between the insurance company and the dentist in Lafayette, California.
From the perspective of an insurance company, an “out-of-network” dentist is a dentist with whom the insurance company does not have a contract.
In most cases, if you visit a Lafayette dentist, like Dr. Victoria Dillingham, within the insurance company’s network, the amount you will be responsible for paying will be less than if you go to an out-of-network dentist in Lafayette. Though there are some exceptions, in many cases, the insurance company will either pay less or not reimburse any money you spent for dental services that you received from non-network dentists in Lafayette California.
Dr. Dillingham is contracted with a large number of insurance providers. However, even if you do not have dental insurance benefits, you will still want to contact us to schedule an appointment with Dr. Dillingham because her dental office offers convenient payment plans.
Even for those without the benefit of insurance.
If for some reason, your dental insurance policy is not listed here and you want to know, before your dentist appointment, if your dental charges will be considered “in network” by your dental insurance plan, then feel free to contact us.
If your dental plan is not listed, then there may a dental insurance problem. And we may still be able to schedule an appointment for you to address your dental needs.
