Dr. Parker and his team are dedicated professionals that are always willing to go the extra mile in order to service patients better. We offer a comprehensive menu of dental services, treat patients young and old and we also provide exceptional customer service that includes accepting Cigna dental insurance. Please read on to find out how you get the most from your benefits with the Cigna dentist in Calimesa.
If you are fortunate to have Cigna dental insurance through work or an individual plan, then your benefits can make having preventive and restorative dentistry more affordable. In a way, having Cigna dental benefits is similar to membership in a club that gives you discounts on services you use regularly.
Your oral health is an important part of your overall well being. Therefore, Cigna dental insurance plans fully cover two examinations and cleanings each year, as well as one set of digital x-rays. If we spot a problem such as tooth decay or gum disease, then the restorative care necessary may be fully or partially covered depending on the details of your plan.
Dental insurance is a privilege you pay for with monthly or annual premium costs. Therefore, you should use your benefits to the fullest for the sake of your dental and oral health as well as your wallet.
There are really only a few things you need to do in order to make sure that you are receiving your maximum benefits.
First, know what your plan covers by understanding your benefits. You can contact your employer’s human resources department, a customer service representative at Cigna or the front office staff that work with Dr. Parker. We’ll be glad to answer your questions, which may include:
Although Dr. Parker and his team are ready when you need restorative care, we’d really prefer to help you and your family avoid the need for services such as tooth-colored fillings, dental crowns or dentures. That’s why we encourage all of our patients to stick to a schedule of having at least two dental cleanings and exams every year. A professional cleaning in combination with a thorough exam goes a long way toward ensuring your dental and oral health.
In addition, be sure to brush and floss you teeth at home, maintain a healthy diet and avoid excessive drinking and tobacco use for the sake of your health and your smile.
