We work with most insurance plans to help our patients achieve optimal oral health. However, Dr. Mahlin is not a member of any “network.” Here is why:
Dental insurance plans offer a package of covered benefits. Your needs may or may not be covered. Dr. Mahlin's responsibility is to work for you and in your best interest. Dr. Mahlin does not work for the insurance company.
As an educated consumer, you must be very careful; there are dental offices that do not explain all of your treatment options because the insurance does not pay for some of those options. This, in Dr. Mahlin's opinion, is wrong. We believe that all options, and the advantages and disadvantages of each, must be fully explained to our patients. Then you can decide which course of action is right for you.
Typically, there are two types of dental insurance:
- You must see a participating "in-network" dentist in order for your insurance to pay.
- You can go to any dentist you choose, whether "in" or "out" of network and your insurance will pay.
Whether they have insurance or not, our patients tell us they come to our office because they wouldn’t want to go anywhere else.
