Congrats on getting dental insurance! You’re taking the first step to improving and maintaining good oral and overall health.
Now that you have your new plan, what are your next steps? We break it down:
Step 1: Know your coverage.
Every plan is different, so take the time to understand the specifics. Know what is (and isn’t) covered. Learn if you have a waiting period. Estimate what your expenses could be at each appointment (See Step 3).

Step 2: Find a network dentist.
You are free to see any dentist you choose, but you’ll have the lowest out-of-pocket savings when you see a dentist that accepts your insurance plan. Find an in-network dentist near you, by using our search here.
Step 3: Estimate your costs.
If you think you’ll need a procedure that may require an additional expense, ask your dentist to submit a pre-treatment estimate. Knowing your financial responsibility beforehand can help you budget for extra costs.
After your appointment, you’ll receive an Explanation of Benefits (EOB). Review it so you understand what was covered vs. what you owe.
