We are insurance friendly and accept all PPO insurance.
Dental insurance does not cover 100% of the cost of dental care. Most plans include a deductible and other expenses which must be paid by the patient at the time of services. Reimbursement amounts are not a guideline for quality care. You will receive treatment recommendations based on your individual oral health care needs not your insurance reimbursement rates.
Dental Doctors of Florida can file most insurance claims for you. Please bring your insurance plan information and identification with you on each visit. We will work with you to ensure that you receive the maximum benefits to which you are entitled.
