BETTER ORAL HEALTH LEADS TO BETTER OVERALL HEALTH
Oral health and overall health are connected, and dentists are in a unique position to detect more than 120 signs and symptoms of nondental diseases—including diabetes and heart disease—through patient examination.1,2 In many cases, extra cleanings can be beneficial to certain medical conditions, which is why our dental plan options include enhanced periodontal coverage for individuals with chronic and/or high-risk medical conditions like diabetes or coronary artery disease. Also, included in the plan designs is an OralCDx BrushTest® for oral cancer screening.
SAVE MORE WITH RENAISSANCE!
Routine dental visits have become an extremely important part of good health maintenance. The dental plan offering helps to remove financial barriers to oral health services and promotes preventive care so that small problems do not become painful, expensive ones.
For example: A dentist may submit a $950 charge for a crown. With dental insurance, the in-network dentist accepts a reduced fee of $744. That's an immediate savings of $206! Furthermore, having dental insurance means your insurance pays a percentage from the reduced fee so you can see how the advantages of dental coverage can add up quickly.
The payment example above is for illustration purposes only. Fees and reimbursements can vary by location and dentist. It does however represent how the payment is determined.
PREVENTIVE CARE NOW CAN HELP YOU SAVE MONEY LATER.
Preventive dental care can keep you and your smile healthy long-term, and can save you money by protecting you from more expensive procedures.

As an example, say you have met your deductible and visit your dentist for a basic covered service. If the estimated charge of $120 is covered at 80 percent, here’s the out-of-pocket cost of using an in-network versus out-of-network dentist:
