What does out-of-network mean?

Out-of-network is a term invented by insurance companies to describe dental practices that do not agree to their specific terms and conditions.

We are in-network for most Delta Dental plans. That means we agree to accept the payments from Delta Dental according to their fee schedule. They look at fees from all dental offices in our area, including chain clinics and corporate practices, and determine a compensation for each service that dentists provide.

We choose to remain out-of-network with many other insurance plans because the payments that they deem fair would cause us to have to cut corners with our patients, which is something we don’t want to do when it comes to your health! We provide above-average dentistry and above-average service while still keeping our fees reasonable and competitive for our area.

Decisions about your dentistry should be between Dr. Canepa and you. Our philosophy is that we will always recommend the treatment options that will best support your health and you can always choose to have some, all, or none of the treatment, because your health is up to you!

Even if we are out-of-network for your particular dental plan, we will still work with you to maximize your benefits, bill your insurance company for you, and provide you with the outstanding dental care you deserve in a caring and professional environment.
