COVID-19 Safety Message: Visit our practice with confidence – your safety is our top concern.
We’ve reopened in accordance with CDC, O.S.H.A., and State Dental Board guidelines to responsibly resume seeing our patients for regular dental appointments and treatment.

We Accept Dental Insurance Plans in Springfield
Employee-sponsored dental benefits are widespread, with most plans having both the employer and employee contribute to the cost. At Gentle Dental of Springfield, we see our patients benefit from the savings everyday. Since some employers contribute more than others, we have patients using plans from the same insurance company, who pay different co-pays for fillings and other procedures. No matter how much an employer contributes, people view dental insurance as a highly valued benefit.
How Do I Find an Affordable Dentist Near Me Who Accepts My Insurance?
When you ask your benefits manager, “Can you help me find a dentist in Springfield by insurance plan?” you can expect him or her to point you to a dentist in the same zip code. However, the dentist’s fees are just as important as their location. We do our best to keep our fees affordable, which is important since you may have a copay for services depending on your coverage. When you search for a dentist near me who accepts my insurance, remember, we accept many plans and we will file claims on your behalf. Contact us today to ensure we accept your dental plan.
You will need to locate a dentist that accepts PPO insurance in your network for a discount or a dentist that accepts HMO insurance from a specific list to be your primary dentist. While there are a few other types of dental plans available, PPO and HMO plans are the most common. With PPO plans, you do not need a referral to see a specialist, with HMO plans you need a referral to see an orthodontist, a periodontist or other dental specialist. Our staff can answer the commonly asked question, Can you teach me about how to use my dental insurance with a dentist in Springfield?”
How Do I Maximize My Dental Plan Benefits?
One way to maximize your benefits is use the underutilized benefits, such as teeth cleanings and children’s fluoride treatments. Once you find a dentist in Springfield by insurance, take advantage of your plan’s savings opportunities, especially preventative and diagnostic care. It helps to know all of your plans benefits, and its exclusions, first. Review your benefits or call your insurance company directly and ask:
- Which dentist takes my insurance?
- Are exams and x-rays covered in full?
- What is my deductible?
- Do I have a maximum annual benefit amount?
- Does my dental insurance cover braces for adults?
- Does my dental insurance cover crowns?
- Will dental insurance pay for an implant?
- Will my dental insurance pay for a new bridge if mine is broken?
- How are requests for upgraded materials handled?
