Help! I Don’t Understand my Dental Insurance

It’s probably no surprise that in our complicated world of health care, dental insurance can often be just as confusing as a medical policy. Plus as dental technology continues to provide new cutting edge procedures for preventative, basic and major dental care insurance policies are constantly evolving. We here at Ellis Dental work vigilantly to stay in the know on the ever changing rules and regulations when it comes to dental insurance and to ensure our patients are able to take full advantage of all their benefits. We work with all dental insurance policies and will always file on your behalf. As many of you know, dental insurance, just as medical insurance, offers different benefits and pricing structures depending if you visit a provider within their particular network. Ellis Dental currently is an in-network provider for several dental insurance plans including Delta Dental Premier, United Healthcare and Cigna.

Medical insurance is the only insurance individuals are required to have under the current Affordable Care Act and we understand not everyone is offered dental insurance through their employers. That’s why we do have available an in-house dental plan as well as other financing options. One of our most popular financing options is Care Credit. This program can be applied for here at our office or in the privacy of your own home online at Any questions or concerns you may have when it comes to dental insurance or financing options, please feel free to contact our financial coordinator, Nancy Bernabe, today for assistance. You can reach her via email at or call her during regular business hours at 314-965-1334.

Ellis Dental understands while the economic climate is slowly improving, many families are still struggling. If the only thing standing between you and quality dental care is your bank balance, please contact us today and let’s talk.
