Dr. Benjamin accepts most major PPO insurance policies. Please bring your insurance card during your visit. Please remember that no insurance company attempts to cover all dental costs. Some companies pay fixed allowances for certain procedures and other pay a percentage of the charge. It is your responsibility to pay any deductible amount, coinsurance, or any other balance not paid for by your insurance company. We know questions can arise on insurance matters. We encourage you to discuss such questions with our business office staff.
In addition to insurance, we accept all major credit cards and care credit.

Interesting Facts from A to Z
We want the best for your teeth. That's why we have put some information together here to help you the next time you visit our practice. It can also help you understand more about prevention and other dentistry topics.
Preventative care: At least every 6 months
If you take special care of your teeth and they are in good condition, you should come to see us for a checkup at least twice a year. If your teeth are predisposed to problems, you should be on the safe side and make an appointment for preventative care regularly.
Our tip: Come in for a consultation and make the next appointment after each visit.
Start 'em early
Proper oral hygiene habits are learned early. As soon as your toddler can manage a toothbrush (24-30 months), supervised brushing instructions can create beneficial habits that last a lifetime. Remember, children under 6 should be supervised at all times as swallowing toothpaste can be harmful.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends a first dentist visit by the age of 1 or within 6 months after his or her first tooth comes in. Establishing regular visits at a young age has proven to improve the health and stability of adult teeth.
