At our dentist office, we understand that dental insurance can be confusing. However, we believe that no patient should have to forgo dental treatment because cost is a concern. We have insurance specialists at our practice with over 30 years of experience in helping our patients understand the best plan to maximize their benefits. We offer convenient financing vendors and payment options so that even the most advanced dentistry treatments are within the reach of each of our patients. We also make it a point to fully inform patients of the cost of treatment before we begin a procedure, so patients will never suffer “sticker shock” when they receive their bill. Most dental plans have deductibles, maximums, and various limitations, so please understand that while we do our best to keep up-to-date on your specific plan, unless you let us know when there are changes, we only have the information you provide us produce a close estimation of what your plan covers.

Insurance Affiliations

Ben Mandel DDS works with most of the following dental insurance:

  • Delta

* When our dental office accepts PPO insurance plans other than those above, we can often still work with the program and be listed as an “out of network” provider.
