NYC dentist shares the difference between medical and dental insurance  

Comparing Medical & Dental Insurance Benefits


Tomato, tomahto. Potato, potahto. Medical, dental. What’s the difference? Should we just call the whole thing off?

The truth is, dentists and doctors care for you in different ways, and dental and medical plans are designed to work differently.

Medical Benefits


FOCUS: Unexpected Care

Medical insurance focuses more on covering consequences of injury and illness after they happen.

And because medical care can be quite costly, medical coverage is designed to protect you from the burden of large expenses.

Dental Benefits


FOCUS: Preventive Care

Dental benefits are all about stopping problems before they begin. Dental insurance is designed to cover some of the costs associated with your preventive dental care.

Routine dental care, like regular checkups and cleanings, are key to a healthy smile.

Many people don’t realize that regular dentist visits can help avoid costly and painful dental problems down the road. In fact, cavities are almost 100% preventable.

An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Take Ben Franklin’s advice and use your preventive dental benefits!
