Good dental health may be more important that you think. Studies have identified a link between oral health and chronic conditions such as heart disease. Lower your risk by keeping up with your preventive exams. Under the Anthem Dental Complete plan your diagnostic and preventive services such as teeth cleanings, periodic oral exam and bitewing X-rays are covered at 100 percent when using an in-network provider up to the maximum allowed amount. Other in-network services such as fillings, crowns and root canals are covered at 80 percent up to the maximum allowed amount.

Similar to the other medical plans, you can realize the greatest savings by going to an in-network dentist. While network dentist sign a contract with Anthem to limit fees, nonparticipating dentists do not have limits on the amount they can charge you for services. If you decide to go to a nonparticipating dentist, be sure you understand your potential out-of-pocket costs before you receive services.
