Using Your Dental Insurance at Day & Night Family Dental

Day & Night Family Dental will help you in any way we can to file your claim. Our staff will also handle all insurance questions on your behalf.

We have a few basic steps to our insurance process:

  1. Please provide us with details of your dental insurance when making your appointment. Bring the patient’s dental insurance card to your appointment.
  2. Please know and understand your insurance policy.
  3. It is helpful if Day & Night Family Dental is assigned to your insurance so we can quickly file claims on your behalf.
  4. Our staff will provide you with an estimate of your portion of out-of-pocket costs based on information you provide. Every insurance plan provides different levels of benefits based on the coverage your employer has provided. We will collect your estimated portion of out-of-pocket costs at the time of your appointment.
  5. After your appointment we will submit an insurance claim on your behalf for your visit. It typically takes 3-6 weeks for an insurance company to send us a payment.
  6. Your insurance company usually sends you an Explanation of Benefits (EOB), which provides you with all the details of a processed claim. At times, your insurance may not pay anything based on provisions in your plan.
  7. Once we have received payment from your insurance company we will provide you with a statement that summarizes any remaining balance that you are responsible for paying. If your insurance company denies payment for any reason, you will be responsible for all charges for your care.

If you need more information, please contact Day & Night Family Dental at 910-354-2680 or email

Replacement Clause – Protects the insurance company from paying to replace dentures, partials, bridges, etc., until a specified time limit has passed.

Waiting Period – The length of time an insurance company will make you wait (after your coverage starts) before they will pay for certain procedures.
