It’s easier than ever to maintain optimal oral health because you have dental insurance with Delta Dental.

Dr. Friedland is a Delta Dental dentist in Pembroke Pines for personalized, affordable care. We’ll help you reach your oral health goals while reducing the amount you pay out-of-pocket.
Dental insurance differs from medical coverage because there are yearly limits and maximums. By paying your monthly premiums, you have access to a variety of services at discounted rates. Although every policy differs, here’s what your benefits may include:
Your coverage focuses on stopping oral health issues before they start because research shows every $1 spent on prevention can save as much as $50 on restorative and emergency care. You can visit your dentist 1-2 times per year for the cleanings and checkups your teeth and gums rely on. If a complication arises, Delta Dental is there for you. After reaching your yearly deductible, you can use your coverage to offset the amount you pay. While every policy is unique, most plans have an annual limit of $1,000 to $2,000.
If you don’t use all your benefits before the end of the year, they will expire. You won’t be reimbursed for anything you don’t use, and nothing will accumulate into the following year. Less than 3% of Americans reach or exceed their annual limits. We don’t want to see you throw money down the drain.
To make the most of your insurance, Delta Dental in Pembroke Pines recommends you choose a dentist that’s in your network. Dr. Friedland has pre-negotiated rates with the insurance carrier to lower your out-of-pocket expenses. You can still visit a dentist who isn’t in your network, but you’ll need to pay the difference between your insurance’s allowable amounts and their office’s fees. We work with both in-network and out-of-network patients to keep our services within your budget.
