Your Dental Insurance: Understanding The Maze of Codes, Copays, and Participation in Philadelphia By Kelly D'Orazio on November 29, 2011

As Specialists in the Field of Endodontics (root canal treatment),  Dr. Hodges and his associate solely perform endodontic procedures on their patients; therefore, they are able to tell you exactly what your insurance will pay for your services.  Upon calling our Philadelphia dental office, our staff will ask for basic patient information and several insurance questions.  We will then call your dental insurance company for you to find out your co-pay.  We know the right questions to ask so you will know ahead of time exactly how much you will owe at the time of your visit.  If you do not have dental insurance or have a rather high co-pay we have payment options available to you. 


Many patients are confused over the insurance jargon such as "usual and customary fees'" and most do not know that the dental insurance payment to a Philadelphia dentist depends on his zip code! The dental insurance game can be very tricky and Dr. Hodges and his staff calculate your copay before you even step in the door.  There are no surprises when you are done your visit.  You know exactly how much your insurance will pay and how much is your responsibility.   We will submit your dental claim electronically to your insurance carrier.  You will find our dental insurance procedures to be seamless and efficient.!

Dr. Hodges and his staff want to make your visit to Associated Endodontists in Philadelphia as painless as possible:  No pain in your mouth and no pain in your pocket!
