Ah, dental insurance. The good news is you have it. The bad new is… you have it. Most dental insurance plans have a list of their in-network dental providers. If subscribers want to pay less, then they must see a dentist who is in-network on their plan. Thus, dentistry may be more affordable, but the final decision about your dental care may be determined by a faceless entity at the insurance company rather than you and your dentist. Owings Mills dentist Dr. Monica Mattson is not an in-network provider. This means that your insurance will not predict your treatment. Rather, your treatment is based upon Dr. Mattson’s careful evaluation of your dental and oral health. Then the two of you decide upon a treatment plan that works for your budget and schedule.

When you need Owings Mills general dentistry to keep your smile clean, healthy, and beautiful, the friendly staff at Diamond Dental is here to help you get the smile you desire, but did you know that the time you spend caring for your teeth now could save your life later? According to Dr. Joan Otomoa-Corgel, president of the American Academy of Periodontology, periodontal disease effects half of US adults. That’s more than twice the number affected by diabetes annually, and gum disease is linked to kidney disease, heart disease, stroke, alzheimer’s and diabetes. Actually, many patients first discover they suffer from diabetes while they are being treated for periodontal disease. The research based support for the connection between gum disease and various chronic illnesses grows annually, and it seems only a matter of time before medical researchers discover the exact causal relationships. At Diamond Dental of Owings Mills, our dentistry team is here to help you achieve and maintain optimal oral health for a lifetime. Best of all, we may just be adding years to that life in the process. Call to find out more or to schedule an appointment with your Owings Mills general dentist today.
