Dentists in Tijuana that accept American Insurance

sofdental dentista en tijuana aseguranza usa

Dental insurance and plans between the U.S.-Mexico border and the United States are known through insurance companies. Since there are a large number of people who cross the border into Mexico in order to receive specialized dental care.

Is it safe to travel to Tijuana for dental treatment? Yes, and due to the high demand and supply of dental treatments, the list of dentists in Tijuana that accept American insurance continues to grow every day.

In fact, such is the commitment and profitability of this payment system that many Americans even venture across the Tijuana border without a passport.

To learn more about dental treatment insurance, continue reading this article.


How does American dental insurance work?

Dental insurance works similarly to health insurance:

  • The customer pays a premium
  • The clinic will probably ask for a co-payment to insure the service and to cover expenses
  • The practice will proceed to bill the insurance company directly for the service provided.

Please note that most preventive care visits, which include cleaning and checkups, are covered by a dental insurance plan. Should you have to undergo a different dental procedure, i.e., one that is not considered preventive care, the clinic will bill your insurance company.

And according to the corresponding plan, the dentist will charge only for the procedure or the percentage of the treatment that the insurance did not cover. In any case, everything will depend on the plans and agreements offered by the dental insurance in question.

Does insurance pay for all dental procedures?

No, the insurances only cover clinical procedures that include restorations with the objective of recovering and optimizing the functionality of the dental pieces.

Therefore, they do not pay for cosmetic procedures, such as veneers or crown restorations for worn parts.

Do you cover orthodontic services?

Yes, most insurance companies include an additional policy for orthodontics.

What is the advantage of dental insurance?

American insurances are secure institutions that facilitate access to health services, such as dental treatment. For many cross-border dental providers, they represent their primary income and thus a means of trusting additional insights that boost economic momentum.

The additional documentation and time required to offer and verify benefits are, moreover, inconsequential. The idea is to expedite procedures in favor of the patient in order to verify that there is coverage as stipulated in the previous contract.

In other words, they are an effective means of protecting users against risks. They can thus provide:

  • Affordable preventive dental care plans
  • Cost-effective out-of-pocket costs for non-preventive dental care
  • Specialized service with no waiting lists.
