Dental Insurance

Solution for patients who don't have dental insurance

No dental insurance? We have the solution!

As a dental office in Orange, CT, we participate or “take” most dental insurance plans. For those patients who do not have dental insurance, we offer an in-office membership plan called the Calcaterra Family Dentistry Gold Plan.  Between our participation with multiple plans and our solution for patients without insurance, we can make dental care affordable for everyone.

For patients with insurance, we frequently get the following question:

How will you work with my insurance to maximize my benefits?

Prior to your visit, our Business Manager Jenn or Administrator Carla will contact your insurance company to find out how you can use your insurance benefits. We do this routinely so that there are no financial surprises. So you can rest assured that we will never do treatment until you know exactly what your financial commitments are.
