Individual Dental Insurance

With Spirit Dental, you can find a plan that suits YOUR needs!

Taking care of your oral health is important at any age. But if you don’t have an insurance plan that covers checkups, cleanings, and various treatments and procedures that keep your teeth and gums in tip-top shape, you might be tempted to avoid seeing your dentist until absolutely necessary. Unfortunately, waiting until you’re in pain isn’t a good idea, as it usually indicates you have an advanced—and expensive to treat—problem.

At Spirit Dental, you can find individual insurance plans that suit your budget so you won’t have to break the bank to get the coverage you need. With the right level of coverage, you won’t have to sacrifice seeing the dentist regularly, and that means you can discover and treat problems in their earliest stages, when it’s less expensive and less painful to do so.

Remember, dental health is an important part of overall wellness, and failing to address minor problems today could lead to serious problems down the road. If you’ve ever been reluctant to see the dentist simply because of the costs, you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the plans we offer.

Prepare for the unexpected

Outstanding dental insurance does more than just cover the expected; it also covers the unexpected.

It’s one thing to schedule appointments for checkups or when you need to have your teeth examined because you’re experiencing symptoms, but you should also be prepared for those times when you might find yourself calling the dentist for an urgent need.

We know that the last thing you want to think about is a price tag when you need care right away. So, whether you chip a tooth, suffer a mouth injury while playing sports, or lose a tooth in an accident, you can head to your dentist for the treatment you need without having to worry about being able to pay for it.

Choose between our Choice and Network plans. Then start reaping the benefits of having insurance that has your back even when you weren’t expecting to need dental care.

Dental health and overall health: there’s a connection!

Just like you take good care of the rest of your body, it’s important to take care of your mouth. A lot of people don’t realize that there’s a connection between the health of your teeth and gums and the health of your entire system.

For example, problems in your mouth might lead to problems with your heart. On the flipside, certain medical conditions, such as diabetes, might increase the risk of developing oral health problems. And, as another example, severe infections that occur in the mouth from extensive tooth decay might travel through the bloodstream to other parts of the body.

Taking great care of your mouth is more affordable when you have the right individual dental insurance. And this is a smart step towards caring for your whole body because seeing a dentist for checkups can alert you to problems that have the potential of impacting other aspects of your health.

Individual dental insurance FAQ

What is the best dental insurance for individuals?

If you do not have dental insurance through an employer, you might be wondering which private dental insurance is best for individuals. When shopping in the individual market, look for the following features:

  • No waiting periods – many individual dental carriers will enforce a waiting period of 6 months to 12 months before your procedures are covered. Spirit Dental & Vision policies have no waiting periods on all procedures.
  • Coverage for implants and major services – some individual dental plans will exclude coverage for costly procedures like implants, crowns, bridges, and dentures.
  • High annual maximums – an annual maximum is the maximum benefit you can receive from the insurer.

Spirit Dental & Vision insurance plans are among the best insurance policies for individuals due to having no waiting periods, coverage for major services, and high annual maximums.

Can I buy dental insurance on my own?

Yes, you can! If you are above the age of 18, you can purchase private dental insurance that is separate from your medical insurance plan.

How much is dental insurance per month?

The price of your dental insurance will depend on many variables. On average, you can expect to pay anywhere from $20-$60 a month for individual PPO dental insurance policies. The price of individual dental insurance will vary based on your location (zip code), the type of plan you purchase, and the type of coverage you are looking for.

Is it worth getting dental insurance?

Having dental insurance pays off – Not only are you more likely to utilize preventive services, these preventive services are covered at 100%! Accessing annual cleanings and exams now prevents the need for costly major services, but in the case that you need them, you are covered. It’s a win-win.
