What does children’s dental insurance cover?

The exact type of coverage that your child may receive will depend on their unique dental plan. However, most children’s insurance plans cover the complete cost of biannual dental cleanings and exams, and many also cover fluoride treatments, dental sealants, and necessary restorative services like dental fillings. For specific information regarding your child’s benefits, we recommend contacting their provider directly.

Can I use LendingClub if my child has dental insurance?

Yes! LendingClub payment plans can be an excellent way to cover the cost of services that insurance does not cover or only offers partial coverage for. These interest-free plans help make dental care more affordable for both insured and uninsured patients alike, which is why we are happy to accept them.

What does Medicaid cover?

Like children’s insurance plans, Medicaid plans typically cover pediatric cleanings and dental exams as well as many restorative dental services that are deemed necessary for a patient. If you believe your child may qualify for Medicaid, we recommend applying, as Medicaid plans can make high-quality dental care much more accessible and affordable.
