What “Out of Network” Means To You


Why out of network?

Medicine Wheel Dental made the decision 37 years ago to be an “out of network” dental provider for the good of our patients. Being out of network enables Medicine Wheel Dental to:

  • Work for our patients and not the insurance companies
  • Allow more time to understand the patients’ individual needs
  • Prepare integrative and comprehensive treatment plans
  • Allows utilization of high quality dental materials

Don’t be fooled by your insurance company!

Dental benefits typically max out in the range of $1,000.00 to $2,000.00 per year. This range has been minimally adjusted in the last 40 years, not keeping pace with inflation. When a dental office contracts with an insurance company, that office accepts the insurances companies rates, terms, and conditions. For that dental office, this means they must rely on volume of patients to keep their doors open for business. For our patients in our practice, it means the same amount of insurance benefits regardless of whether the doctor is in network or out of network.

Is this style of benefits right for you?

As long as you have an “out of network” option available on your policy, Medicine Wheel Dental will file all of the paperwork necessary for you to receive reimbursement of the benefits owed to you. Medicine Wheel Dental does this by collecting your insurance information and then filing a claim electronically which is the quickest form of claim submission available. Medicine Wheel Dental offers 12 month no interest rate payment plans as accommodation for the inconvenience this method of reimbursement may create. Every person is different and special in their own way so at Medicine Wheel we have created a practice built around this important awareness.
