Insurance Information

Navigating the ever changing landscape of insurance can be a frustrating adventure. Your friends at Mint are here to help you.

Mint Dental Works is in network with Delta Dental Premier & United Concordia Elite insurance plans, but we accept most dental insurance plans that permit you to go out of network. We work diligently to assist you in maximizing your benefits, but it is important that our patients are educated about the limitations of their insurance. Most people struggle to understand that dental insurance operates very differently than medical and auto insurance policies. These types of insurance cover the expenses of unexpected occurrences, not routine events for which you can plan. Dental insurance, in contrast, emphasizes coverage for routine services (exams and cleanings) and offers little coverage and sometimes no coverage for treatment. You can expect the carrier to reimburse a specific percentage of your treatment fee. Generally speaking, the higher the premium, the higher the reimbursement. Insurance companies do not guarantee payment on claims and reserve the right to make payments based on their contract guidelines as well as the estimation of “Usual and Customary Rates.”

Any verbal information obtained from your insurance carrier is not a guarantee of benefit payment. Each insurance plan is unique and coverage is subject to numerous factors including: eligibility on the date services are performed, plan limitations and/or exclusions, plan maximums, and deductibles. While we call to verify your initial eligibility and benefits with your insurance carrier, we recommend that the patient reviews their benefit coverage with the insurance company. It is also the patient’s responsibility to alert our office if there are any changes to insurance coverage prior to treatment. As a courtesy to our patients, we will assist you and do our best to obtain reimbursement from your insurance for any service performed. However, the patient is ultimately responsible for ALL fees regardless of insurance coverage.

If you have additional questions about your benefits please don’t hesitate to talk to our insurance coordinator.

Great service and great care!

I have been going to Mint for years now and have nothing but great things to say! I never feel like I am being taken advantage of (a problem that was recurring in my dental past), everything is thoroughly explained, and everyone is very patient. Hilde and Scarlett are just the best, always kind, fun to joke around with, and very aware that being at the dentist is not a favorite place for most people. Dr. McMillan is also great and I always feel like he is doing the best for me, not the best for his wallet. Prices are very reasonable and even if something seems like it's a little extra, I don't mind paying that at all for the care I receive. I can't recommend Mint enough!

You guys are great

You take good care of my teeth. I trust you. I love the work Dr McMillan did on my front teeth to make them look so lovely and yet natural. I believe that is called cosmetic dentistry. I have recommended you – no second thoughts on that!! Roberta B., 05/18/17 (Published on RateABiz)

Very friendly staff, immaculately clean office, state of the art equipment, eco-friendly environment, able to handle mercury removal, easy to schedule, never a long wait time, and... Netflix to keep you entertained while they do their thing – because you can never watch the same Star Trek movies over and over quite enough. The Dentists, Dental Assistant Anna and Hygienist Kellie are awesome people and dental artisans who make every visit a pleasure. I highly recommend them! Dave M. 02/14/17 (Published on RateABiz)

THANK YOU VERY-VERY MUCH for taking care of me and making this trip to Portland and my vacation, one of the best experiences I have ever had. J. Stava

My favorite dentist I’ve ever been to!

I've never liked a dentist practice enough to say much about it before. That was until I started coming to Mint Dental. I really can't express how great they are. The staff is awesome, the place is clean and nice and did I mention they have vibrating chairs and warm neck pillows? They make going to the dentist not so bad. I highly recommend!
