Veterans are some of the most honorable people in our society. They’ve dedicated their lives, and in many instances, their health, to fight for the freedoms we have in our country. VA insurance, which includes dental care, is just one way that our government gives back to veterans. Dental care is essential to maintain healthy teeth and gums and overall health and wellness, which is why our Albertville dentists now accept VA patients needing dental care. Find out what that means for veterans.
If you’re a veteran needing to see a dentist, the first step to take is to contact the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs in Birmingham or call (205) 933-8101 extension 5848 to speak with a representative. Let the VA office know that you need a dentist in Albertville, and they will help set up an appointment for you. It’s important that you call the VA office in Birmingham, instead of our office directly, to set up an appointment.
How does VA insurance pay for my dental care?
VA insurance pays for your dental care. But first, we must submit a pre-treatment estimate to get approval before we provide services. In some cases, such as for preventive services or an exam, we can provide those services at the time of your appointment as the VA office will send an approval to us when scheduling your appointment. Our business staff will let you know whether your treatment requires pre-approval or not.
Now that you’re ready for your appointment, here’s what happens next. When you arrive at our Albertville dentist office, we will ask you to complete new patient paperwork for your file. Be sure to bring a photo I.D. with you. Once you’re ready to be called back, the dentist will speak with you about your dental health, any problems that you may have and conduct a thorough assessment of your teeth, which may also include x-rays. From there, a unique treatment plan will be designed to help you achieve your smile goals and improve your oral health.
Reasons to visit Wall Street Dentistry if you have VA insurance
Visiting Wall Street Dentistry instead of the main VA office in Birmingham for your dental care saves time. You won’t have to drive as far since our office is located in Albertville. For most patients, driving to the Birmingham VA clinic is over an hour or way. Plus, you’ll save on gas too, since you won’t have to drive as far to our office.
Pay nothing out-of-pocket
VA insurance pays 100% of dental treatments as long as they are pre-approved first. This means that VA insurance may cover preventive care, extractions, crowns, bridges, root canals, and dentures at no cost to the patient. Please remember, however, that you must initiate your appointment with the Birmingham VA office first, and our office will need to submit a pre-approval for treatment before you receive services.
