Dental insurance makes it much easier for families and individuals to get the treatments you need to maintain long-term oral health and make it easy to show off your smile. Our dental office is in-network with most PPO dental insurance plans, so chances are if you have dental insurance, our dental office accepts it! We’re more than happy to help you navigate your plan and confirm that you’re maximizing all available benefits. To help you understand the basics of dental insurance a bit better, our dentists have included a brief section on what most plans cover, regardless of your provider.

For you and your family’s convenience, La Prada Family Dentistry is in-network with most dental PPO plans. By working with a wide variety of insurers, we hope that paying for your dental care is more manageable and accommodating than what you’d typically expect with a dental office. These providers include:
By being in-network, our dental office has agreed to a series of predetermined fees for specific services. In most cases, this fee is lower than what you’d pay if you were out-of-network. Additionally, we are one of few dental offices to accept Medicaid benefits for children in need of dental care, as part of our commitment to better-serving families in Garland and the surrounding areas.
