Frequently Asked Questions

Does my dental insurance pay for an oral cancer screening?

Your medical and dental insurance benefits should not dictate the standard of care that you receive from your dental professional. This is especially important for screening procedures, such as the ViziLite Plus examination. Dentists that offer ViziLite Plus exams to their patients want their patients to receive the highest quality standard of care available. 

Dental Insurance might not cover this advanced oral cancer screening as an addition to the standard visual examination, but as a courtesy to our patients Baker Dental will file a claim with your dental insurance provider.  In the case that your dental insurance does not cover the exam, our office will provide you with a medical insurance form for you to file with your medical insurance carrier.
