We Participate With Aetna Dental Insurance

Dentist who takes or participates with Aetna Dental Insurance

We are in network with Aetna Dental Insurance.

Are you looking for a dental office that accepts Aetna Dental insurance? A family dentist office that is in network with Aetna? If so, you’ve come to the right place!

We are a family oriented dental office that participates with nearly all versions of Aetna dental insurance (also called Aetna Dental PPO). From kids to seniors, from simple fillings to specialty procedures such as wisdom teeth extractions or IV sedation, our office can help you with nearly any dental need. Please note that we DO NOT participate with Aetna DMO.

Some dental offices in the greater New Haven area that elect to accept this insurance will double book patients, rush through procedures, or periodically push extras such as whitening or other procedures. Not us! We offer gentle, personalized care in a friendly, modern office. And we have ceiling mounted TVs! Check out our Reviews on this page or Google us to see how much our patients love us.

What Does it Mean When You “Accept Aetna Dental” Insurance?

A dental office can elect to become “in network” or to “accept the insurance” or to become “participating providers.” These are all different ways of saying the same thing. When this is done, the dentist(s) and insurance company contractually agree on multiple items when the dentist is treating patients covered by that insurance plan. In nearly all cases, this results in cost savings for the patient.

As an example, for many Aetna Dental PPO plans, they cover 2 cleanings and 2 exams per year at no out of pocket expense to you. This applies ONLY IF you visit a dentist who participates with that plan. If you elect to visit a dentist out of network, it is possible there will be expenses associated with the cleanings that you did not expect.

As always, every insurance plan is different. But there are advantages to visiting a dentist who takes the insurance (assuming they have a clean and modern office with a great staff like we do!).
